The topic of pink diamonds is a riveting (and vast) one. For this reason, my aim is to share a few facets specific to Argyle Pink Diamonds that may not be as well known - and surprise and delight!
Argyle Pink Diamonds from Australia have been awarded the @PositiveLuxury Butterfly Mark. This means that each certified diamond is sustainably and ethically sourced - protecting both people and resources.
In the current dialog of “natural versus lab grown” gemstones, one factor not often considered is a human one. Natural resources found in remote parts of the world are critical to those local economies and communities. Being conscious about what “ingredients” are in jewelry and choosing to support mining communities that follow ethical and sustainable practices (artisanal or industrial for any gemstone) enables meaningful and positive impact in the world.
Beyond being empowered to know what questions to ask when buying any gemstone, many brilliant designers are happy to create thoughtfully designed bespoke jewelry with materials that are as beautiful as they are ethically and sustainably sourced.
As always, I would be delighted to help you make an informed decision on a gemstone or bespoke jewel you will LOVE!
As we grow ever more conscious of where our food is grown and how our clothes are made, I believe knowing our jewelry “ingredients” is equally relevant.
Be it diamonds or precious metal, JFine designs jewelry using material from the most ethical mines. Their close partnership with Argyle Pink Diamonds is an example of this. Every stone has a provenance and the chain of custody is known from the time it leaves the mine to the moment it is enjoyed by the person who wears it.
For me, this Argyle Pink Diamond pendant symbolizes the brilliant power of women everywhere who are rising stars in every field and industry that contribute to positive change in the world!
Think pink and the dynamic power of women when you see Kristin Hanson’s Argyle Pink Peony Ring on your finger!
Kristin’s aesthetic is beautifully feminine and she shares her deep knowledge of classical European goldsmith techniques and creative philosophies with other women who are emerging designers. Cheers to women supporting women!
While pink diamonds are very rare, they occur in a wide spectrum of hues from the palest blush through cherry blossom, soft rose to raspberry and a dramatic red. Important color factors regarding value are hue, tone, and saturation. The range is so vast that a proprietary nomenclature is used during the pink diamond grading process.
For example, there are nine color categories, a few of which are: Purplish Pink, Pink, Pink Rosé, Pink Champagne, Blue Violet and Red. Most of these categories include ten variations of light to intense hues. Generally speaking, the more intense colors command a higher market value. Some categories are more rare (Blue Violet and Red) and therefore command an even higher market value.
