By the looks of it that's just maually drawn in.
It takes some time and studying real jewellery the way the light and shadows move to get it perfect.

To smooth out the texture in the middle, just select the area and use surface blur.

The rest of the shot looks drawn on. I don't think it's the best retouch / shot however. The center piece is clearly supposed to be textured... I've shot for clients that would put up a hissy fit if I altered something like that.

The bottom when it comes to shinny objects - shoot it right. Sounds cliche but it's true. I would have done a locked down shot and lit the piece a few ways, then combined them in post.

Unhappy Re: airbrushing jewelry any idea how?

I rented a couple of videos on this site. I was really disappointed. Reaffirms the fact that someone can be an "expert" on something and not have one clue how to teach it. The narrator asks too many questions and so the flow is broken up constantly. The retoucher skips around all over the place. I wish I could see videos that start from the beginning when you are given the image and show the progression. I rented the videos of Steve Koshlap. If someone has a different experience with other "experts", please let me know.
