Fresh 90 Mage, what should I focus on to improve my gear quickly?

I've been told to grind the Isle of Thunder and perhaps the Vale, but i need to do the entire chain for that. How are battleground items in comparison?

The 476ilvl bg items are going to get you into the lfr raids that'll get you into the throne of thunder lfr and allow you to avoid having to do quite a bit of grinding to get caught up in gear, though, you grind eitherway, you just pick your flavor. If you don't want to bother with rep, you have that option now seeing as the old pvp gear was an inadequate level 458.

As a fresh 90, I would focus on doing dungeons to get full 463's. At that, I would go to Isle of Thunder to get a Key to the Palace of Lei Shen. Use the key to get as many Greater Charms of Good Fortune that you can in the solo scenario. Use those charms in the 5.0 LFRs to get to 480 ilvl and then run ToT LFR,

The best thing about bg gear is that you can choose which one to buy.

The heroic/raid drop is random.

Are the 450 JC rings/necklaces worth it?

Actually, as a fresh 90 pure DPS run scenarios between your dungeon queues. My paladin keeps getting tank gear, but a pure doesn't have a chance of getting gear for a spec they don't have.

If you want to do it properly...

Dungeon till you have the iLvL for Scenarios > Scenarios & Heroics till you have the iLvL for raids > do raids each week and clear all bosses.
