Hosted in the historic Golden Hall of the eighteenth century Moltkes Palace in Copenhagen, international media and invited guests attended the world first preview of the Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender 2016.
Celebrating the ties that bind Australia and Denmark, the Tender preview and two-day jewellery exhibition glittered in the majestic setting. Hosted in collaboration with Hartmann’s, Copenhagen’s premier jeweller, the US$20 million exhibition unveiled specially handcrafted jewels including the statement Otto Ring, featuring two Argyle pink diamonds from prior year Tenders, and the Argyle Blossom Ring, a fusion of five Tender diamonds in pink and violet hues collected over a period of more than 10 years.
The highly anticipated unveiling of The Argyle Violet, the eminent hero of the 2016 Tender, aptly titled ‘The Chroma Collection’, left many astounded by its hypnotic and seductive beauty. Discovered in 2015 as a 9.17 carat rough diamond and masterfully polished into an incomparable 2.83 carat oval shape, it is the largest violet diamond ever unearthed in Australia – a history making violet diamond that is impossibly rare.
