Improving product photography

I have been working on improving the photos for my etsy shop. I started out using black stones to place my jewellery on.  My very first pictures were taken on Brighton beach.  I liked the arty shots of the rings against the rocks.  They were light coloured rocks and i thought black stones might be better.

Silver is supposed to look best on a black background. However, I found they just got lost in the rocks.

I moved on to using the rocks as props and a mirror as a reflective surface.

Now I am moving on to a white background with an orchid as an occasional prop.

I like the orchid, it was a present from some lovely friends for my birthday.  I think they are showing the jewellery off in a much better light (pardon the pun).  What do you think?
