Loupes are critical tools for jewelers, to inspect closely during the finishing process or for closeup views of gemstones. Headband magnifiers are a great way to boost vision for working on small areas or when prescription glasses just don't do enough! They can be worn over glasses, and have interchangeable lenses to suit different needs. Good bright color balanced lighting also makes a big difference, especially when working with colored stones.


Need some advice about picking out a loupe or magnifier? Visit the 'Tips' section and read up on available magnifiers and lights. Also check your prescription for glasses, if it's been more than two years go for a check up!

Metalsmiths who specialize in stone setting and engraving often use magnification without thinking about it! It's just a fact of life for high-detail/ small-size jobs.
