WordPress can't get jquery/unslider to work

I don’t know what I’m doing wrong… I’m using the starter timber theme… I’m trying unslider to work with my theme… indicated here is somehow a proof I did right in putting scripts from the function.php…

<script type='text/javascript' src='http://localhost/luxjeweler/wp-content/themes/timber-starter-theme-master/includes/js/jquery.js?ver=1'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://localhost/luxjeweler/wp-content/themes/timber-starter-theme-master/includes/resources/bootstrap/js/bootstrap.min.js?ver=1'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://localhost/luxjeweler/wp-content/themes/timber-starter-theme-master/includes/js/bootstrap-wp.js?ver=1'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://localhost/luxjeweler/wp-content/themes/timber-starter-theme-master/includes/js/skip-link-focus-fix.js?ver=1'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://localhost/luxjeweler/wp-content/themes/timber-starter-theme-master/includes/unislider/js/unslider-min.js?ver=1'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://localhost/luxjeweler/wp-content/themes/timber-starter-theme-master/includes/js/stickyFooter.js?ver=1'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://localhost/luxjeweler/wp-content/themes/timber-starter-theme-master/script.js?ver=1'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://localhost/luxjeweler/wp-includes/js/wp-embed.min.js?ver=4.4.2'></script>

but somehow jquery is not working… tried using the jquery enqueue default provided by wordpress and a custom enqueue but with no success… I tried testing by using this simple code:

$(document).ready(function(){
   alert("test");
}); 

no response when I refresh the page…

Edit (15-02-16):

This is my enqueue function:

function luxjewels_scripts() {

    // Import the necessary TK Bootstrap WP CSS additions
    wp_enqueue_style( 'luxjewels-bootstrap-wp', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/css/bootstrap-wp.css', false, '1');

    // load bootstrap css
    wp_enqueue_style( 'luxjewels-bootstrap', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/resources/bootstrap/css/bootstrap.css', false, '1' );

    // load Font Awesome css
    wp_enqueue_style( 'luxjewels-font-awesome', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/css/font-awesome.min.css', false, '1' );

    // load styles
    wp_enqueue_style( 'luxjewels-style', get_stylesheet_uri() );

    wp_enqueue_style( 'luxjewels-unslider', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/unslider/css/unslider.css', true, '1');



    wp_enqueue_script( 'luxjewels-jquery', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/js/jquery.js', array(), '1', true );

    // load bootstrap js
    wp_enqueue_script('luxjewels-bootstrapjs', get_template_directory_uri().'/includes/resources/bootstrap/js/bootstrap.min.js', array(), '1', true);

    // load bootstrap wp js
    wp_enqueue_script( 'luxjewels-bootstrapwp', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/js/bootstrap-wp.js', array(), '1', true);
    wp_enqueue_script( 'luxjewels-skip-link-focus-fix', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/js/skip-link-focus-fix.js', array(), '1', true );

    // load Unslider js and css
    wp_enqueue_style( 'luxjewels-unslider-dots', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/unslider/css/unslider-dots.css',  false, '1', true);

    wp_enqueue_script('luxjewels-unslider-min', get_template_directory_uri().'/includes/unslider/js/unslider-min.js', array(), '1', true);


    // load stickyfooter js
    wp_enqueue_script( 'luxjewels-stickyfooter', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/js/stickyFooter.js', array(), '1', true );

    // load custom js
    wp_enqueue_script( 'luxjewels-custom-script', get_template_directory_uri() . '/script.js', array(), '1', true );

}
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'luxjewels_scripts' );

$(document).ready(function(){
   alert("test");
}); 

It could be that your jQuery is working in compatibility mode. Try replacing $ with jQuery:

jQuery(document).ready(function(){
   alert("test");
}); 

Edit: As per the author edit on the post:

jQuery(document).ready(function(){
   jQuery('.automatic-slider').unslider({
        autoplay: true
    });
}); 

Remove this line:

wp_enqueue_script( 'luxjewels-jquery', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/js/jquery.js', array(), '1', true );

And replace the following line:

wp_enqueue_script( 'luxjewels-custom-script', get_template_directory_uri() . '/script.js', array(), '1', true );

with:

wp_enqueue_script( 'luxjewels-custom-script', get_template_directory_uri() . '/script.js', array('jquery'), '1', true );

Explanation:

The instead of loading our custom jQuery library, we can simply load jQuery from the core. And declaring dependency, we’re doing this simply by modifying our second line of code.
