    I was having a hard time with this 365 shot. The diamonds were so flat looking in every shot and just didn't have that sparkle. This was the edit I ended up with but I'm just not happy with it. After trying to get the diamonds to "POP", I ended up just doing to much with them and now the image looks soft and OOF. The rings started off crisp and the diamonds looked ok...ish. But just not great. Might I need to go macro to get this shot?

    If you want to take photo of diamond ring or diamond. There are so many lens are available in market, like single lens and simple lens. This both lens will capture photo without sparking and extra lighting, and other thing it is not costly, you can get it so cheapest cost.

    here's my two sense...(smell and taste?)

    a nice light tent build you must , even lighting very well it works, small light get you must, diamond ring on it shine,

    translation:
    get a little led pen light and shine it at the ring
    use off-camera strobes
    keep experimenting, you'll find what works...

    I agree with your advice that just the right lighting works and I think the shot looks decent. I find the yoda style a bit interesting.... I would suggest try a little less harsh lighting something nice and soft so it doesn't shine or look to bright.

    All I have are 45s and 9s... That bust have been the problem.

    haha good idea! You can build some really nice soft boxes out of cardboard boxed. They are especially good for small subjects

    You know what, I also love jewelry photography! There's just something about it that makes me want to pick up my camera and shoot. I don't favor a particular brand or shop but if I have to pick one, I'd pick Galicia Fine Jewelers' rings as my subject. They just exude beauty and elegance.
