A few days back, I decided to use my Canon camera for a “photo-shoot” of loose diamonds I have on hand. Being an amateur, I experimented with various compositions with the hope of capturing some beautiful diamond photographs.
Out of a hundred shots made, I’ve selected some of my favorite photos below. Feel free to give a critique or leave a comment on what you think.
My favorite shot occurred by accident when a curious and happened to creep by.
Using yellow Ixora flowers as a backdrop with a round brilliant cut diamond
Mix and match of Ixora buds and purple petals with an oval shaped diamond
The marquise diamond picks up an orangey tone in its body

An elegant display of purple flowers to match the sexy pear shaped gem
These pictures were shot with a compact camera (Powershot SX 200IS) using the built-in macro function. Hoped you enjoyed reading this blog post as much as I did photographing these pretty little gems.
Diamonds are notoriously hard to photograph because of their optics and facet reflections. As a consumer, I love to share stuff on social media especially when it comes to important moments like a wedding or an engagement ring.
Unless you are a professional photographer, it’s not that straightforward to capture Instagram worthy images or great looking photos of your engagement ring. Here’s where great vendors like White Flash and High Performance Diamonds stand out.
With every engagement ring purchase, they actually take beautifully crafted images of your finished ring or jewelry item as a FREE value added service. This enables you to easily share them with friends or family on social networks.
Check out these amazing photographs of the actual rings that White Flash made and delivered to clients.
This is a set of stunning engagement ring photos that High Performance Diamonds took for the engagement ring I received. If you are interested in more details, you can read all about the review here.
