With viewings by invitation only, the “Signature Tender” is the most awaited annual event in the diamond world, each year’s collection showcasing the best 60 or so of Argyle mine’s past 12 months diamond production. Each diamond from the Argyle Tender has been painstakingly crafted by the master cutters at Rio Tinto’s facility to try and bring out the absolute best from the rough crystal, not only in terms of colour but also, brilliance, symmetry and sparkle. These diamonds are sought after by diamond dealers, collectors and connoisseurs the world over and can command record prices, often in excess of US$ 1 million per carat. As they are extremely limited, exceedingly rare and highly prized, people sometimes see them as an investment for the future.
Mondial is proud to have been custodian of some of the most unique and exceptional diamonds from the Argyle Pink Diamonds Signature Tender over the years. The selection below includes current treasures such as the beyond rare “Mondial Red” round brilliant cut and “Deep Violetish Blue” pear shape.
