Problems Focusing

Hi, I am having problems focusing when taking pictures of jewellery. I photograph in a lightbox using a Nikon D40x in aperture mode F16.

When I photograph a ring, I point and shoot and it comes out great. Clear as a bell.

When I photograph a necklace (especially sparkly ones) certain parts  will be in focus but other parts will be blurry.

I take a lot photographs but I am not experienced with settings. I autofocus everything, area mode is set to single area and metering is set to matrix. I have messed about with different settings but I cannot seem to get everything in focus over a large area.

Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong? Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks in advance, Sarah.
