Sydney: Australian jeweller J Farren-Price is showcasing the first jewellery piece crafted from a new collection of rare pink diamonds from Argyle. Known as The Argyle Heritage Collection™, the first masterpiece, The Argyle Lotus™ ring, is the debut jewel of the collection and comprises 3.34 carats of Argyle Pink Diamonds™, complemented by 3.82 carats of white diamonds.
The Argyle LotusTM will be available for sale for A$930,000 through J Farren-Price’s store in Sydney. The delicate floral creation is set in 18-karat rose gold, with the graceful petals unfurling from a 0.12-carat Fancy Blue Argyle Diamond™ nestled on the underside, as a symbol of water.

The Argyle pink diamonds range in size from 0.30 carat to above 1 carat, including three former Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender™ diamonds.
