Proud plumage for Milne
THOSE living in WA are sure to be aware of Argyle Pink Diamonds, some of the most prestigious and sought-after gems in Australia mined by Rio Tinto.
Given the elite status of these diamonds in the market, Argyle Pink Diamonds works with only a small pool of jewellers, who they call their Select Ateliers, to produce and sell these stunning stones to customers across the globe.
Renowned WA jeweller Rohan Milne is one of only 30 jewellers worldwide who have been named as a Select Atelier for Argyle Pink Diamonds.
He designs one- of- a- kind pieces from his local workshop, as well as being commissioned to sell Argyle's limited edition pieces, like the Argyle Pink Plume pendant, of which only 100 pieces were released.
Milne said he valued his status as a Select Atelier and described working with Argyle Pink Diamonds as the pinnacle of rarity and luxury.
“The inspiration that the Pink Plume draws from the Kimberley native, Gouldian Finch, coupled with the Argyle Pink Diamonds to the same area, creates a provenance that makes it more than just a simple feather necklace,” he said.
“Its design is aesthetically pleasing, with diamonds stationed around the chain that create a statement neckpiece: a work of art.
“It is truly special.”
Rohan Milne’s Pink Plume is inspired by a Kimberley native bird.
