Rio Tinto’s Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender 2015, known as the “Connoisseur’s Collection”, is being showcased in Hong Kong as part of its global tour, and has attracted global demand, with strong interest from collectors, connoisseurs, and luxury jewellers who gathered in Hong Kong for its annual watch and jewellery fair. The tender offers 65 of the world’s rarest pink and red diamonds, weighing a total of 44.14 carats, and includes four Fancy Red diamonds. Five heroes feature in the collection, which were selected for their beauty and named to ensure there is a permanent record of their contribution to the history of the world’s most important diamonds.

Rio Tinto Diamonds & Minerals chief executive Alan Davies said “It is wonderful to bring such a magnificent diamond collection to Hong Kong and to see the genuine excitement for this truly rarefied segment of the global diamond market. The Chinese market is very important to Rio Tinto’s diamonds business and showcasing the rarest pink and red diamonds in Hong Kong is an important part of our world tour.”

Argyle Pink Diamonds manager, Josephine Johnson said “The four Fancy Red diamonds in the 2015 collection are at the pinnacle of rarity, and with their beautiful red colour - a symbol of good fortune - they are capturing the imagination of the Chinese market.”

The names of some of the best diamonds in the Tender have been inspired by the world of ballet in recognition of Argyle Pink Diamonds partnership with The Australian Ballet. They are:

- Argyle Prima™ - a 1.20 carat Fancy Red pear shaped diamond coveted for its unique combination of size, shape, colour and clarity which is rarely seen in the rarefied fancy coloured diamond world

- Argyle Aurora™ - a 1.47 carat Fancy Red oval shaped diamond, named in honour of Princess Aurora from The Sleeping Beauty

Argyle Allegro™ - a 0.79 carat Fancy Red radiant shaped diamond, named after the brisk and lively ballet movement and reminiscent of the red colour dancing within this diamond

- Argyle Spectre™ - a 1.93 carat Fancy Vivid Purplish Pink shield shaped diamond. The vibrant pink colour and strong shape of this diamond is inspired by the ballet Le Spectre de la rose

- Argyle Élevé™ - 1.44 carat Fancy Intense Pink emerald shaped diamond, inspired by the ballet movement of rising high without bending and reflecting of the perfect long lines and elegance of the emerald shape.

The diamonds will travel to New York and then head back to Australia. Tender bids close on 21 October 2015.
