I have some jewellery that I want to sell on eBay but I'm having problems getting a real clear picture. How do I photograph it so I can bring out all of the detail? and does anyone have any tips for selling things like this on eBay because I haven't sold that type of thing before?

I suggest you buy something like the photography tent. I have bought such kind of product. It can be folded. And you can put your jewelery inside the photography tent, and then you can take very nice photos for the jewelery. It works very well outside. I love china

Thanks that is great. I've just been looking at some photography tents and I've found a kit which come with all the lighting and a tripod for £30 so I'll be buying that I think. Thanks again for the advice.

Ebay is safe. As long as you will only ship the item on the exact name and shipping address of the buyer on his/her paypal account. Make sure you will keep the tracking number just incase the seller file a dispute or chargeback. So you will not lose your hard earned money and your account will not be frozen.

Thanks. I'll bear that in mind and make sure I send it recorded so I can get a tracking number for anything I post.

If your camera has a macro setting, use the macro as you'll be able to take closeups in greater detail. I prefer to photograph my jewelry in natural light. I don't want the sun directly on the piece, but I choose a room in my house that is bright, and adjust the display piece to take away as much of the shadow as possible. There are some very good videos on YouTube showing how to create a light box (or shadow box)and how to position lights to create a natural light look for your photos. Showing clear images, and using as much description of the piece in your listing should help you find buyers for your jewelry. If the piece has sterling silver, make mention of that. Talk about the colors, size of the piece, etc. The more info you share with the potential buyer, the better your chance of selling the piece. Good luck!
