3D Gold Ring with Diamonds

Trying to do some decent renderings of diamonds was a more difficult project I could imagine.

1. I tried to find a Blender tutorial with "nodes" settings for diamonds. I failed.
2. I tried to find a diamond "light setting" tutorial. I failed.
3. I realized that I was once more on my own and without help to solve my 3D problems.
4. I started to work with my own "trial and error" methods, getting every hour a bit closer to the effect I was looking for.
5. This is the final result.

As a shape the diamond isn't a very difficult geometric form.
Therefore it wouldn't be a problem to print it in "synthetic material".
But how can you print clear "glass"??? So far I didn't see anything like this coming out of a 3D printer.

Thanks Lambert for your feedback, always much appreciated.

A joke Chris, because that would be a bit easy isn't it?

And I'm still trying things in Blender but it is somewhat frustrating...

Thanks Ged.
Start your own small Blender project, don't follow tutorials.
And don't rush, it'll just make you unhappy.
