Blue Violet Diamond Colour Classifications

The 9.17-carat Argyle violet rough is the largest of its colour found to date. It took more than 80 to unlock the single band of saturated violet running through the heart of the stone. The resulting 2.83-carat oval is the only violet diamond of this colour in the history of the Argyle Tenders.
