I can use a reflection map for such objects but its not gonna be a real reflections.. so for the real reflections i suppose to create a translucence effect in the reflection environments...which is real world can be created with the cloth like material...

have a look at the detailed setup : http://www.tabletopstudio.com/documents/jewelry_photography.htm

Is there anyother way to diffuse the light ? such diffuse lighting is very necessary in jewelry renderings...

Thank you in advance.

regards

JEet

Instead of diffusing a light through the material, make the material itself the emitter. Try to keep the emitter's poly count as low as possible in order to lower render times.
