Rio Tinto’s Argyle pink diamonds have made their debut in an Asprey tiara at the inaugural Masterpieces London Fair – a unique showcase of the most covetable objects on earth.
According Argyle Pink Diamonds partner John Glajz, the tiara, which features 178 pink diamonds, combines “the mystique and romance of a bygone era with the design of a contemporary treasure”.
“This is truly a unique piece that showcases beautifully the colours, sizes and shapes of rare pink diamonds from the Argyle mine,” he said.
Argyle Pink Diamonds business manager Josephine Archer added that the tiara demonstrates the importance of exclusive design and quality craftsmanship when transforming “rare and precious diamonds into important pieces of jewellery”.
“We are delighted with the design of the tiara which has the simple yet subtle mystique that all great jewels should have,” she said.
Rio Tinto’s Argyle Diamond Mine in Western Australia produces virtually the entire supply of the world’s rare pink diamonds.
