Lighting Challenge #19: The King's Treasure

Challenge #19 features 3D models of gems and jewelry you can render. The challenge is the bring the scene to life in a way that helps all the different gems and precious metals look believable, sparkling, and valuable. You can download the files from here:


MIRROR
3DS
BGEO
LWO
LXO
MB
OBJ
XSI

This scene was modeled by Dan Konieczka and Juan Carlos Silva. Please credit them for the modeling if you post your renderings on your webpage or include a scene on your showreel. Here's a screenshot of the raw models that you will start with:



As always, changes to the scene and models are allowed, and all 3D rendering techniques are allowed. When you find the time, please share information about your software and techniques and set-up after you post your scene.

Jewelry can be a challenge to render, get started early on this challenge for the best results!

Hmm, i doubt so. You might need raytracing for the refractions in the gems and diamonds unless you want to fake it using painted texture. I might be wrong.
