Pink diamonds from the Argyle Diamond mind

White Argyle Diamonds are now available at Gem Array Jewellers, allowing you the ability to design your own masterpiece using Australian diamonds.

They are available starting from 0.30 carats, each stone is accompanied with an authenticity card and a GIA certificate so you can be assured you have purchased a genuine Australian Diamond.

These precious diamonds are owned in full by Rio Tinto and located in the remote East Kimberley Region of Western Australia. They have 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 their signature stone and is coveted by diamond experts and collectors globally.

You may wonder why it’s so special to have in your possession, they are in fact hard to come by, only 5% of the diamonds 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 a diamond will truly become a rarity as the mine closed in November 2020 due to the low production of gem quality diamonds.

The lease tenants the traditional lands of the Gija and Mirriuwung people. In 2005, an Indigenous Land Use Agreement and Participation Agreement was set up between the mine and the Traditional Owners of the mining lease area. It was an important step towards sustainability goals and put in place a formal relationship that will help deliver long- term economic benefits to Aboriginal communities in the East Kimberley region.
