    You could hang a black colored back drop behind it.

    Way underexpose for the ambient light and flash the subject.

    Visit the craft store and pick up black & white foam-core board (really cheap). Black foam-core board in the back. Put a couple of lights behind to help the glass glow. You can use either black or white foam-core board on the sides depending on how you want to accent the edges of the glass against the black background.

    Well, if you have CS5 there is a way to do it. It takes about 45 min to an hour to get it right, but nonetheless it works. Look for a youtube video on it.... if you have photoshop that is.

    A large single piece of paper curving from the table top to the background creates an infinity background. White should work as well as black.
