As with most product shots, but esp with black matte or shiny objects, those objects are defined by the presence/absence of highlights. Create/manage those highlights with your lights and/or reflectors.

... and post-processing. It's virtually impossible to capture all of the detail with just lights, reflectors, etc. Some things just have to be done in post.
