Pretty in Pink

Iconic New Zealand jeweller, Partridge Jewellers, is proud to announce its success in securing an Argyle pink diamond: one of the last produced.

You probably know diamonds can come in variations of colours.

What you may not know is that most diamond colouring is caused by the presence of chemical elements such as nitrogen or sulphur that can produce a spectrum of yellows, greens or even blues. Understandably these colourations have varying effects on the stone’s value. And then you have pink diamonds.

A magnitude rarer than most diamonds, pink diamonds have no trace elements. Instead, their beautiful hues are created from intense heat and pressure that distort the stone’s crystal structure. The unique molecular configuration alters the light reflected and therefore we observe the stone as pink. In its 37-year history, the Argyle mine in Western Australia has produced over 90% of the world’s extremely rare, extremely desirable pink diamonds.

Stones emanating from Argyle are also renowned for their stunning vibrancy and clarity. Understandably then, when the Argyle mine concluded its land lease in November 2020 – beginning a process to retore the land and return it to its Miriuwung, Gidja, Malgnin and Wularr custodians – the attraction and future value of its famous pink diamonds is, well, set in stone.

Iconic New Zealand jeweller, Partridge Jewellers, is proud to announce its success in securing an Argyle pink diamond: one of the last produced. The tender process for such a stone is incredibly competitive and, having alluded Partridge’s owner, Grant Partridge, in years past, he is delighted to present this beautiful 0.84 carat modified cushion pink diamond to discerning buyers. The stone, while petite in stature, is utterly captivating, refracting light with a signature pink aura cast onto surfaces.

The stone’s quality has naturally been validated with both a 3 Purplish Pink (3PP) APD grading with just slight inclusion (SI1) and GIA graded Fancy Intense Purplish Pink / SI1 grading. Its rarity and prominence will make it attractive as an investment piece: a rare earthly treasure with a potency of colour that will be keenly sought after by collectors and connoisseurs from around the world. But of course, Partridge Jewellers can also liaise directly with the fortunate buyer of the stone to craft a bespoke piece of jewellery to showcase this intricate work of art.
