Unearthed. Australian art history is made.
In the words of renowned Australian artist; Sharon Davson. I like doing different things. Designing limited edition art pieces celebrating the Argyle Diamond Mine with its famous pink diamonds appealed to me as an Australian artist.
I love the story of how pink diamonds were found atop of ant hills in the Kimberly Ranges of Western Australia. They were simply evicted from the ant nests as ‘abrasive’. The story’s imagery, the ants, it inspired in me a renewed appreciation of this wonderful country. My desire was not to simply create a work of art but to convey the founding history of Argyle pink diamonds which have become emblematic of what it means to be bold, to shine and show the world how amazing we are.
With Australia’s Argyle Diamond Mine preparing to close, time is running out to secure your pink diamond investment. However, in these closing months, the rarity and value of pink diamonds are sure to rise, making now the perfect time to invest.
The story of the Argyle pink diamond is almost as captivating as the rare gem itself. Across the breadth of 1.6 billion years, on a journey from the Earth’s centre, the most intriguing diamond in history emerges, with an exquisite beauty that is both regal and mesmerizing. The Argyle diamond’s spectacular outback origin can be seen in this marvel that depicts every shade of the desert sunset, from a cherry blossom pink, a soft rose, an alluring violet to a dramatic red.
Never before has there been such a unique opportunity to purchase an original work of art by an Australian artist combining precious metals and Argyle pink diamonds. The Argyle Art Coins are spectacular!
Rare Art Releases Platinum Performance …
What an awesome occasion. Two very rare Platinum masterpieces released together.
Scott Brown of Independent Gemological Laboratory attended the Combined Release of Davson’s Limited Edition Platinum Art Coin and the Latest Lotus Bespoke Platinum Edition 410. Davson has had an association with high performance car racing for several decades, including with such great Lotus and Formula One World Champion Drivers such as Emmerson Fittapaldi and Mario Andretti.
“It was the perfect duo event of Platinum Editions. Thank you Lotus. I will let Mario and Emmerson know about the event. I am sure they will smile.” (Davson said) The immediate response and enormous success of Unearthed, has guaranteed a repeat performance in 2020, creating further treasures for centuries to come.
Argyle Pink Diamonds are Forever
The first Argyle Art Coin features Sharon Davson’s uniquely Australian artistic vision.
Davson’s latest – displayed on valuable coins – features the story of the Argyle mine [including the ants] and some of her iconic imagery, such as jigsaw puzzle pieces.
She worked on the project, titled Unearthed, to produce 288 silver coins trimmed in rose gold and set with four Argyle pink diamonds.
The coins will be sold for $7000 each – $2 million overall.
The first coin was made available for viewing in Newcastle in 2019.
Davson said the outback origin of Argyle diamonds were reflected in “every shade of the desert sunset, from cherry blossom pink, soft rose and alluring violet to dramatic red”.
The Argyle mine has been responsible for more than 90 per cent of the world’s pink diamond supply. It’s been operating since 1983. More than 800 million carats of rough diamonds have come from the mine.
The rarity of pink diamonds reflects Davson’s art and makes them a target for investors. Experts say the key is getting the right advice to select a diamond of sufficient beauty, rarity and size. The more vibrant in colour, the more valuable it is.
Davson has only completed 120 paintings in a 40-year art career.
And, yes, she is a fan of diamonds.
“One of the things about diamonds is they really hold their sparkle,” she said.
“A well-cut, good quality diamond will sparkle through everything. Sometimes if you’re feeling a bit down and you’re wearing something that’s beautiful, sparkles and has value, you can look at it and it does actually help maintain confidence.”
