This might not be a Gordian knot solution, bit what about shifting your way out of the problem with a TS lens?
don't understand what ur saying
what do u mean by TS lens?
thanks

A Tilt-Shift lens. Gives you the opportunity to shoot distorting the perspective, thus avoiding the reflection.

Hey omar,

Congratulations on your committment to do jewelry photography.  It is going to be very challenging, but one I'm sure you can handle.  I'd just like to offer some words of advice, in that this is going to be incredibly difficult to get no reflections.  This is NOT going to be an easy task at all and could take a very long time to master.  But that's the fun in it right?  Good luck and remember to post photos here and there!
