Rio Tinto debuts biggest red diamond in tender history
"Rio Tinto debuts biggest red diamond in tender history"

There were at least two things to learn at Rio Tinto’s preview of its 2017 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender, held Wednesday in New York.

Number one: this year’s sale of rare colored diamonds from the Argyle mine in Australia contains the biggest fancy red diamond in the tender’s 33-year history.

Number two: one of the world’s best-selling and most well-known authors is an avid collector of red diamonds.

The Argyle Everglow is a 2.11-carat radiant-cut fancy red diamond and is one of five “hero” stones in this year’s Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender. (Hero stones are diamonds of relatively large size and exceptional color, and are the only tender diamonds that Rio Tinto names.)

The other four hero diamonds of this year’s tender, which has been named “Custodians of Rare Beauty,” are:
The Argyle Isla, a 1.14-carat fancy red radiant;
The Argyle Avaline, a 2.42-carat fancy purple-pink cushion;
The Argyle Kalina, a 1.50-carat fancy deep pink oval; and
The Argyle Liberté, a 0.91-carat fancy deep gray-violet radiant-cut diamond.
