While we are all a part of the internet generation, I would like to admit that I haven’t yet found comfort in shopping for jewellery online. I’m pretty sure that there are people who are like me and while we utilise the internet well, this is one aspect wherein we still prefer the traditional method of commerce.

For me this is primarily because of two reasons – not being able to judge the size of an ornament even with a 360 degree view, and, not knowing what would look good on me.

Thus, when I heard about CaratLane coming out with a Virtual Jewellery Try On app, I was intrigued.

I quickly put together a black on black look because I wanted my huge gold earrings to be the centre of my outfit (since it was a jewellery event). I finished it off with a red metal clutch and some red lip color to go with the whole look.

Upon arrival, a talk by Mithun Sacheti (Co-founder & CEO, CaratLane) gave a better idea of what the CaratLane App is all about.

I tried it myself and realised that this is one amazing app that can actually make buying jewellery online very smooth and easy. Here is what it does:

Step 1: Open the app and make sure that the dotted circle perfectly outlines your face.

Step 2: Slowly turn your face to the left.

Step 3: Now turn your face to the right.

You are now ready to choose from thousands of earrings from their collection and virtually try them on and see how they look on you.

Not just this, you may also save the look and share it with your friends on any social media platform for a second opinion.

All you need to do is make sure that you are not wearing any earrings while you save your look.

CaratLane has taken online shopping to the next level, it definitely is the future of jewellery shopping!
