Hong Kong Chapter: How to Photograph Jewelry with a Smartphone

This emerald ring in a yellow gold mounting with tapered baguette diamonds is from the GIA Collection and was photographed with a mobile phone. It was photographed on a white tile background using museum wax to hold the ring up. Diffusion paper and reflector cards were used to light up the gems.
