Indian Jeweller Enters Guinness Book of World Records For Designing Ring With 12,638 Diamonds

New Delhi: Indian jewellery designer, Harish Bansal (25), created an elaborate floral-shaped ring sporting 12,638 tiny diamonds, which has earned a place in the Guinness World Records.

Called “The Marigold – The Ring of Prosperity”, the chunky circular band weighs a little over 165 grams (5.8 ounces).

“It’s wearable and comfortable,” said 25-year-old Harish Bansal.

Bansal said he got the idea two years ago while studying jewellery design in western city of Surat, India’s diamond hub.

In a statement, his company said that each tiny petal in the ring’s eight-layer flower design was unique.

The previous record determined by Guinness, also set in India, was for a ring containing 7,801 diamonds.
