Hi Zander
Mark here from HDR Light Studio... please email me your bip file ([email protected]) and I'll set something up for you showing you how to do this, and post it back on this forum.
I think we can do everything you need without anything in the scene but the rings themselves.
I got your email... but I just saw this posting too... maybe other people will be interested in how I'd tackle it in HDRLS.
Regards Mark

I decided not to wait for the jewelry model from Zander and kicked right into putting a little lesson together. It takes you step by step through a simple jewely lighting set up with a colored background, the effect you are looking for Zander.

Please do check it out here: http://www.hdrlightstudio.com/lesson/keyshot_jewelry_step_by_step

Thanks for the rings model.... I'll also knock up some lighting for that model also and share my results here.

Regards
mark

Now with your rings.
This took about 10 mins fiddling around.
A good idea is to import a floor square and make it a glass material... you'll get far more realistic reflections than using ground reflections from KeyShot.
But it will cause complications with lighting because this glass will see all the lights too. If I get chance I may pop a floor in and see what it looks like.
Happy to help.

The floor worked out pretty well as dielectric material with a bit of roughness, using IOR to change reflectivity.

I am following along with your tutorial right now and when I came to step 5 it says "make the light solid and lower the brightness to zero", but there is no brightness dial so I am assuming you meant the "dark" button which makes the light black. Am I correct?

Oh never mind I see that you meant the wattage.
