An elaborate floral-shaped ring sporting 12,638 tiny diamonds has earned a place in the Guinness World Records – but its creator has no plans to sell his priceless design just yet.
“It’s wearable and comfortable,” said 25-year-old Harshit Bansal, who described his audacious creation as a dream project.
“The Marigold – The Ring of Prosperity”, weighs a little over 165 grams (5.8 ounces).
Bansal said he got the idea two years ago while studying jewelry design in Gujarat’s Surat, India’s diamond hub.
“My target was always more than 10,000 diamonds. I trashed many designs and concepts over the years to finally zero in on this,” Bansal said.
