For colored diamond lovers, the annual Rio Tinto Argyle Pink Diamond Tender is the highlight of the year. A select number of special pink diamonds are offered for sale and attract top prices from “by invitation only” buyers worldwide.
While it is hard to beat the beauty and rarity of the pink diamond sale, this year might be the exception. Reo Tinto’s Argyle Diamond Mine has announced the upcoming sale of a unique “Once in a Blue Moon” collection of blue diamonds. The collection will be shown to select, invited buyers during viewings in Perth, Hong Kong and Tokyo leading up to final bids closing on April 8.
Josephine Archer, Sales and Marketing Manager for Argyle Pink Diamonds, noted, “We are excited to showcase our first ever collection of precious blue and violet Argyle diamonds, sourced from several years of production at the mine. It is an enchanting collection that will appeal to connoisseurs and collectors alike.”
The “Once in a Blue Moon” collection will include a variety of colors, single cuts, matched pairs, and smaller diamonds. This event will no doubt raise the awareness of blue diamonds worldwide even though only a limited number of people will see the actual collection.
