A 10X triplet magnifying loupe is a great choice for viewing jewelry, and is the type of loupe used by jewelry professionals to grade diamonds and other gemstones. Anything visible through a more powerful loupe, while interesting, isn’t included on a grading report.

Unless experienced, try to look for a magnifying loupe with black framing around the lens, because black eliminates reflections that can alter the color of the object you are viewing.
