ABOUT ARGYLE RED DIAMONDS
Red diamonds are the world’s rarest and most valuable diamonds. They are known for their intense colour, which is caused by the presence of impurities in the crystal lattice structure. These red diamonds are highly sought after by collectors and investors due to their scarcity and unique beauty.
The formation of a red diamond is a result of specific geological conditions. They are formed deep within the Earth’s mantle under extreme pressure and temperature. The exact mechanisms behind the formation of a red diamond are still not fully understood, making them even more intriguing.
Red diamonds are primarily found in a few select locations around the world. The Argyle diamond mine in Western Australia is known for producing a small number of red and purplish red diamonds, although they are extremely limited even within this mine. Red diamonds from the Argyle diamond mine are believed to be twenty-five times rarer than a red diamond from any other geographical location, making them the rarest of the rare. Other notable sources of red diamonds include Brazil, Russia, and South Africa.
Due to their extreme desirability and limited numbers, red diamonds command exceptionally high prices in the market. The fundamental distinction of an Argyle red diamond is that it lacks any negative secondary brown, orange, or grey tones. These overtones are often seen in red diamonds from different geographical regions. This quality distinguishes Argyle certified red diamonds as the world’s purest, most saturated red diamonds.
