Capturing the brilliance and luster of a gemstone in a still photograph is not an easy task. Gems reflect light best when they are moving. Capturing the color accurately seems like it should be easier, but in fact it is not. Gemstone color changes in different kinds of light, and many gems are pleochroic, meaning they exhibit different colors when viewed from different angles.
We have taken hundreds of thousands of gem photographs over the years, and are pleased to share photos of some of our finer gems with gem lovers everywhere.
