FROM ROUGH TO POLISHED
From its ancient origin deep within the earth, to the mine surface, to the jewelry store, the journey of a diamond is exotic, complex and fascinating. At every stage – mapping, planning, cutting and polishing – Sarine’s advanced technologies are used to ensure the gemologist achieves the most valuable polished diamond. Now, allowing ethically and sustainability-minded consumers can trace the rough stone’s country of origin through every stage to becoming a beautiful polished diamond, in a revolutionary visual display – Sarine Diamond Journey™ Digital report.
Every diamond has a unique origin that begins millions of years ago. Sourced from deep within the earth, each rough diamond goes on a unique journey from the mine to the craftsman’s hand on its way to becoming a beautiful finished jewel. Sarine’s advanced technologies offer full traceability of a diamond’s origin, giving retailers a powerful tool for driving sales among today’s ethically-minded consumers.
Just like a human fingerprint, every rough diamond has an original character 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 create a wealth of cutting plans. This allows the planner to cut and craft the ideal diamond from the original rough stone.
There are infinite ways to cut and polish a rough diamond. Depending on its origin, size, birthmarks, and features, the planner must decide upon the best cutting plan for the rough diamond to bring out its latent beauty, light and sparkle. Using advanced planning technology, Sarine’s experts can determine the optimal cutting plan to achieve the perfect cut.
Creating the finished diamond, the hardest material on earth, requires painstaking care and craftsmanship. Sarine’s advanced laser technology ensures the diamond is sawed correctly, down to miniscule levels of precision. 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 sawed to the most exacting standards of precision.
A long way from its geological origins, polishing represents the final stop in the naturally-sourced diamond’s journey to becoming an exquisite finished gem. Diamond polishing requires rare expertise, years of experience and a process of constant refinement. Throughout this painstaking process, the diamond is periodically scanned with the DiaMension® HD technology, the world’s most advanced diamond measurement and analysis software, to ensure that the diamond cutter is adhering to the cutting plan. Once the beautiful polished diamond emerges, it undergoes a final scan with DiaMension HD, verifying the perfection of every facet and detail of the finished diamond.
