to make rings textures

good luck

Thanks for the advice. I did a bit of looking around and came across this site that showed me how to create the texture.


I was wondering if it is possible to create a realistic diamond with YafaRay as well. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Some other post on ring


For rings, and other bright shiny things that are “precious-s-s-s-s-s”, it really pays to look upon the material/texture from the point-of-view of material nodes. In other words, the end result is not the result of “just one effect,” but rather, “several effects, combined.”

A beautiful Ring (“of Power” or otherwise…) seems to have a depth to it, and that comes from the blending of several different visual effects at the same time. As the eye regards the object, it latches on to each of these competing effects, one at a time, but regards them as a whole. If the object (or the light) is moving, each of the effects reacts in a slightly different way, greatly enhancing the realism.

Shameless self promotion: I have a tutorial up on my blog and on youtube discussing just this effect without the use of yafray. To get the caustic lighting, however, yafray is the way to go, however, my tutorial will bring some pretty nice results. Not the ONLY way to do it, but the more you know, the better off you are right? Check it out. Links below.
