How many diamonds do you think you could wear on your finger?
If you’re getting engaged in 2021, you might think that a ring with one beautiful Princess-cut diamond is enough. Some gifts might provide a handful of these gorgeous gems, set in a beautiful design that reflects the wearer’s personality.
Rennai Jewels in Meerut, India, decided that a ring with 12,638 diamonds was the best way to show love. Harshit Bansal is the designer of this masterpiece, introducing it to the public late in 2020.
It currently holds the Guinness World Record for the most diamonds on a single ring.
The Ring Weighs almost Six Ounces (165g)
Bansal named the diamond ring “Marigold.” It’s also referred to as the “Ring of Prosperity.”
The foundational design uses an ornate flower to serve as the resting place for most of the diamonds. It employs thousands of 38-carat natural gemstones to create a one-of-a-kind sparkle.
The previous record-holder in this category was Hallmark Jewelers, which is also based in India. They designed a piece that contained 7,801 diamonds.
Each petal in the ring’s design is unique. It took Bansal about two years to complete the work on this piece, which he started almost immediately after graduating from local jewelry design courses.
Underneath the diamonds is an 18-karat gold surface. Bansal only used conflict-free gemstones for the stunning ring.
All of the diamonds are of VVS clarity and in the E to F color range.
The Creator Says the Ring Is Wearable
When asked about what it was like to wear such a massive creation, Bansal said that the jewelry was comfortable and wearable.
His target was always to exceed 10,000 diamonds with the design. Prospective buyers have already inquired about the piece, but Bansal says he’s not interested in selling it at the moment.
“It’s a matter of pride,” he said in a recent interview. “It’s priceless.”
