Comparing background removers: Photoroom vs Removebg

We tested our background and Removebg's to see which would deliver the most accurate results.
The original image
We used a sample image of a necklace because of the complexity involved in removing and replacing backgrounds on an object with gaps.
Photoroom result
We accurately removed and replaced the original background with a Photoroom generated white background.
Removebg result
The Removebg generated background does not maintain the sharp contrast between the object and the background from the original. It misses accurately maintaining of the intricacy and structure of the necklace loops.
