“It is 40 years since the discovery of Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine and it remains the first and only ongoing source of rare
pink diamonds in the world, in history. With the lifecycle of this extraordinary mine approaching its end, we have
seen and continue to see, an unstoppable demand and strong value appreciation for these truly limited edition
