I bought an aukley clip on 2 in 1 macro/fisheye lens from amazon for 24.99 and a selfie LED clip on light for 12.00 at Amazon.

I'm practicing taking diamond photos.

This is my 1.52
Asscher Cut, Very Good-cut, G-color, VS1-clarity from Blue Nile. The setting is platinum knife edge..

I already had the other 2 rings: channel set. I'd have to go look them up to see what they are. I don't mind the spaces between the rings because I wear all of my rings in a variety of ways. I also have a platinum wedding band, comfort setting. Sometimes I only wear the wedding band, sometimes only one channel set by itself, etc. I like to have the choice.

This is regular bedroom light.

With LED selfie light:
I'm bloated today, hence the fat red finger... you will see when I switch the rings to my pinky. Any dots you see on the diamod are dirt I need to get off. img_1491_7.jpg

Taking a break for a minute to soak and get the last little bit of grime off the diamond: it's bothering me. I want to try and get even better photos.

Meanwhile, this is the set up I'm working with: img_1525_1.jpg I have zero idea why this photo is upside down. I went back and made the original upside down in the hope this would then be right side up, but alas, it is still upside down.

I'll have to try this. I've had little success with diamond photos.

W, beautiful diamond and pics.

Great pics! The steps are so mesmerizing, and they come out so well in these close-ups.
