The most rare and astonishing are the Argyle Pink Diamond. Argyle pink diamonds, from a certifiable source and of a depth and range of colour never seen before, have commanded the world's attention since their discovery.
Unearthing these treasures, formed at a depth of over 160 kilometres below the earth’s surface, is a challenge both in size and complexity. Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, the Argyle underground mine comprises an intricate network which comprises two underground crushers and around 40 kilometres of tunnels, facilitating the access of diamonds from the furthest reaches of the earth.
It will take over a year and many careful hands for a rough Argyle pink diamond to journey from the mine to its final destination as a polished gem." - Argyle Pink Diamonds
While natural fancy coloured diamonds are scarce, Argyle pink diamonds are inherently so.
So rare are they that less than an entire year’s worth of supply over half a carat would fit in the palm of one’s hand, while the number of red, blue and violet diamonds can be counted on one hand alone.
The finest of each year’s discoveries, just 50-60 of these rare natural treasures are brought to life as polished masterpieces and offered for sale each year as part of the Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender.
The Argyle Diamond Mine is the world’s only consistent source of pink diamonds, accounting for more than 90 percent of the world’s pink diamond supply; although this treasure trove will not continue in perpetuity.As awareness around their rarity deepens, Argyle pink diamonds are increasingly sought-after - acquired by collectors and connoisseurs around the world for their personal holdings and bespoke jewellery creations. - Argyle Pink Diamonds
It has been announced that the Argyle Mines WILL CLOSE. A specific date has not yet been released, but the news of its closure makes these Diamonds even more precious.
Argyle Pink Diamonds are an exquisite investment and will increase in value once the mine has closed, as they are expected to become scarce and hard to find once the mine has closed.
