The highlights on the bracelet seem blown out and the lights in the background are splitting the interest of the viewer. I think you need more DoF. Were you using the macro? You might need to stop down a bit.

Yes I was using canon 100mm f2.8. I think in the background it was the chain of the bracelet.

Exif :

Exposure 0.022 sec (1/45)
Aperture f/2.8

Was this handheld? Looks like I'm seeing a little bit of camera shake. a rule of thumb is: if you're shooting handheld, shoot a shutter speed faster than the equivalent of the focal length of your lens. 100mm on a crop sensor= 160mm, so you should be shooting at least 1/160 handheld. If this was shot with a tripod, maybe use the self timer or a remote release. I agree you need to stop down, the closer you are to your subject, the more shallow your depth of field. I think i see a thumb in the background, and I can't really tell it's a bracelet

Yes, it was handheld. I switched off the lights in the room and only had a table lamp ON.

I have no idea what that is. If it is a detail shot for product sales more should be in focus.

Thanks guys for your feedback. It was helpful. The image was below par. Will improve myself and would seek your feedback.

Definitely some motion blur in there. You need better light or higher ISO so you can get a decent shutter speed. Alternatively you can use a tripod.

Also, I've had a hell of a time trying to get diamonds to be properly in focus using AF. I assume crystal would be no different because of the glittery glare. I'd abandon AF and manually focus in Live View.
