A young Indian jeweler has smashed the Guinness World Record for the most diamonds set in one ring – a dazzling 12,638.
Harshit Bansal, 25, took the title from another Indian jeweler, Kotti Srikanth, whose 7,801-diamond ring was officially recognized in September 2020.
Harshit, founder of Renani Jewels in Meerut, said he was inspired to set a new record while studying jewelry design in Surat, in 2018.
The ring, which goes by two names – The Marigold and The Ring of Prosperity – has a circular band with an ornate eight-layered floral design.
The total weight of natural diamonds is 38.08 carats. The entire creation weighs just over 165 grams (5.8 oz) – a little heavy for day-to-day wear.
