Rio Tinto’s Finest Pink and Red Diamonds Displayed in Asia

Each year Rio Tinto holds the iconic Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender and the choicest diamonds are taken to many cities for viewing prior to the tender.

year’s finest pink and red diamonds from Rio Tinto are now being showcased in Singapore to connoisseurs and collectors from across Asia.

“Headlining the 2019 collection of 64 pink and red diamonds is Lot 1:  Argyle Enigma™,1.75 carat modified radiant Fancy Red diamond,” Rio Tinto said. “With an unrivalled potency of colour, The Argyle Enigma™ is one of three Fancy red diamonds in the collection that will be keenly sought after from across Asia where the colour red is highly symbolic.”

Rio Tinto Vice President of Sales and Marketing Alan Chirgwin said, “We are delighted to showcase this highly sought after collection of rare pink and red diamonds in Singapore. We have seen, and continue to see, strong demand in the Asia market for these rare diamonds where there is a strong appreciation of their ever increasing rarity.”

Virtually the world’s entire supply of pink, red and violet diamonds are mined in Rio Tinto’s Argyle diamond mine in the far north of Western Australia. As the Argyle mine moves rapidly towards closure in 2020 after almost four decades of production, interest in the pink and red diamonds is bound to be heightened.

“The 64 diamonds in the 2019 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender weigh a total of 56.28 carats and include six ‘hero’ diamonds 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,” Rio Tinto stated.

These six hero diamonds are:

Lot 1: Argyle Enigma™,1.75 carat modified radiant Fancy Red diamond

Lot 2: Argyle Amari™, 1.48 carat heart shaped Fancy Vivid Purplish Pink diamond

Lot 3: Argyle Elysian™, 1.20 carat modified cushion shaped Fancy Vivid Pink diamond

Lot 4: Argyle Verity™,1.37 carat oval shaped Fancy Vivid Purplish Pink diamond

Lot 5: Argyle Opus™, 2.01 carat round shaped Fancy Intense Pink diamond

Lot 6: Argyle Avenoir™, 1.07 carat oval shaped Fancy Red diamond

Bids for the 2019 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender close on October 9, 2019,  after the collection is showcased in Perth, Singapore, London and New York.
