lloura: An Aboriginal term meaning beautiful or peaceful place.
Such is the name of this 18ct rose and white gold ring, featuring a remarkable 239 Argyle Pink Diamonds.
Inspired by the kaleidoscopes of colour seen in a morning sunbeam, the ring has a total pink diamond weight of 1.7ct, including a centrepiece 0.42ct cushion-cut champagne diamond.
It is set with 8x 2.2mm round brilliant cut diamonds, with a total white diamond weight of 0.32ct.
Argyle Pink Diamonds are rarer and more valuable than ever before, with the 2020 closure of Rio Tinto Argyle mine in Western Australia. In operation for 27 years, the mine was responsible for 90% of the world pink diamonds, not to mention the most vivid and high-quality stones in existence.
