Polnaur is quoted as saying that asking prices were 15% higher than last year so he upped his bids by “20% and more”. Polnaur named his cache the Pink Sunset Collection “in homage to Argyle’s last days”. The highlight of his purchase is the Argyle Sakura, a 1.84 carat pear-shaped fancy vivid purplish pink stone.

The highlight of the lot was a 2.24-carat stone named Argyle Eternity™ – the most valuable Fancy Vivid diamond in the Tender’s 37 year history. It was sold to Hong Kong fancy coloured diamond specialist, Kunming Diamonds.
