try using a normal glass shader but add some refraction into it,, tweak the inside shape of the diamond so that you get the "refracted" look on it..

I enclose a render and one small animation of my diamond, than however I've rendered with lightwave, that it is simpler for me in order to obtain my scope, that is one acceptable static image
