Argyle holds a veritable monopoly on the world’s pink diamond market. They conduct aggressive marketing campaigns to drive home this advantage, driving an already existing robust demand through the roof.
On top of that, a pink diamond has long been considered one of the rarest colored diamonds. (source: S.C. Hofer, Pink Diamonds from Australia, 1985).

The combination of extreme popularity and a more extreme scarcity (a year’s hard-work in the mines hardly yields a handful) makes the pink diamonds pretty expensive.
Size of the diamond and its color intensity are the key factors influencing the value of pink diamonds. Prices just explode with the increase in size and color intensity.

An extraordinary rare and exceedingly beautiful 24.78 carat pink diamond, once in the possession of American jeweler Harry Winston (who sold it to a private collector), has been described as “one of the greatest diamonds ever discovered”.
Graded as “Fancy Intense Pink” (the best rating for a pink diamond) by the Gemological Institute of America, it was not seen on the open market after being sold by Harry Winston about 60 years ago.
The emerald cut diamond with rounded corners and mounted on a silver ring with two flanking shield-shaped diamonds surfaced after sixty years and was sold by Sotheby on sixteenth November 2010 for US $46 million (£29 million). This pink diamond became the most expensive single jewel ever sold at auction.
“What makes it so immensely rare is the combination of its exceptional color and purity with the classic emerald-cut,” said David Bennett, chairman of Sotheby’s European and the Middle Eastern jewelry departments. “It’s a style of cutting normally associated with white diamonds and one that is so highly sought-after when found in rare colors such as pink and blue.”
It is so profoundly rare that the jewel has been classified as type IIa diamond, which makes up of less than two percent of the world’s diamonds.
Despite its rarity, the diamond remained un-named for all this time. Laurence Graff, of Graff Diamonds who purchased it for the record price named it Graff Pink.
Ben Affleck purchased a 6.1 carat pink diamond ring for his engagement to Jennifer Lopez and David Beckham gave his wife, former Spice Girl Victoria “Posh” Adams a $1.8 million pink diamond apology ring following his public indiscretion.
