The Bonas Group, a global tender and auction house, announced they are adopting the Sarine Diamond Journey traceability program and will offer stones with a registered geographical origin.
Bonas brings diamond output directly to the market. Therefore, the origin can be confidently assured. The diamonds will be registered using the Sarine Diamond Journey ecosystem. The rough diamonds will be accurately scanned, allowing their subsequent traceability throughout the polishing process, providing retailers reliably traced diamonds from varied origins.
Philip Hoymans, Managing Director of Bonas-Couzyn (Antwerp) NV of the Bonas Group, said: “Bonas remains committed to supporting and promoting positive, ethical and sustainable standards for the diamond and gemstone industries. (...) Diamond traceability is rapidly becoming a must-have in our industry. We are adopting Sarine's solution, as it perfectly meets our needs — it provides a steadfast data-base solution and is scalable to our volumes of stones, as it only requires us to add a quick scan. Just as important, it integrates seamlessly with our customers’ operations, since they already employ Sarine systems in their cutting and polishing processes, which can now automatically continue the traceability process."
