If you want the ring to shine on your hand, and show the best side of it, go for a manicure. Get your weather-withered hand back to being smooth and those popping out cuticles; cut short. Having neat nails with nailpaint that beautifies your skin tone is a necessity. And for this, you need not essentially go with a colour that reflects your personality. Rather, choose a colour which is mild and eye soothing. It will make the ring on that pretty hand look glorious!
If your hands are rather veiny, you can resort to the age old trick of models, to make it look fuller! Hold your hand up, above your head for a good 30 seconds. This will drain off the blood from your hand, making those protruding veins vanish. Do not have time for manicure? Take a home treatment to make your hand’s skin glow. For the nails, you can cut them out from the click.

Using the right prop or the apt background would be a better idea than going for the sole ring click. Use a clutter-free background with solid colours and keep a good distance between your hand and the background. Do not use a flash or try to pull in the focus on the ring by zooming in on it. It will blur the image. Now that you have the basic rules set for the support imagery of the ring, start looking for such props.
Suggestions: Hold hands with your man, use one of the nature’s elements, some fun statements as a background, let the man occupy the background, or use some bride’s vanity things as a background like- flowers, jewellery, and magazine.
This will totally depend on the type of ring that you pick. It could be just the rock which might be important for you, or it might be all the nuances of the ring that shall be important. But remember, there can be only two best angles to show off the ring for any of these. Top down and direct from the top. These two angles will give the most real impression of your ring, giving it best coverage in the shot.

It will simply make the beauty of the ring beam out! Move outdoor or next to the window or a door to take this shot. Just avoid the unnatural light of indoors. Also, remember to take away all the accessories that are not related to the ring.
It is crucial to try different poses and spots to get that winning shot of the ring. Keep trying till you find the picture as that perfect shot, expressing your heart and mind. Keep it perfect, soft and romantic.
