    Pink diamonds are considered among the rarest hues of diamonds, where the best pink diamonds are known to be mined at Argyle in the remote north of Western Australia, also the world's largest producer of natural coloured diamonds. Incredibly, only 5% of diamonds mined from Argyle are of gem quality, and less than 1% of those are pink. Every one million carats of rough diamonds mined typically yields only one carat of gem-quality pink diamond. Even rarer are the highly saturated pink diamonds which are graded as 'Intense' or 'Vivid' and those that are over 0.50ct are truly scarce. With the expectancy of the Argyle mine's supply of diamonds anticipated to continue only until 2020, good quality, fancy pink diamonds are expected to remain highly sought after and increasingly difficult to find.
