The leading international mining group Rio Tinto is delighted to unveil a limited-edition pink diamond ingot, created to commemorate the Argyle Underground Mine in Western Australia.

The Argyle Diamond Mine now uses the latest in block caving technology to extract more than 90 per cent of the world's pink diamonds, which are sold in a broad range of colours around the globe. 

A selection of the extremely rare pink gems has been carefully hand-set into one of 168 individually numbered pink gold ingots. Each depicts a Boab tree embedded with six Argyle pink diamonds - a reminder that these rare pink gems were formed beneath the earth's surface more than a billion years ago, under the ancient Boab trees in the East Kimberley region of Australia.

Because of their extreme rarity, pink diamonds often command a far higher price than their white counterparts. Each ingot is valued at US$4,880 and will be released for sale worldwide.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
