 Sarine Technologies is expanding its signature diamond report to include the 4Cs, which it will determine through its own automated grading tools, the company announced Monday.

The standard Sarine Profile report provides information on a diamond’s light performance and the quality of its hearts-and-arrows pattern, and offers advanced 3D diamond imaging. However, the new one will include the diamond’s cut, color, clarity and carat weight, making the digital service a valid grading report, the Israel-based diamond technology firm explained.

To get that data, the company will grade the diamonds using its Sarine Clarity and Sarine Color machines — which it unveiled last year — as well as its Diamension HD cut-grading device and Sarine Light light-performance tool. The former two can automatically measure a diamond’s clarity and color, a task usually performed by trained gemologists.

With its new offering, Sarine is claiming it can deliver an unmatched quality of diamond grading with less subjectivity and fewer human errors, it said, adding that the move would raise confidence among buyers and industry members.

“The days of dry, technical, non-intuitive diamond reports are coming to an end,” said CEO David Block. “Sarine’s new reports can provide consumers with a more reliable and coherent way to buy diamonds and diamond jewelry, and can support the entire diamond pipeline with a new level of accuracy, objectivity and repeatability.”

The advanced 4Cs Sarine Profile will also optionally include information on whether the diamond is synthetic or treated, the company added. The new report will be available either on its own or in combination with the original Sarine Profile, which the company will continue to provide in its current format as well.

“Our new services include the world’s first automated measurement and grading of all the 4Cs and light performance, diamond verification, interactive digital reports, and a host of revolutionary new approaches to gemological research that add layer upon layer of depth and power to the diamond story,” Block declared.

The company is collaborating with Swiss gemological lab GGTL Laboratories on the technology. The two companies will work to continue validating the automated grading machines through ongoing research.

Sarine declined to provide further details about the new service, saying it would release additional information during the upcoming Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, which begins on September 13.
