    nikon 105mm 2.8 VR macro is an awesome lens.

    or you could go cheaper and get the 60mm macro

    105mm macro
    lighting, esp since jewelry reflects a lot, you'll need good light

    I took this with my D80 and one SB600, and it was taken in the homemade light box from the link.

    I've built 2 of em so far.... They work great.

    The home-made light box worked great for me also:

    Yes, the knife is pink, not red. The only thing that bothered me was that little shadow below the knife but Im sure if I took the time I could've fix it...this was my first shot with it though.

    i've heard of people using 300mm lenses for jewerly so the reflection of the camera is minimized.

    There are those light boxes that are made to avoid reflections and shadows. I don't think you need macro either.

    I took a pic of my watch in my friends lightbox just to try it out... makes things a lot easier. Done w/my D80 and 18-200VR:
