Pink Diamonds are sold at an invitation-only Annual Tender, where the finest 55­‐60 diamonds are revealed at private showings

of their win at the tender deadline.

Calleija - Argyle Pink Diamond Mine Tender

The Pink Diamond Tender

The Annual Argyle Pink Diamond Tender is an invitation-only event highly anticipated by master jewellers around the world since its inception in 1984. During this special event, the finest fifty to sixty Pink Diamonds are unveiled in several private showings across the globe. Buyers are invited to place a sealed, silent bid for their chosen gemstones, each of which is listed with a reserve price. Once all bids are received and the tender deadline has expired, the highest bidder for each stone is notified online and invited to collect their precious Pink Diamond, whether to create a new and spectacular piece, or to add to their collection, waiting for inspiration to strike.

Not just any diamond makes it into the Annual Pink Diamond Tender. In fact, for every one million carats of rough diamonds produced, a mere one polished carat ever makes its way into the tender. Suitable diamonds are generally at least 0.5 carats in weight, after being cut, polished, and certified by two independent grading specialists. During these rigorous tests, the hue, saturation and colour of the diamonds are also determined. This intense scrutiny of each Pink Diamond and the control over its mining, manufacturing, and marketing means that their new custodians can be assured of their ethical trade credentials. Furthermore, each diamond is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

The Argyle Pink Diamond mine is nearing the end of its production and is thought to have less than 10 years of operation remaining before it is brought to a close. With approximately only 500 Pink Diamonds remaining for tender, these exquisite stones have become rarer and more collectible than ever before.
