I would not even know that your shots are about the jewelry. I think the best advice could be to recommend you this class: https://www.photigy.com/course/jewelry-workshop-with-model-post-production/#
This is not my field of expertise, so my main advice, besides the class above, is to study jewelry ads. How often does the model look into the camera?
There is lots of room to improve in the hair and makeup for the model, the lighting (it is common to add a behind the scenes image, so that you can judge the lighting setup), as well as the post production.

Welcome to Photigy, Thanks for posting and becoming part of the community.
When your posting images on Photigy please include at least one behind the scene image of how you shot the image. It might also be helpful if you include equipment used and camera settings. Since Photigy is a educational community we want the education to go both ways. You educate us with the BTS image and camera settings and we give you feedback on your images. So please include a BTS image or lighting diagram (actual images preferred over diagram) as soon as possible. You will also find that most of the membership will not respond to a post if a BTS image is not provided. You can look at some of the other posts to get an idea what the other members are posting for BTS images. If you have forgotten to take a BTS image before you have torn down the set as a last resort you can use a lightingdiagram.com if you must.

Good start, but you need to do more work on them. Since we already have covered exactly this type of shots on the course Andreas suggested (https://www.photigy.com/course/jewelry-workshop-with-model-post-production/#), I’ll suggest the same.
Tae a course, see what you can do better based on lessons, and come back with new shots.

- Beer Photography With One Light & Post-Production
Great tut for compositing product images. 4Glad Ilya said that these images were far from perfect. I was worried for a minute. But I learned a lot about one light and compositing. Would have liked to see more Photoshop instruction.

very good course 5I liked the explanations, both of the photo shoot, and the retouching, for those who want to get into the world of the food photo, the only thing I would have liked was that the dishes were a little more sensible for us to carry out the practice as closely as possible.

ElenaTuckFood Photography for Beginners
Very good intro to food photography 4Food photography was a completely new subject for me. This course was easy to follow and easy to practice for a non professional as me. It does not need a lot of material. The post production part was quite simple, i did not lear much but it is true that result was very good even if only basic techniques were used. Beside the course, I started to post some of my practiced works on the forum and I received a very good support from the instructor. He also gave several advises that pushed me further and help me to dig further to understand some problems such lighting spots, ... So, very with this course.
