Sarine Clarity and Sarine Color are expected to be available commercially in 2017
Sarine Technologies, the jewlery technology company based in Hod Hasharon, Israel, has developed an automated diamond measurement and grading system.
Sarine Clarity, which determines clarity grading, and Sarine Color, which evaluates color with lab-grade accuracy, will “enhance confidence both in the individual diamond’s valuation throughout the entire diamond pipeline, and consumer trust at the point of sale,” according to a release.
The technologies are currently being tested large-scale in India and are expected to be commercially available in mid-2017. Manufacturers, gem labs, and other downstream players will be able to buy the equipment and pay a fee based on usage.
“Once again, Sarine introduces groundbreaking technological innovation into the global diamond industry—technology that will revolutionize the way the diamond industry and consumers perceive clarity grading, and transform the polished sourcing and sorting process,” said Sarine CEO Uzi Levami in a statement. “With this breakthrough from the Start-Up Nation, we have solved the 4Cs puzzle and more, providing innovative solutions for clarity, color, and cut, as well as light performance and other parameters. Technological standardization translates into greater credibility for the industry and increased trust for the diamond consumer.”
