Grib Diamonds has joined Sarine Technologies’ provenance programme, giving the Antwerp-based merchant the ability to give source verification for the rough it sells.

The traceability information will be used by Grib, which sells raw from AGD Diamonds’ Grib mine in Russia, to supplement the Sarine technology it already gives clients, the Israel-based equipment vendor said Wednesday. These include flaw mapping in high-value diamonds and planning systems that assist manufacturers in determining the optimum way to cut a stone.

“We feel that the transparency given by technology-based tracking is the greatest approach to respond to this situation and enable our sector to continue to prosper,” said Grib managing director Igor Prokhorenko.
