Here is a lovely and slightly unusual ring I photographed for a jewellery brochure. The beautiful rose-red main stone is pear-cut rhodolite garnet surrounded by diamonds in a rose gold setting.
To capture the intensity of colour of the rhodolite, it was necessary to shoot it from a side angle so that the camera was looking through a lot of facets and not just through the front of the stone. The ring was featured along with two other pieces in less common varieties of garnet – an orange-red spessartite and diamond pendant and a green pear-cut tsavorite and diamond ring.
