Looks like you are significantly under exposed. Do not depend on the camera's auto exposure, go to manual mode. What camera are you using?

Properly photographing gemstones and jewelry is very challenging. You need to learn your camera, have a well designed lighting scheme, and be able to do at least minor post processing.

Here is a link to a site that shows what a nice photograph should look like. Note that backgrounds are pure in tone, and details of both stone and metal are open and revealing. Enjoy...
