Before we go, a quick glimpse at some of the most expensive diamonds on the market. The Australian mining giant, Rio Tinto, is showcasing dozens of the world’s rarest diamonds in Hong Kong, as it seeks to tap into the booming Chinese jewellery market.

Rio Tinto showcased red, pink and blue diamonds in Hong Kong on Thursday. Pink diamonds make up less than 0.03% of global diamond production, and almost all come from the Argyle Diamond Mine in Australia.

The company is showcasing 56 rare coloured diamonds, ahead of what is being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive diamond sale. Hong Kong is regarded as the gateway to key markets for the rare pink diamonds.
