My camera has a close-up option that works very well.  Otherwise, with my old camera it helped if you held your hand away and zoomed in to get a close-up of my ring.

Set it to macro, dont use a flash, but make sure its in a nice bright place.  Dont get too close to it or it cant focus, you probably need to be about 2.5-3 feet away.  Use the highest megapixels you can, then just crop and resize the picture as needed.

My first photos turned out horrible…

My best early photos happened because as the others said I took them outdoors in natural light.  Then I used my photoshop program to zoom in and crop the picture.

It was only later, that I recalled that I had a Macro function on my camera… duh.

That would have made things easier right from the get go no doubt.
