This diamond is thought to originate from the Argyle mine in Western Australia. It doenst come with Argyle certification as Argyle dont certify diamonds that have as many inclusions as this piece. It has been certified by the most respected gem certification Lab in Australia, Spectra as completely natural, with similar test results to known Argyle pink diamonds. Colour is all important and the tone is listed as Fancy Intense and the Hue Purplish Pink which are the best grades for pink diamonds. The clarity only scores a P3, but the inclusions are mainly little white cracks (not black carbon) creating a pink snowball effect. Its a beautiful piece, very different to a traditional inclusion free diamond.
The Argyle mine is closing soon, probably 2020, however we can still supply White, yellow, champagne and pink Australian diamonds in most sizes and tones, so if this one isn't perfect for you let us know and we might be able to find what you are seeking. Argyle pinks are rising in value by 10-20% per year depending on colour intensity. What will happen to prices when the mine closes?
The carbon that makes up this diamond is said to have been created in a star, then billions of years ago it was compressed by nature under the earths mantle into its current atom arrangement. Pinks from the Argyle mine in Australia are thought to have gone through another compression stage during or after creation that slightly changed the atom structure. Its this change that gives the beautiful, unique colour.
