Tiny treasures

Natural Pink Diamonds

By a beautiful quirk of nature, only a tiny percentage of diamonds mined are pink in colour, making them the rarest and most valuable in the world.  About ninety percent of the world’s pink diamonds originate from the Australian Argyle mine, and just one tenth of one percent of the Argyle Diamond Mine’s production is pink.

  • Pink diamonds are more valuable than other diamonds, with prices between 10 to 30 times that of white diamonds.
  • The mine is expected by its owner, Rio Tinto, to continue producing diamonds only until 2020, when the mine is predicted to close.
  • Argyle grades of pink are measured by tone and intensity.  Tones include red, pink, purplish pink, pink rose, pink champagne, while the intensity is measured in numbers from 1-8, with 1 being the most intense in colour.
  • There are many designs that can take into account the petite size of many pink diamonds, turning a tiny treasure into a gorgeous jewel and heirloom.

Fancy Colours

Not all coloured diamonds are pink.

  • Argyle mine produces some blue diamonds, which can be as valuable and rare as pink.
  • Argyle and other mines around the world also produce champagne and cognac diamonds.  Sometimes referred to as ‘chocolate’ diamonds, they are not as rare as pink, and so can be very affordable.   Imbued with effervescent natural colours with rich overtones of yellow, orange and pink, these diamonds represent the best opportunity for value.
  • Fancy Yellow diamonds are mined in other parts of the world, and can vary from pastel tones through to intense golden in colour.
  • Coloured diamonds are highly sought after for their versatility in providing contrast in jewellery design, especially the increasingly popular black diamond.
