The machine, which is currently undergoing advanced large-scale testing in India, can revolutionise the diamond industry by bringing in more transparency and trust in the way the market operates.

“The system will simplify the clarity grading process and provide accurate and objective mapping of the polished diamond, enhancing consumer trust in each diamond’s valuation,” the company’s spokesperson Tamar Brosh said.

It enables diamond manufacturers and traders to ensure that each individual stone is optimally valued for its ideal sales market, the company said.

The firm, well-known for its earlier innovations like Galaxy and DiaMension that are widely used by manufacturers all over the world, has also developed advanced automated Sarine Colour evaluation technology with lab-grade accuracy that is also currently being tested in India.

“The technology will revolutionise the way the diamond industry and consumers perceive Clarity grading and transform the polished sourcing and sorting process,” the company’s CEO Uzi Levami said.
