I've got a jewelry shoot coming up on an f900/3 where I will need to focus down to about 1.5 inches (3.8 cm). Any suggestions for good glass for this endeavor?

Results are in. I decided to go with the 70mm Zeiss digiprime. It is a close focus lens, the barrel says 13". I wanted to get a 1.4x extender as well, but one was not available. I was a little concerned going into the shoot that lighting would be a bit compromised because the front element would be about four inches from the diamond rings, but my gaffer had a mirror trick and sparkles looked great. I was very impressed with the look of the 70 digiprime, what a treat! At absolute minimum focus I was getting about 2 1/8" field size.
