Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

The largest col­lec­tion of ex­quis­ite fancy coloured di­a­monds and di­a­mond jew­ellery ever pub­licly ex­hib­ited in the south­ern hemi­sphere is be­ing show­cased across Aus­tralia by iconic Aus­tralian jew­eller Lin­neys.

Lin­neys’ di­rec­tor David Far­don said, “Fea­tur­ing the finest coloured di­a­monds from the Argyle di­a­mond mine and across the globe, this ex­clu­sive show­case rep­re­sents rar­ity never be­fore seen.”

The col­lec­tion in­cludes more than 75 fine jew­ellery pieces and im­por­tant fancy coloured di­a­monds. The Argyle Vi­o­let™, an in­cred­i­ble gem which was the Hero stone of the 2016 Argyle ten­der is the high­light of the col­lec­tion. The Argyle Vi­o­let, a 2.83-carat fancy deep grey­ish bluish vi­o­let di­a­mond re­cov­ered from Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine in the east Kimberley re­gion of Western Aus­tralia, is now in a stun­ning piece of jew­ellery sur­rounded by vivid pink di­a­monds.

The col­lec­tion also fea­tures Argyle Thea™, a 2.24-carat fancy vivid pur­plish pink di­a­mond which was a sig­na­ture di­a­mond from the 2016 ten­der now set in a clas­si­cal plat­inum ring.

Far­don added, “We are de­lighted to present such a sig­nif­i­cant col­lec­tion of coloured di­a­mond jew­ellery to our clients and this is the first time in Aus­tralia we have seen a jew­ellery col­lec­tion val­ued in ex­cess of $100 mil­lion.”

The rare pink di­a­monds from Argyle are highly collectable and have con­tin­ued to ap­pre­ci­ate as the mine moves closer to the end of its mine life.

The cen­tre­piece of this ring is a sig­na­ture stone from the 2016 Argyle Pink Ten­der, the Argyle Thea, a 2.24-carat fancy vivid pur­plish pink ra­di­ant-cut di­a­mond. Argyle Thea is com­ple­mented by two side emer­ald-cut di­a­monds.

The pink di­a­mond but­ton ear­rings fea­ture two fancy vivid pur­plish pink cen­tre di­a­monds (0.91 carat) sur­rounded by a fur­ther 16 match­ing heartshaped pink di­a­monds to­talling 0.93 carat.

This ring fea­tures a 2.75-carat fancy in­tense blue green cush­ion-cut di­a­mond com­ple­mented by two fancy pink­ish pur­ple ra­di­ant-cut di­a­monds (0.83 carat).
