Rio Tinto unveils eye-catching Argyle Rose

Named the Argyle Rose and valued at $2 million, Rio Tinto has showcased the latest addition to the Argyle Pink Diamonds jewellery collection.

Designed by WA’s Solid Gold Diamonds, the ring features 3.25-carats of Argyle pink and blue fancy colour diamonds encrusted in the shape of a rose, surrounded by white diamonds, and hand-set in platinum and 18-carat gold.

The central attraction of the piece is a rare 1.36-carat, fancy deep pink radiant-cut diamond. It is just one of 12 radiant cut diamonds from the Argyle mine weighing more than one carat with a 1P colour grading.

Rio Tinto Minerals chief executive Sinead Kaufman said: “I am delighted to launch the Argyle Rose. Encapsulating a rich history and an extraordinary provenance, it is both a contemporary treasure and an heirloom for tomorrow.”

She added: “These rare and precious diamonds are one and a half billion years old, from one of the most beautiful places on earth, and the world is simply not producing them anymore.”
