The Inspiration Behind
Dreamtime Australian Diamonds

Aboriginal Heritage

The Traditional Owners of the Argyle Diamond Mine are the Gija and Mirriwung people. The location of the Argyle mine is called Barramundi Gap and is a sacred women’s site.

Dreamtime or ‘Ngarranggarni’ stories provide a strong belief system through which indigenous people understand their country and their relationship to it.

Barramundi Dreaming Story (Mirriwung)

A barramundi lives in the river at Tharram (Bandicoot Bar). One day, a crane fishing for food sees the barramundi and spears it with her beak, but is unable to catch it as the barramundi swims quickly away.

The barramundi travels up the Dunham River, past where the Warmun community is today, and on to Glen Hill where she scrapes off some of her scales as she passes through. Today, these scales can be seen near the Glen Hill community’s first gate as white rock on the hillside, most clearly visible in the late afternoon.

Here the barramundi is spotted by some women who try to catch her using nets made of rolled Spinifex grass (a traditional Mirriwung fishing method known as Gelganyem).

But the barramundi flicks her tail and jumps over the trap. She escapes between the two hills of Barramundi Gap and heads down to Bow River, where she comes to rest as a white rock. This rock, which can still be seen today, is quite different from all the others at Bow River.

The Dreamtime Story

The Dreamtime Story

Diamonds are, without a doubt, one of the world’s most beautiful natural resources. Dreamtime Australian Diamonds are imbued with the stories and legends which have danced across the earth above them for millions of years. Which makes them so much more than just diamonds.

Every Dreamtime Australian Diamonds is earthed carefully from the Argyle Diamond Mine in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. These stones are truly one-of-a-kind.

They vary in colour and represent the warm colours and rich mythology of the Australian land. They are all tracked from the ground they came from, so you know absolutely that they are natural and untreated Australian stones.

Dreamtime Australian Diamonds come in a visually striking palate of colours, which has created the perfect platform for the design of Dreamtime jewellery. Dreamtime Australian Diamonds designers are inspired by the diamonds’ natural warmth, which is reflective of the warmth of the land.

Knowing you have something from Australia that’s been in creation for millions of years, and specifically from the Kimberley region - that makes owning a Dreamtime Australian Diamonds really special.
