Buying Guide: How To Select The Right Pink Diamond
Argyle pink diamonds or Australian pink diamonds are not only one of the most exquisite diamonds in the world but are one of the rarest too. The Argyle Diamond Mine in East Kimberley in WA was once the biggest source of pink diamonds in the world. However, since the mine shut down in 2020, the value of these diamonds has increased multifold as only a limited number of pink diamonds remain in the world. And the chances of finding a new diamond deposit are uncertain.
As a result, owning an Argyle pink diamond has become a highly enticing investment and now is the best time to buy pink Argyle diamonds.
As experts in pink Argyle diamonds, we will guide you through the process of finding and selecting the perfect piece to add to your collection.
What is the difference between Argyle pink diamonds and pink diamonds?
As the name suggests, pink diamonds are diamonds that are pink in colour. This colour is credited to the huge amount of heat and pressure the diamonds are subjected to over the course of billions of years. Pink diamonds are categorised according to their colour, shade and intensity. These diamonds can be found all over the world, including in South Africa, Canada, Russia, Brazil and Tanzania.
However, the mine in Kimberley, Western Australia is the most notable one of them all as it accounts for almost 90% of the world’s best pink diamonds. The diamonds from this mine have a distinct bubblegum-pink colour and superior colour saturation compared to diamonds from other mines. Unlike other pinks, Argyle diamonds are graded according to a specific system that divides hues into four major categories: Pink Rosé (PR), Purplish Pink (PP), Pink (P) and Pink Champagne (PC). Argyle pink diamonds can also be found in hues of blue-violet, purplish-red or red, with red being the rarest of them all.
