Try not using the Zoom but get physically closer to the stone. You will get a better pic.... IMO.
Use a light bulb or what ever for extra light..first mske sure to adjust the white balance.
ADD.EDIT: If your selling the stone of course the color has to be equal to the stone..otherwise a disappointed buyer.

Joe,

The real issue here is, jewelery is just bi*ch to shoot. Here are links to a couple pro articles for how to shoot jewelery properly.

Techniques for Shooting Jewelery
http://www.webphotoschool.com/Lesson...lry/index.html

Basic Lighting Options for Jewelery and Small Object Photography
http://www.ganoksin.com/borisat/nenam/light.htm

Both are good. The first is more thorough, the second is better for beginners.

Nick

and I do, Nick! And thanks John.

Eventually, the jewelry will be in the website. It's become a necessity, I've spent more time working on the photography lately than jewelry design.Ultimately better than a 3 hr drivetoNew York to show it.

Best you can do with PhotoFiltre and it is not even close to the same thing ans Nick posted is to sharpen edges.

Where it says Filter to make adjustments there is sharpen between soften and noise.

Give that a try.
