I don't mean to presume but product photography is tough. Jewelry photography is tougher!

A quick Google search for "how to photograph jewelry" produces years worth of reading but I found this article to be quite helpful:

Hi, the grey background can be removed in Photoshop using the pen tool or magic eraser or several other ways. It's time consuming. I'd recommend using a service like pixelz.com to do it for you at a low cost.

For removing the reflection, you can use the paintbrush tool or spot healing brush. Look up YouTube videos on how to use these tools.

While shooting, use a tent or some type of white reflectors or bounce cards to block outside reflection from hitting your product.

I have a bunch of jewelry photography tips on my site at http://www.jewelryshoot.com/jewelry-p...

Feel free to reach out for specific tips.
