In manual grading, graders have differences in the way they see diamonds and how they interpret what they see. There is also the natural issue of subjectivity when individuals face fatigue and overwork. As a result, the diamond market has always searched for the most accurate and consistent grading service available. 

Without technology, gem labs have added operational layers to minimize the inconsistencies, for example, having several gemologists grading each diamond. While this solution narrowed the gaps, they are still significant.

In contrast, Sarine’s AI in-house grading solution, Sarine eGrading™, is based on machine learning, accurate detection, and generation of quality raw data that provides a far more reliable, consistent and sustainable solution at any given time.  

Ultimately, grading directly during the production phase shortens the diamond supply chain, removes costly outsourcing of diamond grading and makes the diamond pipeline more cost-efficient and profitable.

Introducing the Second Generation of AI-Based Diamond Grading Systems

Six years after the world’s first AI-based diamond grading technology was launched by Sarine in 2017, we are delighted to release the second generation: Sarine Clarity-II™ and an updated version of the Sarine Color™ system. These grading technologies will extend the limits of diamond evaluation beyond the traditional 4Cs and support faster, more accurate results that will revolutionize the efficiency of the diamond supply chain.

Sarine has proven that an AI-driven solution based on high-fidelity data acquisition systems is the optimal grading choice and can evolve our market significantly – once and for all.  
 
In 2023, the industry will see a huge shift to Sarine-graded diamonds. For retailers, this means enhanced branding, an increase in consumer trust and a competitive edge in a tough and dynamic market. And for consumers, their diamonds will come with the assurance of objective and accurate AI-based grading for a more transparent and satisfying diamond purchase experience. 

“In the six years since the release of our AI-derived grading, we have acquired substantial knowledge on how to implement AI-based systems to meet and exceed the industry's requirements, not only in the lab but also on-site in various environments to meet the diverse needs of the manufacturing, sorting, wholesaling and retail sourcing sectors of the value chain." 

"With the rollout of eGrading™, initially, in the manufacturing segment, Sarine brings AI-based grading to the source, providing multiple benefits and making for a more efficient, shortened, and cost-effective supply chain.”
David Block, CEO of Sarine Technologies.

The Ultimate Sorting and Inventory Solution

With diamond grading being a part of the manufacturing process, sorting diamonds along multiple Clarity and Color parameters is key to boosting potential yield.

With the updated Sarine Color™ device, automated, objective Color grading becomes even more accurate, based on increasingly advanced algorithms that continue to learn and develop the Color grading capability. Furthermore, the advanced Sarine Color™ provides for additional refining of the Color grade by assessing fluorescence and tinge.
Now, the sorting parameters include milkiness, tinge, fluorescence, Black in Table (BIT), and Black in Crown (BIC), deepening the capability of the manufacturer to sort and manage their inventory to optimize potential value and meet market demands.

Sarine Clarity-II™ builds upon its predecessor, providing an array of advanced features that take AI automated Clarity grading to even higher levels of sophistication. Sarine Clarity-II™ provides grading across the entire spectrum of grades, from VVS to I , opening up a much broader range of inventory to automated clarity grading. In addition, the Clarity-II™ offers significantly expanded sorting capabilities covering a variety of new parameters, including Black in Table (BIT), Black in Crown (BIC), and more.
