How Does it Work?
GEMPRINT® is based on scientific proof of a polished diamonds' individual identification similar to the human fingerprint for positive identification. Watch the videos below to see how GEMPRINT® works.
The GEMPRINT® patented technology is based on the digital capture of the unique refractive light pattern for each diamond (the diamond's "fingerprint" or "gemprint"), the database storage of such digital images, and the inquiry, matching and verification of a requested diamond's digital light refraction pattern to the registered database of diamonds.
When comparing two diamonds, the computer rotates the pattern to find the best alignment and then marks the matching points. Just like in fingerprint matching, positive identification requires a high percentage match.
