The BelOMO 15x Triplet Loupe Magnifier has a viewing area of 0.38″ (9mm). The large 12.7mm (.5″) 3 elements lens making up this achromatic triplet gathers lots of light to provide a bright, clear, and color correct view. The 15x power magnification provides strong magnification with a fair depth of field ratio. The 15x magnification is much stronger than the most popular 10x power but not as strong as the BelOMO 20x Quadruplet Loupe Magnifier. But be sure you need this much magnification. The housing and cover have a matte black finish for gem grading. Belarusian Optical and Mechanical Association (BelOMA), makers of telescopes, camera lenses, and other optical components manufactures these loupes. The loupes are optical quality lenses, each one inspected and certified just like a camera lens, that stand on their own against the higher priced competition. BelOMO loupes are assembled using screws rather than rivets which allows them to be adjusted. Make sure your authorized BelOMO loupe dealer custom treats the screws to prevent them from working loose with normal usage. Don’t be fooled by cheap loupes selling for nearly the same price of MORE! Many don’t even tell the manufacturer. Why? Because they’re cheap imports from China, Japan, Taiwan or elsewhere which typically cost less than a dollar at import. If you don’t know the manufacturer how can you know the quality? Triplet means three lenses made of different types of optical glass bonded together and designed that, together, they straighten out the light that comes into the front of the loupe lens so that it’s the same when it leaves. Cheap import triplets are just three identical pieces of glass, not bonded, that distort the image. Some are just a single piece of plain glass with magnification far less than marked. 18 month warranty on BelOMO magnifiers sold by authorized US dealers.
