Default Photo Light Tent?

I was asked to photograph some jewelry and thought a light tent might work. Does anyone have any experience as to what a good one would be and where to find one?

I have seen the do-it-yourself boxes and will keep it in mind but would like to know what my other options are.

WalMart carries them in my area...comes with the tent. two color background, two lights with stands, and a baby tripod for your camera.....costs around $70.00...but it folds up to a square with pockets on the outside for the lamps and tripod..easy to store, fast to set up....they are the same exact item as carried by Porter's Camera supply in Iowa for $89 or $99 dollars.

My DH got one from Wolf/Ritz Camera (a chain here in Texas that also has a web presence). It was under $100 and he's been very pleased with it--I'll ask him for more details tonight. . . .

I have this Smith Victor studio. My husband purchased this for me. I pulled it all out of the box and thought Ďover killí for what I had in mind but Iím very satisfied with it, I set it up permanently in a closet I seldom use.

The lights normally set on the shelves to each side of the table and shine into the side of the tent but I wanted to get them in the photo for you to see since the site photo is not a good one. You can judge the size from the A2 sized card in the tent.
If I'm trying to capture the cardstock texture for example, it works best with one light.

He isn't sure what site he ordered from but this is the price he paid.

Depending on the type of jewellery, using a glass table with overhead lights can give a good result. If it's necklaces, they can look better displayed on one of those model busts, rather than just flat on a surface. But if it's a one-off, you might not want to go to that expense. A guy in work takes photos of jewellery that his girlfriend sells, but I can't remember all the details of the set-up he uses.

Thanks Roxie and Sabrina. I think I will be provided with a neckline bust. The glass table is a good idea, I'll have to experiment and maybe try a mirror too.

Thanks for all the info, guys, I appreciate it.
