The technology was launched in 2009.

(Press Release) HOD HASHARON, ISRAEL – Singapore Exchange Mainboard-listed Sarine Technologies Ltd. announced that its Galaxy family of scanning and inclusion mapping systems in 2017 scanned more than 10 million stones worldwide.

Since its release into the market in late 2009, Sarine’s internal inclusion mapping technology, as embodied in the Galaxy family of systems, today encompassing the Galaxy, Galaxy XL, Galaxy Ultra, Solaris and Meteor products, has provided automated, accurate, comprehensive and fast inclusion mapping data for rough diamonds in all major diamond processing centers wordwide. This allows computer-assisted diamond planning based also on clarity, in addition to cut and carat weight, as was previously the norm. The Galaxy family of systems has revolutionized the planning and production processes by maximizing polished diamond yield while expediting the manufacturing cycle and reducing human error.

As announced on July 2, 2015, half a dozen years passed before reaching the milestone of having cumulatively scanned 10 million stones through inclusion mapping systems worldwide. At that time, average quarterly throughput was only 1 million stones. Sarine reports that it has scanned over 30 million stones cumulatively since the technology’s launch.

According to the company: “We believe that as we continue to deliver additional systems worldwide, including new upgrades and models scheduled for 2018, and as we continue to aggressively counter illicit infringement of our intellectual property, we will continue to expand the use of our technology and the setting of new records of annual usage.”

David Block, CEO of Sarine, stated, “Sarine’s staff worldwide is jubilant at having achieved this significant milestone. Having without doubt proven its value, the Galaxy solution has uniquely propelled the industry to a higher level of quality. By scanning 10 million rough stones in 2017, our loyal customer base has clearly expressed, once again, confidence in our cutting-edge technology. We will continue our commitment to developing and delivering the highest-quality inclusion mapping solutions, including the new Meteorite system to be launched shortly and additional upgrades to be launched later in 2018 with further technological breakthroughs.”

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
