Rio Tinto has unveiled the largest Fancy Red diamond in the history of its Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender, during a world exclusive preview in New York.
The 2.11 carat polished radiant cut diamond, known as The Argyle Everglow™, is the centrepiece of the 2017 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender – an annual showcase of the rarest diamonds from Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine.
This exceptional red diamond represents rarity within rarity
Unprecedented in size, color and clarity, The Argyle Everglow has been assessed by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) as a notable diamond with a grade of Fancy Red VS2. In the 33-year history of the Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender, there have been fewer than 20 carats of Fancy Red certified diamonds sold.
“The Argyle Everglow represents rarity within rarity and will drive global demand from collectors and connoisseurs in search of the incomparable.”
The collection in this tender comprises five “hero” diamonds selected for their unique beauty and named to ensure there is a permanent record of their contribution to the history of the world’s most important diamonds.
