To achieve consistency with your jewelry images, we recommend the following rules of thumb:

  1. Always clean your smartphone camera lens with a microfiber cloth before photographing your jewelry.

  2. Make sure your jewelry is clean and use gloves to place and maneuver your jewelry where possible.

  3. Make sure your GemLightbox Photography Table or GemLightbox Turntable is clean, and that there are no specks of dust or blemishes.


Capturing Jewelry Images and Videos

There are 3 simple steps to capturing the perfect jewelry image or video:

1. Zoom into your jewelry.
Generally, your jewelry piece should fill out the center square of the GemLightbox Application screen.

2. Tap to focus on your jewelry.
The best parts to focus on are the highly detailed areas; for example, the main stone.

3. Adjust brightness as required.
We recommend adjusting brightness to the sweet spot where the background is whitened and your image not overexposed.

And capture!
