India’s H.K. Designs and Hari Krishna Exports have become Guinness World Record holders by creating a ring with 50,907 diamonds in it.
The sunflower-shape ring’s diamond weight is 130.19 carats. It has a retail value of $785,645.
The ring took nine months to complete, with each diamond set by a team of expert craftspeople. The computer-aided design (CAD) process alone took four months.
After deciding to embark on this project, H.K. looked at several possible designs, before planning a ring inspired by a sunflower—”known for its beautiful, sunny charm and glow,” according to the company’s press material.
Named the Eutierria—a word that refers to a feeling of becoming one with nature—the ring was made completely out of recycled materials, including 18k recycled gold and diamonds repurposed from customer returns. It has eight parts: four layers of petals, the shank, two diamond discs, and the butterfly.
The ring will be on display at H.K. Designs/Hari Krishna Exports’ booth (#PC-170) at the JCK Las Vegas Show, which will be held June 2–5 in the Venetian hotel.
