New single ring made of 12,638 diamonds is out, according to Guinness World Records book.
The ring, Marigold, or “The Ring of Prosperity,” has a circular band with an ornate floral design, complete with thousands of 38.08 carat natural diamonds.
It weighs a little over 165 grams or 5.8 ounces.
The previous record — 7,801 diamonds in a ring — was also set in India by the Hyderabad-based jeweler Hallmark Jewellers.
The 25-year-old Harish Bansal, who designed the ring over a period that stretched for several months, was overwhelmed on his work being recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records.
While speaking to reporters, the UP-based jeweller is the founder of Renani Jewels in Meerut, India, set the record with his impressive design on December 21, 2020.
Bansal told Guinness that he was first was inspired to break the diamond-studded record in 2018, while he studied jewelry design in Surat, India.
“Two years later, his company completed the ring design on November 30, 2020,” he said.
According to him, he has no intention of selling the ring. The ring is “priceless”, he said. “It is a matter of pride,” added Bansal, who began contemplating over its design since two years ago.
