You can write a simple text or use a letter as I did. I will make a D shape gold jewelry using the Fortuna Dot free font.
Open the layer style window of the D Letter Layer and reduce the Fill to 0%. Add a Stroke like shown in the image.
Now you have to rasterize the layer style of the D Letter Layer; to do that you must create a new blank layer and merge the two layers. To create a realistic gold effect you have to add the following layer styles:
Inner Shadow; color#ffee3e
Bevel and Emboss; colors #ffe222 and #954a00
Color Overlay; color #e1ae00
Gradient Overlay; color #030300 and #e2c000
Satin; color #927100
