Yeah I feel ya.  I can’t ever seem to get a decent ring shot – flash makes it too shiney, no flash and you can’t see it and it’s blurry

To go off what @CanadianMermaid: said, use the macro setting on your camera (looks like a little flower) and adjust the contrast/brightness in post-editing.

ETA: Also, don’t use the flash. Photograph your ring in bright, natural light.

Yep, and if you are using an iPhone camera, just tap on the ring and it will focus right on it! I have actually gotten some pretty decent shots on my phone that way.

Oooh! you have a Leon Mege? nice!  (I lurk over on the Pricescope forums, and have seen a lot of his rings.  He does amazing work – though apparently he’s a bit… tempermental.)  Beautiful ring! Just gorgeous.  And I love the double claw prongs.

You have a beautiful ring.  I’m just guessing that they are using a professional camera and great lighting to take that photo.

Macro is your friend. And you have to have good lighting!
