The Pink Diamond Colour Grade
The stones sold at Pink Kimberley are from the Argyle mine in Western Australia, and have been classified using two colour grading systems, the Argyle pink diamond system and the GIA system.
The GIA grading method for pink diamonds varies slightly from that of the Argyle mine, classing each stone by their intensity of their pink colour. The Argyle pink diamond grading method is internationally recognised and developed exclusively for pink diamonds, grading stones based on their hue, tone and saturation.
Pink diamonds can embody a kaleidoscope of different colours, but the fundamental directive is that with intensity of colour, comes opulence and value.Read more >>

The term ‘Argyle pink diamond’ indicates that the diamond in question has been sourced from the Argyle Mine in Western Australia’s Kimberly region. Although 90% of the world’s entire pink diamond holdings have been sourced from the Argyle Mine, not every single pink diamond is considered to be an Argyle Pink Diamond.
The pink diamonds sourced from Western Australia’s Argyle Mine are world renowned for their discernibly vivid pink colour. The same degree of colour radiance is seldom found in pink diamonds from other origins. The closure of the mine in November 2020 ensures that each diamond yields a piece of Australian geological history.
No, Argyle pink diamonds are no longer being mined. The Argyle Mine in Western Australia’s East Kimberley Region ceased operation in November of 2020. The mine closed its doors after its diamond yield had been exhausted. The closure of the mine and limited availability of the Argyle pink diamonds has made them an exceedingly rare commodity.
