Without the jewelry, it is just another picture of a pretty face, one picture among millions.

It is not a famous face.  It is not a face conveying emotion of any particular nature.  It is not a face with lighting and shadow and contrast of extraordinary effects.   So, intended or not, the jewelry, the background color, the pose, the clear right eye, the left eye behind the strands all add up to a portrait that compels a second look and maybe even more than that.

You will disagree, but that is how I see it.
