Rose cut diamond ring

1 Jul

Pretty, sparkly, shiny, new.  This is what I’ve done with this diamond.

.29 ct, 4.1 mm rose cut diamond ring

The biggest issue in photographing jewelry is the difficulty of capturing the true tones and textures of such highly reflective and refractive surfaces.  The wrong light can make it impossible!

I photographed this piece in the morning light, which often makes things look a bit green. Can you see the green cast the light has given to the diamond?  I’ll need to reshoot this ring in cleaner afternoon light.
