HB Antwerp and Sarine enter into a partnership for technology solutions

10 may 2021
Sarine Technologies Ltd, a worldwide leader in the development, manufacture, and sale of precision technology products for the evaluation, planning, processing, grading, and trading of diamonds and gems has joined with HB Antwerp as a technology partner, according to a press release from Sarine.
HB is a company based in Antwerp focused on technology-driven sourcing, analysing, cutting, and polishing of diamonds. HB is applying an innovative methodology designed to simplify the complexities and challenges of the global diamond supply chain and enhance transparency.
HB Antwerp authenticates each stage of its value chain, made in Antwerp, using its own unique blockchain and traceability proprietary technologies combined with Sarine’s traceability solution. This allows HB to offers luxury brands and private consumers a customised product.
Under this new partnership with HB Antwerp, Sarine will also be providing its industry-leading Galaxy® scanning, planning, and AI-grading technologies, which will be fully integrated with HB’s proprietary technologies throughout the process, from rough sourcing to the final polished result. The partnership aims to demonstrate that transparency and open collaboration can benefit all the stakeholders throughout the value chain.
In addition, the two companies have also agreed to explore the co-development of new technologies based on their R&D centers in Israel and Belgium. HB Antwerp will remunerate Sarine based on a percentage of the value of the produced polished diamonds.
Rafael Papismedov, HB Antwerp's Strategy Director, commented, "HB Antwerp and Sarine have a solid foundation for cooperation, given Sarine's advanced technology and solutions, which synergize with HB Antwerp's unique capabilities and vision for streamlining the value-chain and providing the end consumers with the quality products they desire, along with the transparency and confidence they now demand. We welcome Sarine into our ecosystem and are looking forward to leverage on our combined capabilities".
David Block, Sarine Group CEO, remarked, "HB Antwerp's ecosystem is a significant step towards the much-needed optimisation of the diamond industry value chain. This new paradigm combining producers, manufacturers, and retailers underpinned by the latest technologies has the potential to revolutionise our industry. We are proud to be a partner in this new paradigm and are very excited about the potential of this new and innovative ecosystem."
