This post is about common mistakes with ring photos. Today is the "eye don't" bad ring positions in photos. The next post is "Eye Do" for quality photo images.
"Eye Don't" use a stick or mandrel through the ring.
"Eye Don't" prop up the rings with sticks or any other fixture. It looks awkward and hides the ring.
While this ring photo isn't bad, it isn't as good as it could be. Laying down the ring is lifeless, and we should see more of the stone on top. In addition, the hallmark (inside the ring) is upside down. Standing up the ring (as shown in the diamond ring to the right) looking at the shoulder of red stones, and the hallmark inside the ring would be a vast improvement.
Stay tuned for better ring photos in the next post on ASK Harriete.
