Sarine Technologies Ltd has entered into a strategic cooperation with Tiffany & Co., with the purpose to develop a new automated system for the grading of a polished diamond’s symmetry to new standards to be set by Tiffany.

Previously the facet symmetry features of a polished diamond were manually evaluated by gemologists using microscopes and could not be determined by any existing device. In 2011, Tiffany approached Sarine with a challenge to measure the features with unprecedented high accuracy.

Sarine developed the DiaMension™ Axiom, after extensive research, and based on advanced video imagery analysis using microscopic magnification. The device ascertains a polished diamond’s proportions and symmetry and sets a new bar for polished diamond analysis and grading. Most minute diamond features, including facet junctions, facet misalignment and facet distortions, key to the symmetry grade can be measured with it. The patent pending technology is applicable for round and fancy shaped polished diamonds. It is anticipated that the resulting high accuracy qualification of the stone will enable manufacturers to attain, and gemological institutes to verify, new levels of quality.

Andy Hart, Tiffany’s Senior Vice President of Manufacturing, Diamonds & Gemstones, said, “This new technology developed by Sarine will enable the Tiffany Gemological Laboratory to enhance its abilities to objectively, consistently, and efficiently measure and uphold our demanding symmetry standard which is critical to ensuring Tiffany presents only the most beautiful diamonds to our customers.”

Uzi Levami, CEO of Sarine Technologies, said, "We were indeed fortunate to benefit from our collaboration with Tiffany’s gemologists, who contributed their unmatched expertise to the endeavor. Sarine will continue to uncompromisingly push the envelope with innovative breakthrough technological solutions to the benefit of our industry and all its stakeholders – from miners to consumers".
