Rio Tinto unveils its largest red diamond at Australian debut

Rio Tinto unveils its largest red diamond at Australian debut

30 August 2017

Rio Tinto unveiled the largest Fancy Red diamond in the history of its Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender during its Australian preview.

Rio Tinto chief executive J-S Jacques showcased The Argyle Everglow™ at the first Australian viewing of the 2017 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender at a special preview in Perth.

J-S Jacques said “The market fundamentals for pink diamonds remain robust. The combination of healthy demand and extremely limited supply continues to support significant value appreciation for pink diamonds.”

“This year’s Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender is an exceptional offering of the world’s most coveted diamonds. At more than a billion years old, each Argyle pink diamond is a fluke of nature, commanding the attention of investors, collectors and diamond connoisseurs across the world.”

The Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender is the annual showcase of the rarest diamonds from Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine.

The 2017 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender is named ‘Custodians of Rare Beauty’ in honour of its rich provenance and honourable pedigree. The 58 diamonds in the Tender weigh a total of 49.39 carats – including four Fancy Red diamonds, four Purplish Red diamonds, two Violet diamonds, and one Blue diamond.

The collection comprises five ‘hero’ diamonds, including The Argyle Everglow™, selected for their unique beauty and named to ensure there is a permanent record of their contribution to the history of the world’s most important diamonds.
