Loose Argyle Pink Diamonds For Sale Broome
What could be more appealing than owning a beautiful and consistently appreciating part of Western Australia’s history. The Argyle Diamond mine is the largest producer of loose Argyle Pink Diamonds and they are for sale in Broome! The mine has been the source of 90%+ of all world loose pink diamond production for many years and its closure will see the opportunities to acquire one disappear over the next few years. Once they are sold then an owner will almost be able to name their price and it is anticipated the stones will continue to be an excellent investment. The rarity and scarcity of these diamonds should ensure an active secondary market will exist into the future.
A quality regular pink diamond can be expensive, but the quality of the Argyle Pink Diamonds is generally greater and a certified Argyle Pink Diamond commands a premium of 10 – 30% above the price of a regular pink diamond. For example a rare 1 carat stone in a Fancy Pink colour could easily be valued at over $200,000 or far more for a round stone. The rareness of large pink diamonds has led to stones being cut to maximise the diamond weight (carat) but sometimes not being a regular shape. This can add to the complexity of investing in a Certified Argyle Pink Diamond and why you should always consult a professional skilled in the sale of Argyle Pink Diamonds.
For investment the choice of the diamond is crucial as less than 10% of Argyle Pink Diamonds are suitable to purchase as an investment grade diamond. As with any investment the profit is always made at the purchase, the same is true for real estate and shares.

What Do I Need To Know To Buy The Best Loose Argyle Pink Diamonds For Sale In Broome
As with all things of natural beauty there is no one colour or shade of pink diamonds. Each one is a unique natural treasure. However there are three criteria to determine the grade of the colour of a pink diamond and these are as follows:
Hue – This is the term used to describe the most dominant colour of the diamond. Very few stones are fully pink in colour and they contain a secondary or modifying colour or tint. The ranges of hues, which can be found in pink diamonds, vary from brownish-pink to purplish-pink. The only secondary occurring hues in pink diamonds are orange, brown and purple. It is possible for a pink diamond to have both brown and orange overtones in the same stone. The most sought after pink diamonds are those which exhibit pure pink colour, although the purple-pink diamonds are also very highly regarded.
Saturation – This is the term used to describe refers to the distribution of colour in the diamond. There are eight levels of intensity that pink diamonds can occur, faint pink, very light pink, light pink, fancy light pink, fancy pink, fancy intense pink, fancy vivid pink, fancy deep/dark pink. The more vivid intensity pink diamonds are far rarer than the rest and they are the most expensive.
Tone – The amount of lightness or darkness in the diamond. The range of tone extends from lightness to darkness of the hue, or primary colour of the diamond.
Provenance – When assessing a pink diamond for investment the provenance and rarity are the two main factors that need to be considered. This is especially important when establishing the secondary resale value. Scarcity and rarity add to the prestige of an item and therefore the value and this is especially true for investment grade pink diamonds. This category is the one most likely to appreciate at the highest level over time. To maximise the increase in value, the diamond’s intrinsic value will be compounded by the degree of rarity. At this level of investment it should be understood that small graduations in colour, size or clarity can have huge differences in value. The Auction house “Christies” advises if a pink diamond does not have a Argyle Diamond Mien provenance then it sell for 50% less than a genuine Argyle Certified Diamond. There are many issues to consider when purchasing an investment grade pink diamond. The main one is it must be an Argyle Certified diamond to maximise your return.
