The Jewellers’ Choice

Vision Engineering’s Mantis family of ergonomic stereo microscopes bridges the gap between the bench magnifier and the high powered microscope, thanks to a craftsman-friendly viewing head. All of the tasks performed in a jewellery workshop – repairs, assembly, polishing, repairs, engraving, and more – are transformed, with an ease of use which make Mantis the preferred microscope of jewellers around the world.

Precision craftsmanship

With a Mantis eyepiece-less stereo microscope, gold and silversmiths, jewellery artisans and designers of handcrafted rings, brooches, necklaces, tiaras and other one-of-a-kind adornments can work in greater comfort and with new-found efficiency. The relaxed and natural viewing posture and superb 3D imaging let you work for longer and with fewer breaks, taking your creativity and craftsmanship to new levels.

Effortless inspection

Unlike ordinary microscopes, Mantis has a large depth of field and depth of focus, allowing you to view the whole subject at once rather than having to adjust either it or the microscope. Shadow-free, true color LED illumination, and superb optics with a magnification range of 2x to 20x makes it ideal for inspecting stones for inclusions, color and contrast, for identifying stones that are overly heated and treated, and for finding defects in the clips.


Fine engraving

The long working distance and plenty of space for tools make it easy to perform even the finest engraving, extending your creative horizons. Hand-eye co-ordination with Mantis is far easier and you can work for longer periods in greater comfort.

Accurate restoration

When you need maximum precision and there are no second chances, Mantis simplifies the accurate restoration of precious artifacts. The operator-friendly ergonomic design, true-to-life 3D view, large depths of field and focus, natural hand-eye co-ordination and shadow-free true color illumination, all work together to make every restoration easier.
