Here are some of our favorite photos of jewels from National Geographic's archives. Some of the jewels are still rough stones, barely out of the ground; others have been passed from hand to hand for decades. They all captivate—even the fake ones (see if you can spot them).
Jewelry Photography Quick-eGuide that summarizes and shows you the step-by-step process on how to take photos of jewelry.
We've taken our experience in the jewelry photography industry, our expert photographers' knowledge, our existing jewelry photography tips content (of this page) and our (Free PDF download) to construct this guide. The goal of our Quick-eGuide is to teach you how to take high quality photos of jewelry in an easy to understand step-by-step process. Once you are done photographing, you can use your photos to post in the internet (blogs, websites, for eBay, e-newsletters, e-commerce online stores, ), or for print (catalogs, brochures, postcards, newsletters, booklets, etc).
