My jewelry cases have installed lights which run on a transformer.
Unfortunately the transformer on one of the cases is no longer
working. The company which made the lights is no longer in business.
I checked around about getting another transformer and was
discouraged by an electrician about getting one that would work with
the system I have. Therefore, I need to get new lights, definitely
without a transformer. I would just plug it into my power strip,
which goes to an electrical outlet. Have seen some fluorescent ones
which I can screw onto the wood frame of my cases. However, as, in
addition to the built in lights I also use halogen lights which I
clamp onto the outside of the frame of my case. My question is, can I
use both fluorescent and halogen, or would the colors of my gemstones
be adversely affected? I can’t use halogen inside the case because of
the heat generated, and the low voltage ones do not come in a strip
to be mounted inside my case.
Thanks for your suggestions. Alma
