Proper store light can attract more customers to all establishments, help sell more product and strengthen a store's image. Many designers claim that the most important feature of a store's design can be its lighting. Unfortunately, lighting is often the most neglected component of store design.

When choosing lighting for all stores or monitors, there are some ideas to consider.

Ceiling height: The height of a store's roof is one of the most important factors that goes into a plan to illuminate a jewelry store so that the goods look spectacular. As the light source moves farther away from the goods, the power and intensity of light decreases. Stores with higher ceilings (over 9 & # 39;) face some lighting challenges. Shops with ceilings that are longer must either use more lights that are more closely spaced to illuminate a showcase or bring the light source closer by dropping a track or using a pendant.

Color: The color of the light is measured in Kelvin (temperature). The higher the temperature (Kelvin), the cooler reads the light of the light and the lower the temperature, the hotter the color becomes. For example, a light that is 3000K can be a warmer color and a light that is 4000K would be a colder light. When the temperature of the light becomes too high (over 4200 k), the color of the light begins to take a blue quality. Light in the 5500K to 6500K will look "blue" in the eye.

Bulb Life / Quality: How long a lamp is expected to last is based on its "nominal life". The better light bulbs have a nominal life of over 10,000 hours. The quality of a light bulb can also be measured with its CRI (Color Rendition Index). The higher the CRI of a light bulb, the better the quality of the light it will be. CRI numbers over 80 represent a very high light quality. CRI numbers over 90 represent an exemplary light quality.

The power of light: The power of a light bulb is measured in the lumen. The amount of light generated is measured in Lux or, more commonly, in footlight ("fc"). The higher the lumen, the higher the amount of footlight that will be generated by the bulb.

Different light sources: There are three main sources of light used in jewelry stores. They are (1) Ceramic Metal Halide (2) Halogen (3) Fluorescent. LED technology is being used more and more but is still far behind the three most important ones. The best source of lighting for jewelry is still Ceramic Metal Halide. This depends on its properties. They are energy efficient, powerful (lumen over 6000), come in warm and cold colors (3000K to 4200K) have excellent CRI (over 80 and in most cases over 90 CRI) and can provide headlights that can exceed 400. Halogens are hot, has a lower CRI, does not retain its color over the life of the lamp and is about a quarter to a third of the power of a ceramic metal halide. Fluorescents are energy efficient but do not project enough power to be useful in a jewelry store when it comes to shining goods.

LED lights are "buzz" but they have limitations and problems. LED technology is constantly changing. An LED luminaire you buy today is (as in the case of a personal computer) outdated within one year. Keeping a consistent color on the LED lamp over time can be problematic due to the changes in LED technology. LED lights can make jewelry look inside the showcase but are not strong enough to be placed over the case where the sale is actually made. Due to this limitation, another light source is required above the display, such as ceramic metal halide or halogen. This is where the problems arise. What happens is that there are two different light sources, which is why some jewelry looks different. As an example ... a customer sees a piece of jewelry inside a showcase lit by an LED strip. They ask the seller to take it out to see it. It is extracted and is now illuminated over the glass by a different light source, which makes the piece look different. The customer starts to wonder if the lighting inside the case is to "trick" them into believing that jewelry looks good. Since the sale is completed on the "glass" with a light source that makes the jewelry the same inside the case as it does above, the case is crucial for closing a sale.


(1) Most designers who understand the correct way to light a jewelry store tell you that you are "for diamonds" and the rest of your items will survive doing well and if you shine for gold, your diamonds will die. Diamonds require a clear white light that gives enough power to make them sparkle. Diamonds should be displayed under lights that are in the series 4000-4200K. This gives a beautiful white color that ends with taking on blue color qualities. Gold and warmer colored stones look best during warmer colored candles 3000K to 3500K. But if a store will use a single light color throughout its gift spaces, the adage of "lighting for diamonds" is the way to go.

(2) Make sure the lighting is powerful enough to produce at least 200fc. Having light that is less than 200 fc is universally agreed to be lower than the smallest amount of light to properly light jewelry, especially diamonds. Readings of between 200 and 400fc are the optimum amount of light power over a showcase depending on the business owner's personal preference for how much light they think is best.

