Argyle White Diamonds are precious and sought-after diamonds that come from the Argyle Diamond Mine which is owned in full by Rio Tinto and located in the remote East Kimberley Region of Western Australia. The Argyle Diamond Mine has to date produced more than 800 million carats of diamonds. It is the world’s largest producer of natural coloured diamonds, including white, champagne, cognac, blue as well as the very rare pink diamond, which has become Argyle’s signature stone and is coveted by diamond experts and collectors globally.
You may wonder why it’s so special to have an Argyle Diamond in your possession, they are in fact hard to come by, only 5% of the diamonds from the Argyle Mine are gem quality, the remaining production is made up of near gem quality accounting for 40% and the remaining 55% is used for industrial purposes. Owning an Argyle diamond piece will truly become a rarity as the mine is set to close by 2020 due to the low production of gem quality diamonds.
