LET’S SEE ALL THE STAGES DIAMONDS ARE PASSING
Why do humans prize diamonds above all other stones? Perhaps it’s the incredible geological story of their origin, their provenance, some 3 billion years ago, deep beneath the Earth’s surface, as intense pressure and temperature compressed ordinary carbon into the hardest crystals in nature. then these stones were brought to the surface by cataclysmic volcanic activity. This explains why no two natural diamonds are alike. And why, it takes highly sophisticated mining methods and much time to extract rough diamonds.
Sarine Diamond Journey™ Traceability begins with a 3D scanning procedure, done by the miner, to create a verifiable image of the physical diamond and a definitive link to its digital report. This enables the creation of an unbroken chain of authentication at every stage of the diamond’s journey – from rough to rough, rough to polished, polished to report. Securely stored in the cloud, this data provides the foundation of true end-to-end Traceability.
Just like a newborn, we give every rough diamond emerging from the mine its own Birth Registration ID. At the mine each rough stone is digitally scanned, creating a unique 3D model. Other important identifying data, such as country of origin, is registered and the data is uploaded to Sarine’s secure cloud based system.
Sarine Diamond Journey™ Traceability continues at the manufacturer with Rough Verification. After being traded across countries and continents, upon arrival at the polisher’s facilities each rough stone is scanned again. Sarine’s unique verification algorithm matches the rough stone to what was initially registered by the producer. Once the match is ascertained, the stone is registered with its new owner. In the case of a negative match, the manufacturer is alerted instantly.
Just like a human fingerprint, every rough diamond has unique characteristics that can be determined using Sarine’s advanced diamond mapping technology. For instance, Sarine Galaxy® imaging scans the rough diamond to reveal its internal birthmarks, DiaExpert® maps the diamond’s external surface, and Sarine Advisor® software analyzes the rough diamond to explore the polished diamond’s aesthetic and financial value potential.
There are infinite ways to cut and polish a rough diamond. Depending on its origin, size, birthmarks, and features, the expert must decide upon the best cutting plan for the rough diamond to bring out its latent beauty, and value. Using Sarine’s planning technology, the optimal cutting plan is determined to achieve the perfect cut.
When the polished plan is finalized, Sarine Diamond Journey™ Traceability captures multiple images and documentary information pertaining to the expected transition process from rough to planned polished.
Creating the finished diamond from the hardest material on earth requires painstaking care and craftsmanship. Sarine’s Quazer® is a leading choice for high quality laser sawing. This delicate procedure requires skill, patience and the most advanced technology to ensure the natural diamond is sawn to the most exacting standards of precision.
Polishing represents the final stage in the naturally-sourced diamond’s journey in becoming an exquisite finished gem. The diamond is periodically scanned with the DiaMension® HD technology, to ensure that the diamond cutter is adhering to the cutting plan.
Once polishing is complete, the polished stone is matched against previously documented actual and expected features for validation. The ID is once again registered by the manufacturer.
Sarine Diamond Journey™ Traceability follows the stone to Sarine’s AI Grading. Powered by artificial intelligence derived technologies and years of in-depth research, AI Grading overcomes the inconsistencies of human observation to deliver grading results that set a new standard in accuracy, consistency and repeatability, opening up more confidence-building methods to communicate a diamond’s true value to the consumer.
The Polished Validation stage verifies the stone’s ID by matching its various properties – such as its polish proportions, inclusions, and additional unique features – to the properties registered during the final plan stage. This verifies the polished stone is indeed derived from the specific rough.
Sarine Diamond Journey™ Traceability is culminates with the generation of a digital or printed Diamond Journey™ report, providing consumers a fascinating visual adventure that depicts the diamond’s unique journey from rough stone through every processing stage to becoming a beautiful polished gem. For retailers, Diamond Journey™ reports enable an exciting new way to engage buyers with the amazing story of their diamond.
In the retail store at the point of purchase, TruMatch™ offers retailers an additional opportunity to offer consumers a way to validate their polished diamond, further enhancing trust and confidence in their purchase. Mounted or loose stones are placed on the TruMatch™ system and validated using a matrix and unique diamond fingerprint inscribed on the diamond’s girdle and matched to data in the Sarine cloud.
