I am a bench jeweler.

of money and I think that the system will get better and cheaper in the
Let me just play the “Devil’s Advocate” for a moment. If the jeweler in
the back room can’t make the item to look like the counter help person’s

It seems to me that giving someone a color picture of the jewelry item
they are suppose to get and then giving them the actual item, and the two

Now with that off my chest, I must say that the ability to capture
images of a customer’s ring and through simple manipulation create
matching earrings and bracelets and pendants or broaches or toe rings or
belly button rings, etc., well it’s just too cool.
I understand that one can lease the system for around $300.00 a month.
