Jewelry Photography: From Smartphone Image to E-Commerce Ready

Welcome! We have revolutionized the way jewelers take photos forever by incorporating the power of smartphone photography.

According to several studies, more than 65 percent of online shoppers put more weight on the quality of the product image more than the customer’s review and product description. These studies communicate that product photography is the most critical aspect of any e-commerce business.

In fact, the difference between top online retailers and those that barely make sales may be pinpointed just by looking at their listings. E-commerce business, particularly online jewelers, can reverse their lackluster and plummeting sales by paying attention to the effectiveness of product images.

A picture is worth more than a thousand sales. Time and again, we see jewelers rummage for photography equipment and camera supplies that are expected to bring this sales figure into reality. With reluctance, online jewelers quickly dive into big-ticket purchases whilst not fully realizing that outrageously expensive cameras do not automatically equate to studio-quality jewelry images. Now, your money is gone and you’re stuck with the same old problem: jewelry images that do not sell. What a painful experience!

Now what?

No need for big DSLR cameras.

No more light tents that get dusty after a week.

Say goodbye to tedious photography sessions. No more capturing multiple camera shots on your Digital SLR, then transferring it to your PC, and picking the right image.

GemLightox has heard all your woes and is out to end it in three simple steps!

The Advent of E-Commerce Ready Smartphone Photography

Step 1: Photography: GemLightbox

For this ring, we used our very own GemLightbox and an iPhone 6 for photography.

GemLightbox was designed for any jeweler to capture studio-quality jewelry images using nothing more than a smartphone. Its plug and play process tremendously reduces the amount of time you spend taking product photos, which gives you more opportunity to focus on other important aspects of your business.

The jewelry lightbox has been specifically designed for jewelry and smartphones. Smartphones appeared to be the most accessible device in achieving the quality you desire. After all, with more than 2 billion users worldwide and growing, who doesn’t know how to use a smartphone?!

If you’re one of those who barely make sales online, you’re one step closer to finding the oasis of sales in your currently barren e-commerce website without having to break the bank.

Your GemLightbox Studio-Quality Finish:

Beautiful metals!

Beautiful straight black lines followed by gradients that make the metals look shiny.
