How to add shine to the dress?

I was photographing some dolls. Parts of their costumes have gold and silver tassels. They are shiny in reality, but dull on photographs. The person who wanted me to take the photos told me she wants these shiny parts to be shiny on photographs too. Its possible to do something like this in Photoshop?
Lets say, you have something gold and silver, but it looks dull and you want to add shine to it.
I know, this is probably matter of lighting too.

Hi santoro80,

it would be helpful if you could post the actual photo or at least the part showing the tassels. As for adding shine, what about trying to add highlights by dodging and burning where it's necessary?

Re: How to add shine to the dress?

Hi Santoro80, as Moniquette says, we can give you more info after seeing the photo u're working on.

Anyway there are a lot of methods to do this, from manual shine (brushing) to playing with adj.layers and blending modes.
Have u tried to create a black layer in screen mode and adding on it a very light lens flare? Or just painting some white glow shine and with overlay blending mode playing with it?

Let us know,
