    Thanks mrsawyer: I was so concerned with getting a good depth of field that I had the camera in Aperture mode, and tried multiple photos. I think it chose the 200 ISO for every photo as far as I can remember. I have discarded some of them. I have one which I think is better focussed but I liked the sparkle better in this one. I will put up the other on Outtakes to see if you can give me any suggestions.
I had read that it was hard to photograph jewellery and they are quite correct. Didn't want to use the Sparkle filter so tried the hard way. I used a tripod and remote release.

    A beautiful choice for the challenge. It would have been nice if more of the brooch was in focus. Did you try any photos with a higher ISO?

correction, I meant to say DOF instead of ISO.

    Jewelry is so difficult to photograph, and you have done a great job. Excellent detail, lots of sparkles and great colour.

    Not a fan of the background but your subject is one of the few that actually says "sparkle". In my favs.

    Love this - the colours and textures are great together and you have caught just the right amount of sparkle. In my TT.

    Nice try - but needs to be sharper to capture the sparkles. Perhaps it was before compression?

    An impressive jewelry piece, with plenty of sparkle. Love the s-curve fold in the fabric, which unfortunately is in better focus than are the jewels.
