GemePrice 4.0 pricing system for gems and jewelry released,

significant upgrades to user experience and color and price accuracy

 

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL: MARCH 26, 2015 - Gemewizard has announced the release of GemePrice 4.0, the latest generation of the gem industry's leading online dynamic price list and pricing system for colorless and colored diamonds, gemstones and jewelry.

 

The new system comes with a range of exciting new features, as well upgrades of existing elements. These include second-color moderators for colored diamonds, more gemstone types, an improved jeweler's station that enables an entire jewelry item to be priced, and an enhanced user experience through a completely new user-friendly interface, and more.

 

Like the earlier generations of the system, GemePrice 4.0 allocates prices to gems according to the color codes generated by Gemewizard. The system offers an exclusive solution to the international gems and jewelry market, displaying the exact color combination along with the price and relevant gem parameters.

 

The new version introduces a redesigned user interface, which is compatible with touch screen computers, tablets and smart phones. New visual guide rulers were added for transparency, clarity and cut grades in gemstones.

 

In the Gemstones Mode, new gem types were added to the list, color borders and grading rulers were refined and updated, and gemstone-treatment descriptions were revised to correspond to the AGTA-CIBJO-ICA coding system.

 

One of the most important additions is the option of a second color-moderator (e.g. brownish pink orange), which was added to the Colored Diamonds Mode, thus effectively expanding the number of fancy color combinations to more than 1,800.

 

New tools were added to the system, designed to improve the user experience. These include a color converter application, which allows the user to convert Gemewizard codes into equivalent GIA, Munsell and CIE LAB terminology, and also RGB and CMYK numerical values. This cross-industry tool provides the user with the means to communicate with colleagues and customers using his or her preferred color language.

 

Prices quoted by GemePrice 4.0 are generated and authenticated by an analysis of tens of thousands of fancy colored diamonds and gemstones, with a total value of more than $500 million, being offered for sale at any particular time on the Internet, as well as prices allocated by a panel of industry-renowned experts and real-time commercial data.

 

"Our goal in developing GemePrice 4.0 was to improve the user experience and also the accuracy of the application. Together with fancy diamond experts, our team has dedicated more than a year of research to create our unique second color-moderator engine, and to fine-tune existing grades and colors," said Menahem Sevdermish, Gemewizard's founder.

 

"When you have not more than minutes to determine the price of an item of jewelry set with diamonds and colored gemstones, you face what many would consider an overwhelming task," Mr. Sevdermish continued. "The value of every stone is influenced by a variety of factors, each of which may significantly affect the price in a different way. But GemePrice 4.0 simplifies the process, providing accurate and current pricing data almost instantaneously. It is a very significant leap forward for the way we price our gems and jewelry."

Gem-A and Gemewizard announce new Coloured Stones Grading Course

The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A) announced the official introduction of its brand new Coloured Stones Grading Course as launched at their annual Conference from 1 -4 November 2014, at the Business Design Centre, Islington. The new course, run in association with colour communication and gem grading specialists, Gemewizard, is designed to provide jewellers, gemmologists and enthusiasts with an introduction to the world of colour grading for gemstones, as well as providing tools to suggest the pricing of gems.

 

As announced by Gemewizard President, and creator of the system, Menahem Sevdermish during a talk on Sunday 2 November at the Gem-A Conference 2014, the course will teach candidates the value of colour and clarity grading and analysis, and introduces them to the latest techniques and online/digital grading tools that allow them to study the quality grades of a stone and use the results to gain real-time indicative pricing.

 

Ideal for anyone pursuing a career in buying, selling, auctioning or valuing gems or jewellery, the course defines grading rules, such as colour, transparency and cut and teaches the evaluation of these techniques and the methodology behind them. The pricing system then allows students to see the potential effect of each feature on the gem's world market price - giving details on the gem definitions, commercial names and misnomers, including different names and definitions used in international markets. A useful stepping stone to a career in the gem and jewellery world, the knowledge provided within the course will leave students with the skills they need to judge a gem's quality and price the stone accordingly - leaving graduates with abilities that will assist them in positions as gem and jewellery valuers, auctioneers and traders.

 

Discussing the new course and its practical application within the gemstone industry, Gemewizard's inventor Menahem Sevdermish said: "Gemewizard could not have asked for a better partner than Gem-A, a leader in gemmology education, to develop this innovative ground breaking course. The Gem-A Gemewizard course provides participants with important tools and skills to prepare them for a career in the gems and jewellery world. The accumulated knowledge and experience, which usually takes years to acquire in the real trade, can now be gained within a few months. In addition, the Gemewizard intuitive tools allow the student access to vast updated data of colour grades and prices of gems they cannot get anywhere else."

 

With such an innovative and interactive new system for the purposes of grading and pricing gemstones, Gem-A CEO James Riley, discusses how the decision to teach a course based on Gemewizard was a logical move. "As with all our latest developments, Gem-A is looking toward the new types of technologies that will shape our industry in the years ahead. Gemewizard's colour grading system with its associated GemePrice system is a one-of-a-kind piece of software that has an important role to play as one of the ways the gem community grades and prices gemstones. To keep up with the industry and the way it's moving, we at Gem-A think it's important to create new educational content that ensures those looking to join the trade are kept up-to-date will all the latest developments in techniques and technology."

 

The course will be available to the public in February of 2015. For more information about the course and what it entails, visit the Gem-A website via www.gem-a.com/education/coloured-stones-grading-course.aspx
