As I could not afford to take a real photo of this scene, I decided to make it in Blender:
Seriously, this is nothing very special, but I want to show it because of the overall impression. It’s modeled with Blender and rendered with Cycles @ 3000 samples (way too much, but it took only 45 mins :D). By the way, caustics are off.
You might have noticed that the gold material is not very realistic, but a realistic material would destroy the composition of the picture. If you want to, I can show you a realistic picture anyway.

Any suggestions or criticism are welcome. Please don’t punch me for my bad english.
P.S.: Worth of the scene: approximate 2,700,000 $
