The Argyle Diamond mine, owned by Rio Tinto, typically known as the world’s leading supplier of natural pink diamonds, is featuring 3 red diamonds as the centerpiece of it’s 2013 diamond collection, known annually as the “Argyle Tender”. The tender shows the finest lot of diamonds from this year’s production from the Argyle mine.

“Never before has Rio Tinto displayed a red diamond in their annual tender, and this year they’ve got three... it’s a showcase almost as rare as the red diamonds themselves,” remarked Jeff Kushner, President of Genesis Rare Diamonds’, Toronto Canada offices. “Rio Tinto and the Argyle Mine always have an impressive display arranged at their tender each year, but this year’s catalog is impressive to say the least”.

Among the red stones is the “Argyle Phoenix”, a 1.56 carat round diamond, named for the newly commissioned Argyle underground mine.

Josephine Johnson, Argyle Pink Diamonds manager, added: “The intrinsic beauty and unrivaled colour intensity of this red diamond is symbolic of its East Kimberley birthplace and the treasures that lie within the depths of the new underground mine.” (Professional, May 2013)

In addition to the brilliance of the red diamond centerpieces is, for the first time in eight years, a 3 carat plus diamond, the 3.02 carat radiant cut, Fancy Intense Orangey-Pink Diamond, named the Argyle Imperial.

Rounding out the featured stones of the 64 piece collection, is a blue heart shaped diamond, noted at 0.71 carats, called the Argyle Celestial, along with a matching heart shaped fancy pink stone from the collection.

All told, the 2013 Argyle Tender will include 58 pink, 3 red, and 3 blue diamonds. Truly, a unique showing for the natural colour diamond industry.

“A showing of this many high quality natural colour diamonds would be special unto itself,” notes the Genesis Rare Diamonds’ director, himself an attendee at the 2010 showcase, “...but the Argyle Tender has special provenance, quality, and the rare and unique opportunity to view, and bid upon the rarest and finest diamonds anywhere to be found worldwide. Our customers are avid buyers of Argyle’s pink diamonds, and this showing is top-tier.”
