Argyle Pink Diamonds
Archer & Holland are one of very few places in Adelaide to stock rare Argyle Diamonds. These diamonds are sourced from the Argyle Diamond Mine in Western Australia. The mine, run by Rio Tinto, has confirmed they will be ceasing all operations in 2020.
Since the first Argyle Pink Diamonds were revealed from the ancient beauty of their Western Australian birthplace, they have been valued for their rarity; coveted by many but owned by few.
Not only are they beautiful, but their high appreciation, small production supply and rarity makes them an incredibly rare investment opportunity.
With a 100 year legacy, Bill and Meredith from Archer & Holland have a wealth of knowledge of fine jewellery in Adelaide. Bill has over 40 years of jewellery handcrafting experience, while Meredith is a qualified diamond grader and pearl rethreader. Both have intimate knowledge of Argyle Pink Diamonds, whether through investing or handmaking pieces incorporating the precious diamonds.
Appointments can be made with Bill and Meredith to talk about investing in Argyle Pink Diamonds. We also host very special evenings and days which are regularly promoted in our newsletters. Sign up below to be kept up to date with these special sessions.
Valuations & Insurance
All valuations are done on the premises by Archer & Holland’s NCJV Registered Valuer (National Council of Jewellery Valuers) and Gemmologist (FGAA).
Jewellery is examined and assessed using gemmological equipment and procedures to provide a scientific analysis of precious and semi-precious gems. Our Valuer and Gemmologist have up-to-date knowledge and ongoing training in key areas of gemmological studies including:
- Gemstone grading
- Detection of synthetics
- Techniques used in jewellery manufacturing
- Detecting reproduced jewellery and genuine antique pieces
All valuation certificates are presented on a professional document including a full report and colour photograph of the item. The certificate will also state the purpose and reason of the valuation and the type of market on which it was based.
The most common type of valuation is a retail valuation which is often used for insurance purposes. Other types of valuation include, but are not limited to:
- quality assessments
- deceased estates
- second-hand sales
- forced sales
All ring valuations come with a free professional clean and security claw/setting check.
