Interview with Kalleh Levonian




For Kalleh Levonian, there has always only ever been one career path: to work with coloured diamonds.

“It was all I have ever wanted to do,” explains the director of KL Diamonds, adding, ”It’s a niche market and it’s a lot more interesting than dealing in whites. I’m constantly inspired by the different hues.”

While Levonian joined the family business more than 20 years ago, his father has been dealing with coloured stones ever since the Argyle diamond mine began operating in 1983.

It’s this history that Levonian says enables the supplier to offer such a comprehensive range of diamonds. “We’ve come across so many stones over the years of being in business. The assortment of colours is quite incredible.”

While KL Diamonds’ inventory appears to cover almost every colour of the rainbow – including yellow, cognac, champagne, green, silver, blue, purple, orange and even extremely rare red diamonds – the supplier currently specialises in pinks. 

“If we’re talking about our supply, then pink stones definitely make up a large proportion of that. They are sourced from both the Argyle diamond mine in Western Australia as well as from international sites,” Levonian explains.

He adds that pink diamonds, as well as other coloured stones, lend themselves to almost any piece of fine quality jewellery: “They work well with everything. Right now, however, we’re seeing a lot of people requesting rings.”

Although 90 per cent of business for KL Diamonds comes from coloured stones – all of which are natural – the supplier also deals in white diamonds.

KL Diamonds is divided into two divisions: one that sells loose polished stones; and another that offers a manufacturing service. 

Interesting fact …
There is an abundance of coloured diamonds in our own backyards - they can’t be found anywhere else in the world.
