Sarine Technologies to Adapt Automated 4Cs Grading to Tiffany & Co. Requirements
HOD HASHARON, Israel, Feb. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Singapore Exchange Mainboard listed, Israeli company Sarine Technologies Ltd 
("Sarine") (U77:SI), a worldwide leader in the development and manufacturing of 
precision technology products for the evaluation, planning, processing and 
grading of diamonds and gems announced that it is working with Tiffany & Co. 
("Tiffany") to adapt its artificial intelligence (AI) based grading technology 
to Tiffany's stringent grading guidelines and criteria.

The aim to perfect the way diamonds are graded and to ensure consistent and 
accurate grading is a key element in securing consumers' trust in diamonds. 
Sarine has invested significant R&D efforts and has been at the forefront of 
this quest, employing computer vision, advanced software algorithms, machine 
learning and AI to realize technology-based AI-driven objective grading. 
Sarine's automated grading technology substantially removes subjective human 
error and bias from the grading process, enabling a new level of accuracy, 
reliability and consistency. Sarine and Tiffany will now be working closely 
together to further develop and adapt Sarine's solution to meet Tiffany's 
discriminating grading standards for Color and Clarity. Sarine's automated 
grading technology, introduced in early 2018, was developed to be 'GIA 
compatible', meaning the basis for the machine learning and grading was the GIA 
grading system. Tiffany's stringent grading standards pose additional 
challenges, which require further refinement to adapt the paradigm to Tiffany's 
requirements. 

Sarine Technologies entered into a strategic cooperation with Tiffany in 2011, 
the purpose then was to develop an automated system (later known as DiaMension® 
Axiom) for the grading of a polished diamond's symmetry to standards set by 
Tiffany.

Andy Hart, Tiffany's Senior Vice President of Manufacturing, Diamonds & 
Gemstones, said, "The anticipated advances in grading technology by Sarine will 
enable the Tiffany Gemological Laboratory's graders to continually employ the 
best technology available in the industry to objectively, consistently and 
efficiently measure and uphold our demanding grading standards for Tiffany 
diamonds." 

David Block, CEO of Sarine Technologies, said, "We are excited to be working 
again with Tiffany, one of the leading polishing and retailing organizations in 
our industry. Adapting our technology based grading to meet Tiffany's rigorous 
grading standards is a non-trivial task, requiring a dedicated team of 
gemmologists, scientists and engineers to push the technological envelope even 
further."
