Call econo light use metal halide lights and you will not need case
lights! They are amazing ! I have 15 in my store and color of
stones are great. Another benefit is thing look the same in or out
of the cases!
From another convertee.
They are the way to go. Good colour light and most importantly, not
hot at all. I was frying my jewellery with quartz halogen, even though
the colour of light is probably the best of all the lights available.
They not cheap and the take a little time to light up, but the last
a long time which offsets the cost.
One of the other light medium I have installed in my windows are
LED,s. The ones that work straight off the mains and are shaped like
a quartz halogen bulb. The colour is not the very best and they are (
for now) ferociously expensive, but the last a REALLY long time and
the give off no heat whatsoever. So the would be my light source of
choice were I to install them into a small enclosed space.
Lastly, quartz halogens chew power like nobodies business but with
LED,s this becomes negligible.
