Using a jewelry photography lightbox to photograph jewelry isn’t new. However, the GemLightbox from Picup Media is taking jewelry photography to a whole new level. Not only is this technology making it possible for amateur photographers to capture professional images and videos, but the add-on tech options such as the 360 product photography turntable and the 360 Product Photography App are changing jewelry product photography and eCommerce platforms.

It’s difficult to imagine that a product capable of giving such amazing results could be so easy to use, but the GemLightbox system is truly an all-in-one solution for a jewelry photoshoot. By integrating the jewelry lightbox with the product turntable, you can capture picture-perfect photos and videos of your jewelry. Ring photography, particularly engagement or wedding ring photography, is so important to get right and with a product turntable and the 360 Product Photography App, you can give potential buyers the ability to virtually examine each ring from every angle. Images of gemstones, earrings, and bracelets are equally brilliant when using the GemLightbox product photo booth. Pair the lightbox with the GemLightbox Turntable Aerial Set and you have a perfect studio setup for pendant photography, drop earring photography, and necklace photography.

360-degree product photography works for you in so many ways. Not only do you get studio-quality images and videos with just one click, but you can save time and money by concentrating on the other aspects of your business that you do best. You can enjoy the increased engagement and return on investment through social media platforms, and increase the amount of time any potential customers spend on your website. The ultimate goal is to sell jewelry, and quality jewelry product photography is the crucial first step in the process.
