The glittering lights of New York City provided a striking backdrop for the launch of the 2017 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender, as international media and invited guests witnessed the world-first unveiling of the largest Fancy Red diamond ever offered in the more than thirty year history of the Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender. The 2.11 carat radiant cut diamond, known as The Argyle Everglow™, is the extraordinarily rare centrepiece of this year’s collection of 58 coveted pink, red and violet diamonds, highlighted for their exceptional combination of size, clarity and colour.
Beyond a spectacular selection of five ‘hero’ diamonds from the Tender was unveiled a once-in-a-lifetime collection of jewels valued at more than US$60 million – the spectacular creations of Argyle Pink Diamonds’ US partners, Scott West, JFINE and Optimum Diamonds. Amongst the display were the magnificent Argyle Allegro™ Red Roses earrings, from renowned author Nicholas Sparks’ collection in partnership with Optimum Diamonds. Meticulously crafted with 20 Fancy Red and Fancy Purplish Red diamonds totaling 9.34 carats, the statement earrings feature a number important diamonds from previous Signature Tenders and are a stunning tribute to the iconic event which continues to deliver the most exceptional and alluring fancy coloured diamonds in existence.
