Ring encrusted with 12,638 diamonds, which set a Guinness record
(CNN) – How many diamonds can fit in one ring?
The answer, according to the Guinness Book of New Records, is 12638.
Harshit Bansal, founder of Renani Jewels in Meerut, India, set the record with his stunning design on December 21, 2020.
The ring, called Marigold, or “Ring of Prosperity,” has a round band in a flower design, studded with thousands of natural diamonds of 38.08 carats, according to Guinness. It weighs just over 165 grams, or 5.8 ounces.
The previous record – 7801 in a ring – was also set in India by Hyderabad-based Hallmark Jewelers.
Bansal told Guinness that he was first inspired by the diamond-breaking record in 2018 while studying jewelry design in Surat, India. Two years later, his company completed the ring design, on November 30, 2020.
