Are Argyle pink diamonds a good investment?

Are Argyle diamonds valuable?

The Argyle’s mine closure was a loss for the diamond industry, especially pink coloured diamonds. The land produced roughly 8,000 carats of some of the world’s rarest diamonds, including the coveted Argyle pink diamonds, each year. Without this supply from the Australian Argyle diamond mine, it’ll be hard to see even a fraction of pink diamond introduced to the market annually. The rare characteristics of Argyle pink diamonds, coupled with the mine’s closure, make any Argyle diamond tacked with its name (which has become a brand in itself) valuable.

How much are Argyle diamonds worth?

Like all diamonds, Argyle diamonds are valued based on the 4Cs: carat, clarity, colour, and cut. That said, prices start at $80,000 per carat, going up to tens of millions of dollars per carat. Argyle pink diamonds can even be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars per carat, which is significantly more than white diamonds. For example, the most expensive pink diamond, called the “CTF Pink Star,” weighing 59.6 carats, sold close to $100 million.
You can only shop for Argyle pink diamonds at an auction or a diamond exchange, and only a handful of dealers work with such fancy pink diamonds. You can also find an Argyle pink diamond at our diamonds shop. Whether you want pink diamond earrings, pink rings, or simply to own an Argyle pink diamond, you won’t regret purchasing one of these rare diamonds.

What is the origin of Argyle diamonds?

Argyle diamonds come from the Argyle mine in eastern Kimberley, Western Australia, owned by the Rio Tinto Mining Company. Unfortunately, it closed in 2020 after 37 years in the diamond business. The closure of the Argyle pink diamond mine has caused a limited edition of Argyle diamonds.

How rare are Argyle pink diamonds in Australia?

How rare are Argyle pink diamonds? Since opening in 1983, the Australian Argyle mine has supplied the world with more than 865 million carats of natural diamond material. But only 5% of that are gem-quality (the rest are industrial-grade). Of that 5%, 80% of the diamonds are a variation of a brown diamond, 15% are yellow hues, 4% are colourless, and 1% are pink, red, blue, and violet diamonds. The diamonds account for some of the most valuable diamonds on earth, and they’re so rare that a year’s worth of the diamonds can fit in the palm of your hand. Moreover, pink diamonds, specifically, only account for less than 1% of the world’s gemstone production.

What gives pink Argyle diamonds their natural colour?

The rare colour of Argyle pink diamonds is attributed to the Argyle pipe, a volcanic pipe made of olivine lamproite. Due to an eruption, minerals interacted with the diamonds causing distortions in their crystal structure, giving them their natural pink hue. Pink diamonds add style and sparkle to any piece of diamond jewellery, including rings, earrings, bracelets, and more. You could get a loose pink diamond to set in any personal piece of jewellery.
