Linneys showcases world class collection of coloured diamond jewellery

The largest collection of exquisite fancy coloured diamonds and diamond jewellery ever publicly exhibited in the Southern Hemisphere will make its international debut at luxury jeweller Linneys Perth, Western Australia. Showcased at Linneys Crown Metropol showroom, the collection will be unveiled for the very first time from 13 – 15 October, before travelling to Sydney for private viewings.

Featuring the finest coloured diamonds from the Argyle diamond mine and across the globe, this exclusive showcase represents rarity never before seen. Its presence in Perth places Australia firmly on the map of fine jewellery destinations.

The collection includes more than 75 fine jewellery pieces and important fancy coloured diamonds. The Argyle Violet™, an incredible gem which was the Hero stone of the 2016 Argyle Tender is the highlight of the collection. The Argyle Violet, a 2.83 carat Fancy Deep Greyish Bluish Violet diamond recovered from Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine in the east Kimberley region of Western Australia, is now in a stunning piece of jewellery surrounded by vivid pink diamonds.

The collection also features Argyle Thea™, a 2.24ct Fancy Vivid Purplish Pink diamond which was a signature diamond from the 2016 Tender now set in a classical platinum ring.

Linneys Director David Fardon commented “We are delighted to present such a significant collection of coloured diamond jewellery to our clients and this is the first time in Australia we have seen a jewellery collection valued in excess of $100 million.” The rare pink diamonds from Argyle are highly collectable and have continued to appreciate as the mine moves closer to the end of its mine life.

The collection can be viewed from 13 – 15 October from 10am – 8pm at Linneys Crown Showroom. The collection is then travelling to Sydney and will be available to view by private appointment in Sydney from 19 – 21 October.
