Sarine develops new groundbreaking technologies

Includes Sarine Clarity™ and Sarine Color™ technologies

Sarine Technologies Ltd., has developed technologies of levels that it says will revolutionize the global diamond industry. It includes the first-of-its-kind, automated, objective and consistent Clarity and Color measurement and grading systems. The Sarine Clarity™ and Sarine Color™ technologies, which complete Sarine's scientific solutions focusing on the 4Cs and beyond in diamond quality, will serve to enhance confidence both in the individual diamond’s valuation throughout the entire diamond pipeline, and consumer trust at the point of sale.

Sarine's technology for grading the Clarity of polished diamonds is currently in advanced large-scale testing in India. Commercialization is expected towards the middle of 2017. Sarine Clarity™ will significantly simplify the Clarity grading process, and hence polished diamond sorting and sourcing. It initially provides accurate and objective mapping of the polished diamond's inclusions and flaws (birthmarks). It then applies a predefined set of rules and algorithms to determine the appropriate Clarity grade, using generally-accepted standardized Clarity grading terminology. Finally, the diamonds are sorted within the assigned Clarity grade into sub-categories according to pre-defined criteria, which enables diamond manufacturers and traders to ensure that each individual stone is optimally valued for its ideal sales market.

The company has also developed a new advanced, automated Sarine Color™ evaluation technology with lab-grade accuracy that is currently being tested in India, with commercialization scheduled for mid-2017. Manufacturers, gemological laboratories, and downstream players will be able to buy the new equipment and pay a recurring fee based on usage per carat, or make use of Sarine service centers. The Clarity technology can handle polished stones from 2 points to 10 carats - the vast majority of stones manufactured annually. This represents a significant improvement on the existing tedious manual evaluation processes, and will even allow for the evaluation of very small high quality stones, such as those preferred by high-end watchmakers. The initial Color system will be limited to polished stones of 20 points and up, but subsequent models will handle a range of stone sizes similar to the Clarity technology.

Sarine CEO Mr. Uzi Levami said that the company’s new innovations would ‘revolutionize the way the diamond industry and consumers perceive Clarity grading, and transform the polished sourcing and sorting process’. He further noted that, “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."
