    it's not the angle of the jewelry, it's the angle and quality of your lights. for shiny objects you should almost never be shooting with the light pointed directly at the surface. what you want to do instead is bounce the light onto a white board or reflector which in turn will illuminate the surface. also, put your lighting more to the side of the jewerly. yes this will create shadows but that is what another fill light is for. this is why jewerly lighting in general can be very complicated because shooting shiny surfaces are all about specular highlights....the reflections.

    overall i still think you did a pretty good job. i really like how you positioned the jewelry, it is very fluid and very dynamic. makes it more interesting than if you just kept it in a straight line.
