Press Release: For the first time, ImaGem will present its Grader and Clarity machines to the diamond community at the JCK Vegas show to be held from June 4 to June 7, 2010. These specialized instruments, backed by a patented database system, provide accurate and repeatable grading. They are the central elements of ImaGem’s concept of an “On-Site Lab” that can be set up in a space of 100 square feet anywhere in the world. Members of the trade can see a live demonstration at ImaGem’s booth number 61306 in the ETS Pavilion on Level 1.
“Diamond grading as practiced today is antiquated — it is labor-intensive, inefficient, nonrepeatable and has placed a huge financial burden on the industry. The subjectivity in grading has continued to create doubt in the entire diamond market," said Dr. Lalit K. Aggarwal, the chairman and founder of ImaGem Inc. "Conservative estimates place this cost upwards of several hundred million dollars a year worldwide. Members of the trade are aware of these costs, but are afraid of switching because of the unknown and possible backlash from the industry.
"After several years of use, ImaGem systems have proven their reliability and value in the market place. We expect manufacturers, labs and retailers to increasingly switch to ImaGem system that guarantees grading, reduces the cost of grading, creates consumer confidence and provides new and exciting business opportunities," said Dr. Aggarwal.
The GL 3100 Grader grades loose diamonds for color, fluorescence, light behavior, proportions, symmetry and more. The GL 5100 Clarity machine is used to map inclusions in rough and polished diamonds.
ImaGem invites members of the industry to live demonstrations of this equipment. Also shown will be light behavior grading, fingerprinting and video capture technology.
