Argyle Pink Diamonds

Revered the world over for their captivating palette, pink diamonds are as scarce as they are sought after.

Argyle pink diamonds are iconic, as is the mine that produces them. The Argyle Diamond Mine in Western Australia has been the virtual sole source of the world’s supply of rare pink diamonds for more than three decades, yet less than 1% of the mine’s total production is pink. Having almost exhausted economic production, Argyle will close at the end of 2020, fast-diminishing opportunities to unearth its spectacular colour spectrum. It is estimated that there are less than 100 Argyle Pink Diamonds Signature Tender diamonds remaining to be discovered before the mine is retired. It is this limited supply that underscores the truly unique prestige of an Argyle pink diamond.

The Argyle Pink Diamond
Colour Guide

So unique is the colour palette of Argyle pink diamonds, that a proprietary colour grading system was created by the company’s team of expert graders in the early 1980’s. This internationally recognised system is used to assess the diamonds based on hue (dominant colour) and saturation (strength or intensity of the hue).

After in-house grading, each Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender diamond is submitted to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) for grading. The GIA grades pink diamonds by both colour and clarity, with colour categories ranging from Faint Pink through to the rarest colours such as Fancy Deep Pink and Fancy Red.
