The Timeless Allure of Argyle Pink Diamonds: A Complete Guide
12 November 2023
Journey through a billion years of captivating history as we explore the exceptional Argyle Pink Diamond™. Each gem is not just a jewel but a timeless narrative that began in the heart of the Earth and continues to grace generations.
When it comes to diamonds, Argyle pink diamonds are known for their unique vibrancy and spectrum of colours, which make them highly sought after for their rarity, beauty, and luxury.
Just like with any other diamond, it’s important to consider the four Cs – colour, clarity, cut, and carat – when purchasing a pink diamond. However, with pink diamonds, the focus is more on colour, as the intensity and rarity of the colour can significantly increase the diamond’s value.
It’s worth noting that the ultimate pink diamond doesn’t necessarily have to be large, as only a small percentage of them are over a carat in size.
The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) grades pink diamonds based on both colour and clarity. The colour categories range from Faint Pink to rare colours such as Fancy Deep Pink and Fancy Red.
The 4C’s of Diamonds
In the realm of fancy coloured diamonds, the significance of the ‘C’ for colour surpasses the influence of the other three Cs—clarity, cut, and carat weight—when determining their value.
This principle holds particularly true for Argyle pink diamonds, whose value seamlessly escalates with the heightened intensity of colour. While factors like clarity and fluorescence traditionally play a pivotal role in shaping the value of white diamonds, the evaluation of Argyle pink diamonds places less emphasis on these characteristics.
The Art of Argyle
During times of financial market volatility and instability, wealthy collectors around the world tend to invest in hard assets that are rare and valuable. Argyle pink diamonds are one such asset that meets these criteria. As the supply of these diamonds dwindles, collectors continue to acquire them for their holdings.
Argyle pink diamonds are often compared to fine art due to their unique beauty and perpetual value. Both have historically sustained their worth and status as definitive collectibles, regardless of market conditions.
Authenticity and Assured Provenance
From the moment a rough Argyle pink diamond is unearthed from the Argyle Diamond Mine until it is offered for purchase as a polished stone, the collectable is upheld by professional vigilance and dedicated care.
Once unearthed, each Argyle pink diamond over eight points (0.08cts) was authenticated with documentation and a unique lot number laser inscribed on the gem, visible only under magnification. The inscription and documentation represent an important guarantee regarding the chain of custody from the Argyle Diamond Mine to the point of purchase, assuring that the gem has always been in the care of Argyle Pink Diamonds and its trusted trade partners.
