the ruby/Garnet would really have popped if you had wiped the condensation off of it first. nice contrast.

Hope it does not get caught in the dispenser! Nice and clear, I like the detail of the condensation on the stone.

To me, the concept of "ice on ice" would really have been driven home if the ring, particularly the center stone, would have been as shiny as possible. There's condensation on the ring which, to me, is distracting.

Hmmm... doesn't do it for me. Seems too contrived. I think that's a ring but it doesn't catch my attention.
