Rio Tinto Diamonds managing director Jean-Marc Lieberherr said “There is strong global interest in our Tender diamonds from both the established and emerging markets. “It is great to be in Hong Kong and see the excitement around this year’s Tender collection. Rarity, beauty, craftsmanship and a very special birthplace are a potent combination for collectors, connoisseurs and fine jewellery specialists.”
Hong Kong is the final destination for the 30th annual Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender which includes four extremely rare Fancy Red diamonds, headlined by the Argyle Cardinal™ - a spectacular 1.21 carat radiant cut Fancy Red diamond.
