Jewelry simulation or rendering are nothing new, but they are getting increased traction as online jewelry shopping gets a bigger and bigger market share. Rendering enables jewelers to create simulations for many products, and has several clear advantages: Bigger stock, and significant saving in both time and money.


What is Rendering?


3D rendering is a three-dimensional computer graphics process which enables to automatically convert 2D models to 3D models that look realistic.


The computerized process enables to create a simulation of any object, from homes to bridges, as well as products that do not yet exist. You could, for instance, simulate a non-existent building into a neighborhood, simulate a non-existent highway system in its surroundings, and even see how a certain ring would look on your finger – without ever touching it.

Rendering in Jewelry


The jewelry business has quickly taken to renderings. Rendering is highly effective in the design process, and enables jewelers to create models in 2D or 3D, and then produce realistic images of the piece from every angle with every type of gem or diamond, and in gold of every color. Jewelers can also choose the background of the image, including its color and texture. The entire process can be done in a few hours.


Advantages of Rendering


When creating jewelry collections, jewelry companies or designers use pricey raw materials. The jewel’s journey, from the design process to its purchase by the end client, is a long and expensive one. So, instead of creating a model out of gold and precious stones, photograph it and offer to sell it online, jewelers can now create previews of their jewelry designs by rendering, thereby saving hundreds of dollars in costs. Rendering enables them to create, for instance, a model of a piece made of

Jewelry Insurance & Engagement Ring Insurance

Who needs insurance for jewelry?

If you have an engagement ring or other valuable jewelry, a standalone jewelry insurance policy can protect it with specialized coverage.

While your homeowners, renters, or condo insurance may offer coverage for jewelry, you’d need to add a rider for the pieces you want insured, and making a jewelry claim could affect your entire property insurance rate. With a dedicated policy through Lavalier, you get specialized, “all risk” coverage, and your rate won’t automatically increase if you make a claim.

How does jewelry insurance work?

Jewelry insurance works by protecting you from the cost of your jewelry getting lost, damaged, or stolen. If that happens, you’ll make a claim and Lavalier will work with you and your preferred jeweler to repair or replace the piece.

You’ll have a chance to approve the repair or replacement before the claim is completed. Lavalier will pay your jeweler directly, minus your deductible (if you have one).

Learn more about how jewelry insurance works.

How much does it cost to insure jewelry?

Lavalier jewelry insurance starts at $68 per year, and it typically only costs 1–2% of your insured jewelry’s value. You’ll be able to choose your deductible and customize your rate according to your budget. Your deductible can be as low as $0 and as high as $25,000, depending on your preference and your jewelry’s value.

Lavalier offers discounts if you have a home safe or a home alarm, or if you store your jewelry in a bank vault or safe deposit box. There’s also a discount if you have a gemstone grading report.

Is jewelry insurance worth it?

Jewelry insurance can be worth it for the specialized service and coverage you get. It costs only a small fraction of the value of your

Analysis of a Spectacular 2021 for Diamonds – and a Sobering 2022

In a recently published report titled “2021 Pipeline: Lamenting the Natural Producers’ missed Income,” IDEX Online’s expert analysts Pranay Narvekar and Chaim Even Zohar claim that, following a “dream year” for the natural diamond industry in 2021, this year could prove to be a tipping point for lab-grown diamonds (LGDs).


 The authors begin by analyzing a “spectacular 2021.” 2021, they said, was “probably one of their best years in recent memory” for the diamond midstream and downstream sectors. Polished diamonds, for instance, increased by about 55% compared to 2020 to reach $22.1 billion “due to the bull-whip (or ripple) effect in the pipeline.” 


Meanwhile, The penetration of LGDs in the US market significantly increased in 2021 as more stores “started experimenting with keeping LGD stock,” including LGDs being bought in significant numbers by bridal customers.

In a later section, Narvekar and Even Zohar analyze how the pandemic benefited the sector, as governmental Covid-stimulus packages produced “tangible benefits for the jewelry sector” in the US. The analysts explain that, while many did suffer in 2020 and a stimulus was necessary, “the continued flow of stimulus in 2021 was the cherry on the cake, leading to the tremendous boost for the US economy.” This was especially true for durable goods – a category which includes jewelry” – as consumers “seem to have channeled their excess disposable incomes into purchasing hard assets […].”


In a section titled “Time to pay the bills?” Narvekar and Even Zohar say that “the 2021 party, however, seems to be ending […].” Climbing prices and inflation, coupled with higher interest rates, coupled by the diamond industry’s “usual problems of low growth and insufficient profitability,” have led to a projected growth of “not more than 1-2% for the year at a retail level.”

California Court Blames Sotheby’s For Loss of $4 Million in Diamonds

A federal judge in California has ruled that Sotheby’s may be responsible for the loss of 45 Vivid yellow diamonds worth $4 million, IDEX Online reports.


In 2019, M&L Financial, a consulting and brokerage firm based in Dallas, Texas, took the gems to Sotheby’s New York for auction on consignment. They told Sotheby’s that they were the exclusive owners of the diamonds but later, according to papers from the Superior Court of Los Angeles County, the auction house released the gems to another party without telling the company.


According to court papers, Jona Rechnitz, owner of Jadelle Jewelry and Diamonds in Beverly Hills, owed M&L “substantial” sums. As security for his debt, he transferred ownership of the diamonds to M&L on the understanding that he could later buy them back at a fixed price. Rechnitz proposed M&L list the diamonds with Sotheby’s. Supposedly, Sotheby’s later released the diamonds to a man who was picking them up on Rechnitz’s behalf. The auction house did not notify M&L. 


In its judgment, the California court reversed a judgment by a lower court and found against Sotheby’s. It said it was reversing “the judgment and remand for further proceedings regarding M&L’s breach of contract claim. We award costs to M&L.”
