WAAG Diamond Sponsor, Rohan Jewellers invites delegates to join them at their new Mount Lawley studio for a sundowner on Friday 26 November from 6pm to 8pm.

In an exclusive evening with Master Jeweller, Rohan Milne, discover the most intriguing and sought-after diamond in history – the Argyle pink diamond. Admired for their exquisite beauty and provenance, Argyle pink diamonds are recognised as the most esteemed in the world. The evening presents a rare opportunity to preview a selection of remarkable Argyle diamonds and to learn the intricate journey from a rough diamond to the time it is offered for purchase as a polished stone.

Enjoy a relaxed evening, celebrating the beauty of Western Australia, in the beautiful surrounds of the new Rohan Jewellers Gallery in Mt Lawley as you expand your knowledge and deepen your understanding of Argyle diamonds. Since their arrival on the world stage, Argyle diamonds have thrilled, seduced and inspired jewellers and collectors around the world. The Argyle Diamond Mine, located in Western Australia, has been the world’s only consistent source of pink diamonds, accounting for more than 90 percent of the world’s pink diamond supply; although this treasure trove has now closed, Rohan discusses what the gem’s future holds.

Vince Garreffa, Perth’s ‘The Prince of Flesh’ will be on hand to showcase and teach delegates about the art of cooking wagyu beef on the BBQ along with independent wine writer Erin Larkin to showcase an amazing selection of WA wines.

Appointed as an Argyle Pink Diamond Select Atelier™ of only 30 jewellers globally, Rohan Jewellers have access to a wide range of extraordinary Argyle diamonds. With the mine now closed, the diamonds are set to become rarer still.

Tickets are $25pp and include canapes, drinks and entry into the evening door prize of a pair of Argyle champagne stud earrings. A bus will be available to transport delegates from the DoubleTree by Hilton Perth Waterfront to Mount Lawley, departing at 5:40pm. The event will run from 6pm to 8pm.
