    hmm. try all black round? as far as i can tell, ur operating with a white bg and white everything. a black lens will certainly stand out more as a reflection. perhaps a all back might help too. maybe. i cant comfirm until i try it myself. which isnt anytime soon.

    after reading, i think its easier for him to use a flatbed scanner to scan the jewellery... LOL...

    to answer ur question, it all boils down to the client, client say white background, shadowless, u lppl also must do it.

    and its silver, unless he is using a stand of some sort, else shooting on black velvet/silk will see crease or dust.

    You still can see the reflection of the front cover, but not as obvious as the black camera body.
