A Hyderabad-based jeweller bagged the Guinness World Record for the most number of diamonds set in one ring.
This by Kotti Srikanth, owner of The Diamond Store by Chandubhai. He used a total of 7,801 gems for a flower-shaped ring. He made this specially to make it to the book of records.
The ring named ‘The Divine – 7801 Brahma Vajra Kamalam’. This refers to Brahma Kamalam, a rare flower found in the Himalayas.
“In India, we have a tradition of worshipping our Gods with garlands of flowers and individual flowers are used as an offering. The flowers signify the essence of purity,” Kotti said while talking to the Guinness World Records.
The remarkable piece has a total of six layers, with the first five layers having eight petals each. The last layer features six petals with three filaments in the centre. However the design of the ring started back in September of 2018.
