The rush of new love and the glow of femininity. Tender affection and romantic adoration. Feminine charm and the passion of youth. There are many wonderful things associated with the colour pink, and an Argyle Pink Diamond perfectly encapsulates them all.

This rare gemstone is known to be revered by many but acquired by only a fortunate few, fewer still now that Rio Tinto’s Argyle Diamond Mine as of 2020, has closed for good. The mine, located in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia was first discovered in 1979 by a group of geologists, and at the time was the largest diamond mine on Earth. Pictures alone are not enough to truly appreciate the scale and magnitude of the deposit.

Since its closure in 2020 there have been no discoveries of pink diamond mines anywhere else in the world, ensuring that these diamonds remain amongst the most elusive and most coveted gemstones to exist.

Why Argyle Pink Diamonds make for the perfect investment

Since their discovery in 1979, the price of Argyle Pink Diamonds has never dropped, not even in times of financial struggle – in fact it has steadily increased and is predicted to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Over the past twenty years alone the price of Argyle Pink Diamonds has seen a dramatic increase that is hard to measure but the estimations are very high.

With the closure of the Rio Tinto mine a few years ago, the disproportion between supply and demand has only continued to grow, and so too has their value, making them an excellent choice of investment. 

These resplendent gems also make for an excellent medium of wealth preservation; loose Argyle Pink Diamonds and Argyle Pink Diamond jewellery can be handed down from generation to generation and transported across the globe with ease, not to mention there is no fear of wear-and-tear due to their natural durability.

Thanks to the ratio between their size and their value, Argyle Pink Diamonds are one of the most highly concentrated forms of wealth that one can own, making them both an aesthetically beautiful accessory and an ideal investment.

What to look for in an Argyle Pink Diamond

There are a number of qualities to look out for when investing in an Argyle Pink Diamond. Whilst white diamonds are evaluated based on their carat, clarity, and weight, Argyle Pink Diamonds have a different scale of appraisal that relies on rarity in the form of hue, tone, and saturation.

No other mine has produced diamonds with the vibrancy and depth of hue that Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine has. Hue refers to the dominant colour present in the diamond, although the overall aesthetic is also affected by variations of pink colours. For example a diamond that is appraised as ‘Purplish Pink’ would appear to be predominantly pink with modifying purple accents. Diamonds with an intense pure pink hue are exceedingly rare and demand the highest prices out of all pink diamonds.

The tone of an Argyle Pink Diamond refers to how light or dark it appears. Lighter tones tend to appear more youthful and delicate, whereas medium tones can more easily achieve a higher saturation. Diamonds with dark tones typically possess brown modifying colours, or secondary hues, and aren’t valued as highly as their lighter counterparts.

The final factor of evaluation is saturation, which refers to the intensity and purity of the hue. Pink diamonds with high saturation are extremely rare and are thus considered more valuable.
