What a lovely shot! But I see the main impact coming from refractions in the crystal container, and not reflections.

Very interesting image. I like blending of the grays. I also like the selective use of the color. Also, good placement in the frame.

The shadows cast as reflections are a bit too busy. Wondering if this could have been taken from another angle to avoid that.

Superb advertising photography, a rather multi-faceted use of reflections
Expect this will be in DeBeers holiday campaign?
Interested in the show and tell.
