Extremely easy to get and can be done on any level if you look in the right places. You need to look for the giant golden rings, there is one within the first minute of the first level which is where you will more than likely get this achievement.

After the first encounter with Knuckles head to the right, after jumping over the rhino badnik and the spike traps drop down and then do a spin dash (Down + A) against the left wall, it should break and reveal a giant ring - simply jump into it.

You will be transported to a '3D' special stage full of red and blue sphere's, your aim is to collect all the blue spheres in order to get an emerald. Collecting a red sphere will cause you to leave the special stage empty handed so avoid these.

A trick is that if there is a square box of blue sphere's, collecting the outer ones will cause the inner ones to be automatically collected once you go around it. It will also turn them all into rings.

(You might want to check out the Points I and Points II achievements too as these can be unlocked along with this achievement)
