Jewlery help

I have no experience when it comes to Jewelry. Can anyone tell me how to duplicate this effect and the step needed? When I mask out the background, I have hard edges. See how beautiful the transition is from the white background on the bottom of the pix.
Thanks in advance.

Okay, I am not really sure what you are wanting to do? When I first read your message, I thought you were wanting to make the first photo look like the 2nd, is this right? If so, this is how I achieved the look. I used levels and sharpened it using the High Pass sharpening technique also, used the perspective tool to change the angle to match the one in the photo. That was it really! Because of the compression, I couldn't do much as far as the little diamonds go, but anywho. If that's not what you meant, let me know! Any q's just ask.

Hmmm. Interesting one.

To get a similar result I used a curves layer and simply set black and white points, then adjusted the white level a little more to blow out the background. Other adjustments were a fairly major image transform/distort, to get the ring the same shape as the 'retouched' version. Also a bit of a colour adjustment. Finally a USM - though the small size means it will never be as crisp as the original retouch.

Oops - Amber posted as I was typing - she said it all really!

Thank you both for your response. Yes, i am trying to get the first picture to resemble the second. What do you mean by" using the High Pass sharpening technique?"

The high pass sharpening technique is just another sharpening technique. The technique is this, you duplicate your image and change the mode to overlay, now go under Filters>other>high pass in the window you can change the settings to sharpen the image.
BTW- I like what you did with the new rings, looks great.
