Press Release:  Kay’s Fine Jewelry, a premier family-run jeweler with eight  stores in the Caribbean Islands and South Carolina  adopted ImaGem’s GL3200 Grader machine and VeriGem machine. The main objective behind incorporating ImaGem technology was to support business expansion and growth.

“We were eager to grow our diamond wholesale business and selected ImaGem’s GL3200 Grader for color, fluorescence and proportion grading and VeriGem machine for digital fingerprinting and verification. With GL3200 Grader, we have the ability to double check the color and fluorescence of all diamonds we are buying and be sure of our purchases," said Mr. Deepak Chugani,  a partner at Kays Fine Jewelry. “Using the VeriGem machine, we are now fingerprinting all diamonds in our inventory and can easily verify them upon return. This has helped us to grow our business with confidence.”

The GL3200 Grader machine is used for grading loose diamonds that fall in the D to Z categories, fancy color diamonds and diamonds with secondary hues. The machine grades color, fluorescence, light behavior, proportions, symmetry and alignment in under four minutes per stone. It can process about 120 diamonds in an eight-hour shift. With the GL3200 Grader, accurate grading results are available not in weeks or months, but in just minutes!

The VeriGem® machine  is used for measuring light behavior in diamonds and digital fingerprinting and verification. For light behavior grading, the VeriGem measures brilliance, sparkle and intensity in under 40 seconds and then prints a certificate right on the spot. Once a diamond is fingerprinted by the machine, its identity can be verified to ensure that it has not been switched during a transaction. This function is very useful for inventory management, memo transactions, jewelry manufacturing and law enforcement programs.

“Kays Fine Jewelry is ImaGem’s first customer in the Caribbean Islands and we are pleased to announce our business relationship with them. They have also placed an order for ImaGem’s GL5200 Clarity machine. With the Grader, VeriGem and Clarity machine, they will have a Lab Express Service available to them for buying and evaluating diamonds that they sell to customers. The Lab Express Service installation brings high quality diamond grading services with proof of measurements to clients on-site. Based on flurry of inquiries, we expect many more installations of Lab Express Service throughout the world this year,” said Dr. Lalit K. Aggarwal, the chairman and founder of ImaGem Inc.
