RAPAPORT... Sarine Technologies will modify its diamond-grading equipment to comply with the luxury jewelry retailer’s stringent guidelines.

Sarine bases its automated grading on the Gemological Institute of America’s grading system. However, Tiffany’s in-house graders have “discriminating” color and clarity standards that pose “additional challenges” to the artificial-intelligence-based system. Therefore, the company needs to refine the equipment to adapt to the jeweler’s guidelines.

“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,” Andy Hart, Tiffany senior vice president of manufacturing, diamonds and gemstones, said last week.
