Argyle Pink Diamonds™

“IN ANOTHER DECADE THE ARGYLE PINK DIAMOND™ WILL EMERGE AS THE NEW FABERGÉ EGG, THE THING JEWELLERY MYTHS ARE MADE OF.”

Vivienne Becker, International Jewellery Historian, 2015

Since the first pink diamonds were unearthed from the ancient beauty of their Western Australian birthplace in 1983, they have been valued for their incomparable rarity. To put their singularity into perspective - of approximately 15 million carats of rough diamonds that were produced from the Argyle Diamond Mine each year, less than 1% was pink. Consider, also, that the Argyle Diamond Mine accounted for more than 90 percent of the world’s supply of pink diamonds. With the mine now closed, and no other source in the world known to consistently produce diamonds of Argyle’s iconic spectrum - the unique honour of owning an Argyle Pink Diamond™- is beyond measure.

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 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.
