Blurring out the background in post shot rarely works in a convincing manner, Your better of to use a wider aperture when shooting takes place....!, The bokeh on that particular Nikon lens is supposed to be quite nice all by itself....!!

The crop is an odd size, Too high compared to width, Or to narrow compared to height, If you wanted the necklace on show, Then maybe the crop or composition should have been wider.

Generally has the look of a tad to much processing all round.

Thanks Cameracat,
The original did have a blurred background but not as much as I wanted, I thought it looked better after more was added, I'm afraid I don't conform to the norm when it comes to crops, if it works for me I tend to go with it. I do appreciate your comments.
