Thank you for the replies, they are very helpful!

For photographing jewelry, neither a Cocoon (I have the original Plume, ltd. Cocoon that Red Wing made.) or a lighting tent is suitable. You need to really have very precise control of light and no diffusion box will give you that.

Ellis, how would you find the difference between a light tent and a cacoon?

It seems that the cacoon has a more limited space wise (hard to hang, impossible to use gobo inside) unlike a light tent,

is there any benefits to the cacoon that i am not aware of?

(p.s i'm planing to photograph glasses as well)

Thank you all!