(3) Ambient light or general lighting is warmer and less powerful than the lighting over the display. The human eye is attracted to brighter light. If the general lighting in a store has the same color and power as the display, there will be nothing to attract the customers to the gift rooms and the deal will have a cold, non-inviting feel to it. Because the general (ambient) lighting is less powerful (about 75fc) and a warmer color (between 2500 and 300K), the lighting over the goods will stand out and attract the customer to the falls.

(4) When illuminating a window screen that has natural sunlight shining in, it uses twice as much light as would normally be used over a showcase to counteract the sun's power.

When upgrading lighting, the tendency is usually a change from halogen technology. Customers using Halogen and switching to ceramic metal halide will notice an immediate difference in the quality and power of light, reducing heat and the remarkable change it makes to their goods.

Things to consider when choosing the type of lighting:

Track: This provides the most versatility, as fixtures can be moved and relocated with ease. If goods are moved from department store to bag or gift space, the moved track lighting gives the shop owner most of the options.

recessed: This gives the best looking appearance. The limitations are that the store owner will be limited in their ability to add or reduce the light as well as limitations with moving goods and gift spaces around the store. When a built-in light has been installed, the cost of adding or removing lighting becomes a great expense, as the electricians need to remove / move the lighting and the problems of repairing the holes in the ceiling where the recess mount is installed.

pendants: Pendants are a great way to get a light source closer to the ceiling where the ceilings are high and the shop owners do not want to spend the money needed to add additional light to compensate for the high ceiling.

Inside the Showcase Lighting: Having lighting inside a showcase can really add sparkle and glitter to your jewelry. The best lighting for inside a case is LED. Be careful when selecting the LED to ensure that the color of the light is not blue (5500K = color range). Having a color that shines on your goods in the bag and another color that shines on your goods above the case has the real potential to lose a sale. Stores do not want their customers to be attracted to how jewelry and diamonds look inside just to make it look different on the glass where sales are actually closed. Customers will think that stores are trying to trick them by using good lighting.

Girls, admit it or not, like to be eaten down there. It is rarely to find a girl who does not like to get her head when she has experienced it and has been really happy about it. If she had bad experience with it, however, she might have a little trouble doing the act again. That's why you need to know how to do it properly to satisfy your girl and get her to ask you to do it over and over again. So let's learn to eat a girl perfectly.

Unlike boys, girls are more difficult to please and stimulate. With just a glimpse of a cleavage, a zipper over jeans, legs to see, a boy can become difficult automatically. This is not the case for most females. You have to stimulate them, light them and build their fires. However, the only good thing is when you have built up the fire, they last longer than men.

Eating her down there is one of the nicest things you can do for her, to help her achieve climax, without actually having intercourse with her. Otherwise known as cunnilingus, eating her down there is considered an outercourse, which means that no real penetration of sexual organs is involved. However, there is nothing to deny the fact that it is one of the nicest things a woman can experience sexually.

Whether you prepare her for the actual coitus or if you just want her to feel good, you need to make sure that when you give her head, it's not that you measure her very sensitive parts. You want to bring her pleasure, not pain. Although some girls would find it harder than most, girls would prefer to be dirty and tender in general. When the excitement intensifies, however, you can change the rhythm to faster and with more wild abandon than when you first start.

When you eat a girl, you do not go straight down on her and lick her high with a wild and wild abandonment. You have to get her in the right mood, so she wouldn't feel stuck and tense when you start nibbling her down there. The right prelude is the key to this. Let her relax, kiss her and stroke her erogenous zones. You should tease her by nibbling her neck, sucking on her nipples, stroking her thighs with your lips and leaving a flaming trace of kissing from her navel down to her high, just before her clit focuses on leaving kisses with alternating sucking on her legs and thighs before you actually place your mouth in front of her love channel.

You can blow warm breaths directly into her vagina to increase her sexual arousal. By licking her clit with the tip of her tongue and sliding her slit and kissing her labia, she would make her ask you to do it to her, instantly lick and suck in her vagina while pressing the tongue inside, just like in real coitus.

If you want to make your woman happy and satisfied, you must always follow her responses to what you do for her. If she bumps and squirming, she definitely likes what you do with you. But if she shoots at you and seems to close her legs, it's probably because she might feel hurt or that it has been too much on her clitoris, which makes her uncomfortable. The key to making her happy is to always be on the lookout for her reactions. You can then continue or change your strategy based on such reactions.
