Argyle pink diamond ring worth $577k stolen in Australia
The piece of jewellery ring was snatched from a display counter around noon on Saturday and police has been unable to find it so far.
Each of the diamonds in the ring is laser inscribed with a serial number, New South West Police said in a statement Sunday.
About 90% of the world’s pink diamonds are sourced from the Argyle Diamond Mine in the East Kimberly region in Western Australia.
In October last year, a 2.51-carat fancy deep pink gem from the mine sold for more than $2 million — a record price for an Argyle diamond.
