The future of jewelry retailing – Third Dimension Labs wants to advise its customers with state-of-the-art technology. In close cooperation with jewelers and jewelry manufacturers, Third Dimension Labs created gemkit, a platform for 3D jewelry visualization. redPlant developed top quality 3D jewelry models for the application that are based on the real items.

The configurator was created in WebGL, so it runs in all commonly used web browsers. It can be used on tablets as well as PCs, so it offers a cross-platform opportunity to extend jewelry sales.


Rings and their materials were realistically visualized. The desired configuration can be zoomed and rotated individually.

Market Place

The jewelry platform was launched at the Inhorgenta 2016 in Munich. Finishing the platform by that date required consistent coordination with gemkit and regular adjustments.
