WHY ARE PINK DIAMONDS COVETED?
Less than 1% of the Argyle mines production were pink and having exhausted
economical production, the Argyle mine ceased operations in November 2020 making
the already rare and coveted Argyle Pink Diamonds even more in demand resulting
in their value significantly increasing year on year.
