    If I understand correctly, you want a flare to give the shot sparkle. I would suggest a cross-screen or star filter.

    as far as i know from looking into giving the "sparkle" to gems, use lots of point source lights (high powered LEDs set up like a macro flash ring are what i saw being used in a manual) . Havent tried it myself but i would imagine no filter is needed if you get that set up :)
