The Argyle Everglow
在2017年被阿蓋爾鑽石礦命名為「Argyle Everglow」，這顆重達2.11克拉的瑰寶不但是阿蓋爾鑽石礦有史以來其中一顆最漂亮的紅鑽，亦是有歷史記錄以來十大紅鑽之一。它的顏色為紅鑽中色彩最高級別的Fancy Red，色澤飽和度與色調非常平衡，鮮豔奪目同時亦美豔照人，更甚是其高淨度VS2級別是紅鑽中極之少有，使其更具收藏價值。
Argyle Everglow出產于澳洲的阿蓋爾鑽石礦區，多年來全球紅鑽的新開採量接近90%是來自阿蓋爾鑽石礦區。該鑽石礦每年會將其當年出產、最高級別的一批鑽石安排供少數合資格買家競標，而Argyle Everglow是2017年阿蓋爾鑽石礦區競標的Lot One，亦即為2017年全年所有Argyle鑽石中價值最高的珍品。
Argyle Everglow 在2019年5月由中國收藏家從胡良利(萬益)珠寶行處以高達港幣1.5億元購得。這標誌著我國的收藏家在消費能力、眼光及審美方面都已經達到國際水準，與西方貴族在財富管理及承傳方面已可等量齊觀。
The Rarest Red Diamond Ever Trades A Record-Breaking Deal For HK$150 Million
‘Red Diamond’ is the rarest among all-natural colored diamonds – world rare treasure.
Named "Argyle Everglow" by the Argyle Diamond Mine in 2017, this 2.11-carat jewel is not only one of the Most Beautiful Red Diamonds in world’s history of the Argyle Diamond Mine, but also one of the Top Ten Red Diamonds in world’s history. Its color is the highest grade of the Red Diamond Fancy Red, the color saturation and color tone are perfectly balanced. It is bright, eye-catching and beautiful. Moreover, its high clarity VS2 level is so rare in the red diamonds that makes it highly collectible.
Argyle Everglow is produced in the Argyle Diamond Mine in Australia – close to 90% of the world’s New Red Diamonds have been extracted from the Argyle diamond mining area for many years. The diamond mine will annually produce the highest level of diamonds for a limited number of eligible buyers, and ‘Argyle Everglow’ is the Lot One for the 2017 Argyle Diamond Mine, which means it is the most valuable treasure among all the Argyle diamonds in the year of 2017.
As the production of the Argyle Diamond Mine in Australia is soon coming to an end, the diamond mine is expected to be discontinued after 2020. Therefore, the supply of red diamonds will further decline sharply on a very rare basis. The value of red diamond investment collection, especially the value of red diamonds produced by Argyle, is expected to continue to increase drastically.
Argyle Everglow was purchased by a Chinese Collector from Wu Leung Lee (Man-Yick) Jewellery Co. in May 2019 for up to HK$150 million. This indicates that Chinese Collectors have reached to the International Standards in terms of the ‘Spending Power’, ‘Vision’ and ‘Aesthetics’, and they have been able to compete with Western aristocrats with regard to wealth management and inheritance.
