I prefer the pure studio render, the highlights are less harsh - even with the 'double' sapphire it looks better. the 'single' sapphire looks (although undersampled) really odd.
I also have a bit of a problem with the gold - it looks too clean and pure (I have the same issue with most metals/NK renderings in various renderers).
In RL gold tends to looks much warmer, more yellow. I understand if you're unwilling to change it though as I'm sure your materials are massively complex enough
I still think the object is very detailed/realistic compared to the environment, and you should try to place it in something more real/complex/suitable.
I think it needs to look like it's worth a lot of money, and is on display, instead of placed on a piece of cloth for a photo...
