The key USP of the CaratLane app is the 3D Virtual jewellery Try-on feature where the app takes a video of the user and then using 3D imaging technologies, generates a 3D view of the customer wearing CaratLane earrings. The user can swipe to look at her face from one side to the other to get an idea of how she looks wearing those earrings. Customers can make a purchase through COD, credit card, debit card and net banking. Moreover, they can request for a home trial of a product they like. They can also share a photo of themselves trying on earrings, with their friends on WhatsApp, Facebook etc. CaratLane expects the App to contribute 30 to 40 per cent of its overall business within the next six months.

    large amount of work? I have virtually no understanding of computer programming
    but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, should you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
