The Perth Mint has presented Argyle Treasures™, a stunning bespoke ring handcrafted from the finest 18k Australian Origin Gold® and featuring 285 rare Argyle Pink Diamonds™ and four blue Argyle Diamonds™.
Inspired by the captivating landscape of Western Australia’s Kimberley region, Argyle Treasures™ features a matching pair of Vivid Pink oval shape diamonds totalling 0.75 carats and 0.03 carats of blue diamonds, amid a further 2.11 carats of pink diamonds, all from the famed Argyle Diamond Mine. The diamonds are set in The Perth Mint’s Australian Origin Gold® with all the precious metal being responsibly sourced solely from Australian gold mines.
As a longstanding Argyle Pink Diamonds Select Atelier™ The Perth Mint has offered many beautiful luxury jewellery pieces, but Argyle Treasures™ is the first to be designed in-house in collaboration with Argyle Pink Diamonds Icon Partner™, John Glajz.
The captivating design symbolises the spectacular sunsets over the vast deserts and gorges of the untouched and hauntingly beautiful East Kimberley region, with a glint of cool blue representing the water of Lake Argyle.
The Perth Mint General Manager Minted Products Neil Vance said the ring was a unique collector’s item which highlighted the incredible natural resources Australia had to offer.
“Argyle Treasures™ showcases the world’s rarest colour diamonds which are found in only one place in the world, and we are so fortunate that place is right here in Western Australia,” Mr Vance said.
