How to photograph on commercial product

Hi Guys,
I own a  CANON REBEL XTi and I would like to take pictures at bracelets but I have been trying different settings on my camera and it does not look good. I purchase a 20' box and 2 set of lights but still my pictures look dark but when I take the pictures with my sony digital camera the pictures come out much better with enough light. Can some one give me an idea on general setting I have to set my camera to have good jewelry picture? by the way I am new into cameras.
Please advise

You likely need to modify the light source.

Try filtering the light through a white sheet so it is very diffused, you can also use several light points and several sheets to get the exact look you want.

I was asking you on settings not on diffusing  the light.
I did ask in another forum and they gave me the settings for a good jewelry picture and I got it right.
I ask you to provide me with a website to get more concise info but you never reply.
