How can I make it look more like this? Just for experimenting. Silver, and sterling silver are very reflective of the color it is around so it doesn't look professional as much in a picture above because it's harder to make it look as good as it is in reality.
A VIDEO TUTORIAL WOULD BE NICE IF YOU HAVE THE TIME LOL. THANK YOU GOD BLESS
I don't know a huge amount about this. But its all to do with the lighting when the photograph is taken. I would suggest looking for "photographing rings" in you tube as well as here.
Its more of a photographer thing with a tweak in photoshop.
Take a look here DigPro Product Photography Tutorial- Jewelry Diamond Ring LED Standing - YouTube hope it might help
I am by no mean an expert and I'm sure there are easier ways to accomplish this... however one way is to do something like this:
-Use selection tool to select all blue background, soften the edges of the selection then delete the selection.
-Here you will have a white background and dull looking image with not the greatest edges.
-Zoom waaaay in and use a softer eraser brush on the edges.
-Use various sharpening, brightening, white levels adjustments to make your image prettier.
-Pay attention to the diamond, select the diamond with a selector tool and sharpen, etc. Consider adding a layer to add additional detail to just the diamond.
-Consider using the clone stamp to smooth out any markings on the silver tone band.
