I'm trying to take a photo of a small, princess cut (square), 0.5 carat diamond . I have hard time placing it on a surface as I would like to one of the diamonds sides to be flat on the table. The problem is that the diamond isn't always cut in a way that it 'sits' on one of its sides like in the following image:
In the following image the diamond 'sits' on one of its pavilion facets (all the square sides are 'floating' in the air). This is the case for most of the small sized diamonds.
I tried using jewelry wax to glue the diamond in place but I then get reflection of the wax inside the diamond and I can clearly see the gluing material under the diamond (macro lens)
What I'm looking is a way to glue the diamond to the surface without seeing reflections of the gluing material inside the diamond. maybe some sort of a thin transparent sticky material other than jey.
