"I think every girl or woman would love to own a diamond set as it personifies the true love and has its own significance. So there is nothing different with me... At the end of the day I am a woman and I would love to wear diamonds," Mithali told<em> IANS</em> in a statement. <p></p> <p></p>Mithali is the official ambassador for the new campaign of Rio Tinto s Australian Diamonds programme that helps promote the popularity of diamonds in fashion and bridal jewellery, particularly for younger Indian consumers. <p></p>The campaign in India highlights a new range of affordable bridal and fashion jewellery from the company's Argyle diamond mine in Australia. <p></p> <p></p>"I am delighted to be a part of this Australian Diamonds campaign. Diamonds were once only accessible to kings and queens and Hollywood royalty. A campaign such as this makes these sought-after diamonds far more affordable to a broader range of consumers across India," said Mithali. <p></p> <p></p>The jewellery collections showcased in the campaign titled "As Real as You" are available across 63 retailers in India and include designs using uncut diamonds from the Argyle mine.
