you are right this is very hard, i tried with different settings on manual and it was a guessing game till i was able to get something. I then had to go into photoshop and fix the images to get something somewhat decent. btw, i used an led flashlight above the ring at different angles till i was able to get some sparkle but it is hard.

f/2.8 ISO 400 try 1/50 then 1/30 and so on. Hold the ring in a fixed spot, i am sure you know. look through your view finder till you see that sparkle. You have to move the LED till you see it.

The Diamond is refracting light at different angles and you must adjust the camera to that. I suggest using a tripod with a remote,...

I agree with you that color might not be the best maybe b&w would work for the photo. At the same time what might not be interesting to us might have artistic value to someone else.
