Sarin to Incorporate GIA Cut Grade

Sarin Technologies says it will soon incorporate the new Gemological Institute of America cut grading system in its DiaVision™ product for grading and recutting polished diamonds and in Advisor™, Sarin's rough diamond planning software. These new programs will work on most of Sarin's existing machines with only a software upgrade needed.

The new GIA cut grading system is the result of research on how light behaves within diamonds and the relation between diamond proportions and appearance. One conclusion of the research implemented in the new grading system is that diamonds of different appearance may still yield a top cut grade. This allows for higher potential rough yield for manufacturers, while providing the necessary flexibility to diamond traders and retailers who need to accommodate changing market needs.

"We are excited to be able to cooperate with GIA," says Udi Lederer, Sarin product manager. "We look forward to continue serving our worldwide clients in the gem lab, manufacturing, and diamond retail industries."

Sarin Technologies is scheduled to present an advanced peek at the new GIA grading system in its products at the JCK Las Vegas Show, June 3-7 or for more information. contact Udi Lederer at (972-3) 751-5490 x110,,
