Harshit Bansal, a jeweller from India, founder of Renani Jewels in Meeryt, has set Guinness World Record as he made a ring with 12, 638 diamonds.
The Marigold, also known as “The Ring of Prosperity”, has a circular band with an ornate floral design bejewelled with thousands of 38.08 carat natural diamonds.
In Indian culture, it is believed that the Marigold flower brings prosperity and luck to people, according to Guinness World Record.
The previous record — 7,801 diamonds in a ring — was also set in India by the Hyderabad-based jeweler Hallmark Jewellers.
Bansal told Guinness that he was first was inspired to break the diamond-studded record in 2018, while studying jewelry design in Surat, India.
Two years later, on November 30, 2020, his company completed the ring design.
