Nice photo, a bit of a gem!! I like the compostion.
I hope you don't mind me suggesting that as you are a jeweler you will be able take a similar photo again. You should using a star filter which will give a touch of shine to the diamonds.

I've recently been working for a jeweller, shooting for his website and think you just need to brighten the background more to white, which in turn will lighten some of the darker stones and make them sparkle. Also, remove the marks from the top of the shot and make sure you have the DOF to get the facets of the stones in focus. Also placement of the stones, it looks like the largest is facing away from the camera and that would be better really focused on.
