Coming from Australia:
It is statistically claimed that more than 90 percent of the world’s pink diamond sources are in Australia and the entire production is coming from Argyle mine in the western parts of Australia.

And this is the reason why these are rare of the rarest. After the final cut and the polishing work done at the headquarters, it is been tendered exclusively. Only 40-50 carats (average of 1 carat) are being tendered and sold at the auction annually. Amongst the mined diamonds at Argyle, 80 percent found are brown diamonds.
