Stunning, HD Photos of Diamond Rings, Pictures of Bracelets and Fine Jewellery
When it comes to selling jewelry online there’s no greater asset that the perfect product shot. Compare a gorgeously high-definition image of gold glistening under rich, full light to a dull, lifeless bracelet sitting on a table. The two images can showcase the exact same product - but without truly putting the beauty of the products on display - potentials buyers might move on.
That’s why great imagery is so important when selling jewellery. With our database of stunning jewelry photos - you can free yourself of the hassle of getting great product shots. All of our photos are high-definition and free to download for your next project or business venture.
Tips for Taking Your Own Photos of Jewelry
For some business owners, the uniqueness of their pieces prevents them from being able to use stock photo imagery. With so many online merchants breaking into the emerging craft/DIY jewellery market, it’s just not possible to use stock images.
If you’re selling your own homemade jewelry - here are some tips to get the best shots of your beautiful products:
1. Focus on the Diamond, Gemstone or Watch Centerpiece
When photographing jewellery, it’s best to have your camera in “spot focus” mode which emphasizes the main subject and allows it to stand out from the background. When taking a shot of a diamond ring or rhinestone necklace - it’s best to have the most focus and clarity on the center of the piece so that it stands out from the rest of the product.
2. Gold Shimmers Under Soft Light
Normally soft (or “diffused”) lighting works best for shooting gold, diamond, silver and other glistening materials. On-camera flash never works particularly well with jewelly because it’s usually too bright at a close distance and can create a jarring mesh of unwanted brights spots and shadows. It’s best to use continuous lighting when photographing jewellery and to take notices of what level of lighting provides the best “shimmer” for the products.
3. Shoot Rings Close
This trues of all jewelry but especially true of diamond rings. You want to shoot from a close angle (about a foot away) - turned down slightly. This sort of angle will compliment your soft lighting and spot-focus and give you an image that sharpy catches the centre of your product.
4. Use a Tripod for Effective Jewelry Photography
A tripod or some form of camera support is a must when photographing jewellery. The reason is because when you’re this focused in on the image - even the slightest movements can cause the image to blur. A blurry image can come off as careless to your audience and will result in lost sales.
