Proud plumage for Milne

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - with Des­mond Eddy

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.
