    the first thing I notice is the light source on the first image comes from one side... that alone presents a tiny amount of light and shadow on every small detail of the brooch. Mimic that on your version and it'll instantly start to lot 'real' imo.

    The "Legacy" image also uses a bunch of PS layer effects like bevels and drop shadows. They're very very useful for this sort of thing, adding a bit of depth to what's essentially line art.
