Orem, UT, October 22, 2008 -- Suncrest Diamonds is a sister company of Sundance Diamonds, the world’s leading high pressure
high temperature (HPHT) diamond processing company, announced today the opening of a
state-of-the-art diamond testing service in the Brink’s office of the Israel Diamond Exchange in
Ramat Gan, Israel. At no charge to the trade, the testing will indicate if HPHT processing can
increase the value of a diamond to a colorless, near colorless, or fancy pink, yellow, or orange color.
The new testing facility, located in the Maccabi Building of the Exchange, is by appointment only.
It is the second Sundance testing facility opened this year. The first one opened in January 2008,
in New York City. Sundance representatives, Jim Littman and Carlos Cornejo, will host the office
opening on October 30, 2008. All bourse members are invited to attend.
“Sundance Diamonds recognizes that the Israel diamond industry plays a significant role in the
worldwide diamond trade. By opening a testing facility in Israel, the company can better serve
these customers by providing a valuable tool to help maximize diamond value and margin,” said
Carlos Cornejo, customer manager at Sundance Diamonds.
“Through its exclusive Sundance technology, customers will now have the advantage of knowing
the diamond type of each submitted stone and an estimate of the final result of HPHT before
committing to processing,” added Jim Littman, director of business development at
“The Sundance Diamonds testing facility provides a great opportunity for the trade,” according
to Raz Zvi, global services manager at Brink’s. “Sundance customers can now take advantage
of a one-stop service that makes testing and shipping diamonds very easy.”
