I don't know much about shooting jewelry except that the lighting is very important. Your target price is probably too low unless you already have some studio lighting available. That said, my suggestion is that you do asearchon the word"jewelry" in the search box at the top of the page. There are plenty of posts on this topic and if you browse throught them you may get a better idea of what you are looking for.

The Nikon CoolPix 4500 along with Nikon's SL-1 Macro Cool-Light would be ideal for you. Unfortunately, they don't fit your price guideline. The SL-1 sells on eBay for around $80. If you're comfortable with buying used, the CoolPix 950, 990,or 995 would be excellent choices, also. Even some much older CoolPix models will work well but they will require an adapter to use the SL-1. The CoolPix line is renowned for its macro capability.
