love the title and play on rocks but picture seems a little over exposed, commenting only, not voting

I think it's perfect: 10

Maybe a bit too bright but a very nice setup. I like the border.

Nice shot. I can imagine this in a jewellery store catalogue.

the lighting seems a bit harsh, but I like your idea and the composition!

Good use of high key, very clean layout. The blown bit in the diamond itself might not be a good thing for a product ad, but the overall effect of the shot is very good.

Great idea and composition, light on the clear gem is a bit harsh. Well worth an 8 though.

I like the over exposure....but I think a bit less of it would've been more effective.

the whites are a little blown out in the center of the ring, but i've heard lighting diamonds are one of the singlemost hardest (lol) things to light properly. so i'll give you alot of credit for at least attempting it, and pulling off a decent shot. good luck

a bit of contrast might have helped your harsh lighting

Lighting seems very harsh, highly recommend diffusing to make the light a larger light source to make it more pleasing. Also light from the sides to prevent direct reflections to the camera.

Slightly overexposed on my monitor. Clever presentation.

nicely arranged, could appear in a catalog if the lights weren't blown
