“Ballare” 18ct Rose & White Gold, Argyle Pink & White Diamond Cluster Ring
WINNER OF THE 2019 AUSTRALIAN JEWELLERY AWARDS
Reminiscent of a ballerina’s tutu while in motion, this 18ct rose and white gold cluster ring features a centrepiece round brilliant cut white diamond, weighing 0.51ct. The centre stone is surrounded by 10 round brilliant cut Argyle pink diamonds, weighing 0.49ct.

The ring is pave set with graduating round brilliant cut white diamonds. It features a highly detailed Cathedral window pierced on the underside.
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.
