Really nice except for the fake DOF, which looks like a strange blur/glow effect.

not sure pearls are always that round and perfect and the gold has a uniform bump/ noise which loses it's appeal- but you're working on that you say

thanks for the comments...
@Nik Clark... its not a fake DOF, I used the ZDepth Map for applying the blur... instead of photosho I used Nuke... but the result is the same...

Anyway, It is first time I use DOF, what will be the proper result on this? please advice!

That is fake DOF. See that weird glow on the pearls in the mid-ground? That looks fake.

also, if you plan on using this render for anything other than testing then your tabletop surface is way to smooth.

Find the smootest surface where you are a take a macro shot of it and go watch that close up in photoshop.

You will see that wood is never this smooth, not even when its polished....

I also agree that the pearl are to smooth/even in their roundness.

Ok, I updated the render (see at the beginning of this post) more realistic than before...
