GIA use Sarin machines for measuring. So, the answer to the question is they are both the same. There are new and old versions of Sarin output floating around. The addition of the length of upper and lower girdle facetsand greater details on other facets in the newer output helps the predicitve model makers to do their magic. I find the old version adequate since we directly measure light output and only require the basic measurements to assist in stone identification and cut quality grading. How does GIA/Sarin measure out-of-the-ordinary or speciality cuts?
When a consumer gets highly detailed number sets they will get lost in the minutiae of the numbers and fail to get good information about how well the diamond looks or does not look. Lots of data might be considered a friendly smokescreen of sorts. The important thing about a diamond is not its numbers, but its beauty. SO TRUE!!!!!
