Australian pink diamonds

Written by on 6 January 2016

Recently we have had the pleasure of talking with one of our diamond specialists about the beautifully rare pink diamonds from the Argyle mine in Australia. Even though this mine is actually one of the worlds' largest producers of diamonds, experts believe it maybe closing within the next five years, as these particular stones are so rare that there will barely be any more to find. So, looking down at a tray full of graduating shades of glittering pink diamonds (in only my second week here as a design assistant at Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery), made me appreciate what an amazing and mysterious stone it really is. With such a rare diamond, and having a strong Australian identity, it’s the perfect stone to be used in a bespoke piece of jewellery possibly for an Australian partner, or even as a reminder of a special holiday experienced  together in the wonderful country. If you’d like to read more about this spectacular and increasingly scarce gem, there is a great article here written by Sarah, which covers the diamond and the argyle mine in more detail.
