I took a minute and looked at the Copyright office site, and as I was suggesting you can register the art as Jewelry (individually) or as a photo set to protect the photos themselves.
 
When you file to protect jewelry then you have to meet their requirements for ewach piece.  (Using form VA)
 
If you want to protect the photos (as described above)  that is protecting only the photos themselves.

Take a peek at the following rule (Courtesy of mactheknife)
 
37 CFR 202.3(b)(3)(i).  
 
The regulation describes circumstances under which a collection can be registered as a single work.

The section you refer to includes the following statement.  THe statement appears to NOT INCLUDE Jewelry.
 
Class VA: Works of the visual arts -  
This class includes all published and unpublished pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works. Examples: Two dimensional and three dimensional works of the fine, graphic, and applied arts; photographs; prints and art reproductions; maps, globes, and charts; technical drawings, diagrams, and models; and pictorial or graphic labels and advertisements.

Go to this page
http://www.copyright.gov/register/visual.html
 
Then follow the link to "examples" of visual arts.  You'll find "jewelry designs" among other things.

I also found the following link of the web:

They tend to agree that the set can be combined if there is some relationship between the items of the collect.
