WHEN THE HISTORY OF DIAMOND TECHNOLOGY IS WRITTEN, SARINE WILL PLAY A MAJOR PART
Discover a sparkling history of technology as part of the development of the modern diamond manufacturing process. Mined from the earth, cut and polished to radiant beauty in the hands of the skilled diamond cutter, the story of the diamond and the story of Sarine are intimately entwined, against the backdrop of the history of the global diamond industry.
THE EVOLUTION OF DIAMOND TECHNOLOGY
Deep in the earth under high heat and intense pressure, a diamond is created. From the year 1000 BC to today, diamond technology has grown tremendously. In 1000 BC, the power of a diamond’s hardness was discovered, and it was first used as a cutting tool.
Diamond technology has grown tremendously through the millenniums, the greatest heights being reached within only the last few centuries, Modern science allows us to learn more every day about diamonds, inspiring the creation of better systems for more defined grading scales. The new Sarine Profile™ shows us the whole story of the diamond, proving we’ve traversed galaxies from the days of diamond talismans during the Roman Empire.
Sarine entered the scene with the DiaMension™ scanning technology in 1992. The DiaMension™ had the unique capability to automatically grade the diamond’s cut, via instant and accurate measurements and proportions.
In 1995, Sarine sparked a revolution with the Advisor™. With automated planning and guidance technology based on accurate measurements, the Advisor™ offered proof to maximize the value of a rough stone.
The Diamark™ was introduced to the diamond world in 1999 as a laser marking system for diamond cutting instructions that set a new industry standard for rough planning and precision.
In 2009, the Galaxy™ arrived on the market, breaking through new frontiers in diamond inclusion mapping. Sarine took rough planning to heights never before reached.
2013 Sarine Light™
With the arrival of 2013, the Sarine Light™ took diamond grading beyond the 4Cs. Presenting powerful scientific measurement of light performance, the definition of a diamond’s beauty was expanded to include the Brilliance, Sparkle, Fire, and Light Symmetry.
“Diamond is the substance that possesses the greatest value not only among the precious stones but of all human possessions…”
Pliny the Elder,
