Argyle pink diamonds offer a vibrancy and spectrum of colour not seen in any other natural diamonds. Their reputation for rarity, beauty and luxury makes them the most highly sought-after diamond by collectors, investors and jewellers across the globe.

Argyle Pink Diamonds

Western Australia’s East Kimberley region is home to the Rio Tinto owned Argyle Diamond Mine and is the fitting birthplace of Argyle pink diamonds. Though it has now closed, while active the Argyle Mine was producing 90 percent of the world’s pink diamonds. With pinks being extremely scarce, they represented much less than 0.1% of the total diamond production of the Argyle Mine.

Rohan Jewellers is proud to be an Argyle Pink Diamond Select Atelier, in our last year of having the privilege of working closely with Argyle as one of a select few jewellers worldwide, entrusted with crafting bespoke pink diamond jewellery. To own an Argyle pink diamond is to own a piece of Australian history, and an heirloom to be passed through generations.


Argyle Champagne Diamonds

How Champagne diamonds get their unique palette remains somewhat of a mystery. Scientists believe that during formation coloured diamonds were influenced by extra pressure or external trace elements such as oxygen. The romantics amongst us, however, believe their natural hues come from Mother Nature, who crafted the diamonds below to directly reflect the colours and beauty of the land above.

The Argyle Champagne diamond has a natural brown hue with a subtle honey tint— like the sparkle of a fine glass of champagne. Their unique colouring occurs due to nitrogen build up between the carbon atoms as the diamond forms. The higher the level of nitrogen, the darker the shade.


The Argyle Diamond Mine

Between 1983 and 2020, Argyle Diamonds has mined from this remote East Kimberly region, the world’s most exquisite natural coloured gems. Prior to the 1980s, production of pink diamonds had been sporadic, and limited to international mines.

Unearthing these treasures, formed at a depth of over 160 kilometres below the earth’s surface, was a challenge both in size and complexity. Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, the Argyle underground mine comprised an intricate network which comprised two underground crushers and around 40 kilometres of tunnels, facilitating the access of diamonds from the furthest reaches of the earth.

Each Argyle pink diamond has taken a year’s long journey via many careful hands, from a rough unearthed in the mine to its final destination as a polished gem.
