The rare and exceptional Pink Argyle Diamond
The Australian Diamond Company is proud to house the rare, exceptional Pink Argyle Diamond. A celebration of colour and beauty, Pink Argyle diamonds have been extremely sought after for their rarity and beauty. Whilst their aesthetic allure has captured the eye of gem enthusiasts, they also attract attention from astute investors, as they have consistently outperformed traditional types of investments for over 15 years.
The Argyle mine is situated in the Kimberley region in far northeast Western Australia and is famous for producing approximately 95% of the world’s pink diamonds. The Argyle mine is the fourth largest diamond-producing mine in the world by volume with an average annual production of 8 million carats. Of this quantity, only 5% are considered gem-quality, with the rest being non-gem quality which are used in the industrial industry. Most of Argyle’s gem-quality production are diamonds. These typically have a very strong brown colouring which are referred to as cognac or champagne diamonds.
It is predicted the mine will close in 2019 causing a significant worldwide depletion of pink diamonds. It is likely the investment value of these beautiful diamonds will drastically increase upon cessation of the mine.
The Pink Diamond Tender
The Argyle mine tenders the top 50 or so diamonds. The Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender was established in 1984 and is an event held annually to highlight the top 50 or so diamonds produced by the Argyle mine that year. Discover more about the Tender Heroes.
Given the mine is estimated to close in 2019, it will only produce roughly another 400 – 500 pink diamonds making Argyle Pinks extremely sought after. Due to their exclusivity, these tendered pink diamonds are a very sound investment.
