The finest Argyle pink diamonds, distinguished for their vibrancy and intensity of colour, are reserved for the annual Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender - an event widely regarded as the most exclusive diamond sale in the world.
Included in each Signature Tender is a curation of approximately 50 to 60 of Argyle’s largest and most vivid pink, red and violet diamonds. These are Argyle’s rarest treasures, representing less than 0.01 percent of diamonds ever unearthed from the mine. Exceptional specimens destined to weigh above 0.20 carats are hand sorted and selected for rendering to polished perfection at Argyle Pink Diamonds’ state-of-the-art Western Australian facility by master artisans with 100 years of collective expertise, before being colour graded and submitted to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) for certification.
Private Tender viewings are held in several cities around the world, wherein a select group of diamantaires, luxury jewellers and collectors are invited to place sealed bids for individual or multiple diamonds. Prices for Tender diamonds can exceed millions of dollars per carat.
One of the final collections, One Lifetime One Encounter comprises 62 rare pink, red and blue Signature Tender diamonds and 12 Petite Suite sets, each a masterfully curated and unrepeatable showcase of rare Argyle specimens.
