There was a lot of jewelry in the shop, and it was very beautiful.

There was so much jewelry in the shop, and it was very beautiful.


You can't use "many" because "jewelry" is an uncountable noun. You can use "a lot", or "so much". We use "many" for things that we can count.

You should also use "it" instead of "they". If you use "they", it means "jewelry" can be counted, and as we know "jewelry" cannot be counted.

If you want to use "many", you can say "many pieces of jewelry".

There were so many pieces of jewelry in the shop, and they were very beautiful.

I like "so many" better.
