Argyle Pink Diamonds are widely argued to be the most sort after and expensive diamonds on the world market. The rarity and their characteristically beautiful deep pink hue is what sets these beautiful diamonds apart from other coloured diamonds on the market.

The Argyle mine is located in the Kimberley Region in northern Western Australia.  Exploration of the Argyle region started in the 1970s and it wasn’t until the 1980s that the Argyle mine was up and running. Since then the Argyle mine has continued to grow as the world’s leading producer of intense pink diamonds.  Every year Pink Argyle diamonds are sold on the world market for astoundingly high prices. Differing from white diamonds, pink diamonds are graded on their colour and saturation. The more intense the pink the higher the value – 1P being the darkest and 8P being the lightest.

It is estimated that the Argyle mines supplies 90 per cent of the worlds pink diamonds. However, this number is diminishing. It has been said that there is only 10 years supply of pink diamonds remaining, making now the perfect time to invest.
