Australian Pink Diamonds by Argyle Jewellers
About Pink Diamonds
Pink diamonds are beautiful, valuable and exceptionally rare. We source our pink diamonds from the world’s leading producer – Rio Tinto’s Argyle Diamond Mine in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. This mine is responsible for 90% of the world’s pink diamond supply, yet the gems are so rare that this only equates to 50 or 60 pink diamonds each year.
All pink diamonds are coveted for their beauty and rarity, but this is even more true for diamonds from Rio Tinto’s Argyle Diamond Mine. Australian pink diamonds have a distinctly radiant depth of pink colour that is rarely found in pink diamonds from other countries, which tend to be more soft and pale.
The Origin of Australian Pink Diamonds
In 1979, a group of geologists were digging in the heart of a region known as East Kimberley, in Western Australia. They spotted something glimmering in an anthill, and it turned out to be a depository of diamonds. Of all the stones that Rio Tinto’s Argyle Diamond Mine would reveal, the most highly prized and supremely precious are their rare pink diamonds. Only a very small percentage of the Diamonds mined by the mine are pink – less than 0.1% in fact. Australian Argyle Pink Diamonds are beyond rare – they have become an Australian ‘heritage’ item that is highly sought after by collectors and investors from all around the globe.
Collectible Pink Diamond Investment
Rio Tinto’s Argyle Diamond Mine is predicted to close at the end of 2020, due to exhausted supply. This is sure to cause a global decrease in pink diamond availability, and make already-rare Australian pink diamonds even more sought after!
Pink diamonds experience the highest interest growth of all coloured diamonds, with an average investment growth of 15% (it has reached up to 20%). Over the last 15 years, the prices of pink diamonds have never dropped – and experts don’t believe they ever will.
At Argyle Jewellers, we have a magnificent range of loose and set pink diamonds. All of our Australian pink diamonds come with an Argyle Lot Number and/or Certificate, which guarantees their quality and authenticity.
