From 1984 to 2021, 50 to 70 of the finest pink, red, blue and violet diamonds discovered each year at the Argyle Diamond Mine, were offered for sale at the annual Argyle Pink Diamonds Signature Tender™. Since 2008, the most notable specimens of each Tender collection were also named, to reflect their historical significance.
The Argyle Pink Diamonds Signature Tender™ was widely regarded as the most exclusive diamond sale event in the world. Each coveted collection was showcased by means of private viewings held in iconic cities across the globe. Only a select group of diamantaires, luxury jewellers and collectors were invited to these viewings, with sealed bids placed for individual or multiple diamonds.
Coloured Argyle Diamonds™ of the calibre exhibited in the Tender were so rare, that in the entire 38-year history of the event, only a little over two champagne flutes worth were ever offered. Their extraordinary rarity was reflected in the value of bids submitted, which had exceeded millions of dollars per carat, particularly those in the rarer colour categories such as Fancy Red
Discover the absolute. This supreme cache of rare Argyle Pink Diamonds™ stand apart from their counterparts. With unparalleled intensity of colour, and magnificent size, they exist as the ultimate object of desire. In a realm of their own, their enduring beauty and otherworldly aura will continue to set the tone for meta-luxury.
