new layer, fill with 50% grey and then set to overlay, using either black or white brush at around 3-4% you just paint in highlights and darken areas

You can see my attachment regarding the finished jewellery. You can see the surface is solid, colours blend with each other. There's some noise on the surface if I;m not mistaken.

I'm sorry..I know my post is annoying.
...so what you're talking about is changing the jewellry not retouching it. The surface isnt smooth, part of it is brushed metal, and another part has some other kind of texture - hard to tell on the pic, only 1 section of it is smooth polished metal.
You want a flat metal surface all-over?

nancy,

i think she wants the band, the backside filled in. this is actually a duplicate thread going here. there is another where someone filled in the band and that seemed to be what was wanted.

Janice have you considered 3D modelling these items using the image for texture samples and reference for the model? It seems that would be the ideal way to get what you really want also then you can change the lights and render the way you would like.

No, not the band, just a smooth solid surface .

This is just a quicky I threw together in about 10 minutes, so its not perfect but should get you closer to what you're trying to do - obviously you'll have a lot more time to work on it.

First I ran surface blur with a fairly high radius to smooth out the surface, then masked that back over the original to preserve the edges.
Then I airbrushed out some of the larger blotches and dark patches to make the rings smoother allover.
Then I merged all visible layers onto a new layer (hold down alt layers-> merge visible on a blank layer)
Then I duplicated the layer and ran plastic wrap on it (filters->artistic -> plastic wrap) with max highlight, min detail, max smoothness
and set this layers blending mode to overlay.
Thats pretty much it - except for some curves adjustments - I can never get the colour right for gold though...
