I don't know how well it would work for macro, but i know my wife's diamonds tend to be the most sparkly in rooms with lots of small overhead lights. Often, that's what they have in a jewelry store.

My observation is that they really sparkle with movement - hard to catch with still photography. But as Plakanina has pointed out in this thread some hard light as a kicker could add this sparkle missing even from my best attempt.

Thanks for looking and for your suggestion! Much appreciated.
