Hi all)
I searching any information - how making macro films for jewelry.
I think do it with Canon 7d + EF 100 mm f/2.8 USM Macro. But don't sure in this decision, and found useful tips only for photo jewelry.

The most important part of filming jewellery is lighting. It's all very shiny reflective surfaces so what you light with will almost certainly be reflected. For this reason it is usually best to use some form of "light tent" or lots of large scrims or cards around the piece. Hard lights will reflect as sharp "pings" of light, carefully placed these can be used to advantage but can also be quite troublesome.

Google will find you plenty of tutorials I thought this one was quite good; http://www.bmpt1.com/tutorialimages/jewelry01/jewelrytutorial01.html

50 mm 1.2 canon lens will work great for this. Yes, lighting is incrredibly important. You don't have to spend a lot on this equipment. LED back lighting will give you depth.

Also look into buying a small slider system such as the glidetrack, DP Slider, etc. to give you some nice smooth motion.
