H.K. Designs and Hari Krishna Exports Pvt. Ltd. from India have become Guinness World Records™ title holders for the Most Diamonds Set In One Ring by creating a ring having 50,907 diamonds. The record was achieved in Mumbai on 11th March 2023.
Ghanshyam Dholakia, Founder & Managing Director of Hari Krishna Exports Pvt. Ltd., said, “I am deeply grateful for the recognition from Guinness World Records. It is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication at Hari Krishna Exports and H.K. Designs. We are proud to showcase our commitment to sustainability and artistic excellence through the Eutierria Ring, and we hope to continue pushing the boundaries of innovation in the jewellery industry.”
The entire process from ideation to crafting took almost 9 months to complete, given the complexity of crafting a ring with more than 50,000 diamonds. The computer-aided design (CAD) itself took almost 4 months to perfect before the team was satisfied with the output.
This ring has been completely made out of recycled materials – recycled gold in 18kt and diamonds re-purposed from customer returns. The ring has a total of 8 parts which include 4 layers of petals, the shank, 2 diamond discs, and the butterfly.
The final count of diamonds is 50,907 and each diamond was hand set by a team of expert craftsmen. The ring has been aptly named Eutierria, which means becoming one with nature – and shows the connection of humans with nature. With a commitment to sustainability and the planet’s well-being, the HK Group will plant one tree for each diamond set in the Ring, helping support climate action and a sustainable future.
The ring has been certified and valued by a team of qualified diamond and jewellery experts from the International Gemological Institute (IGI). The final gold weight of the ring is 460.55 grams and the diamond weight of 130.19 carats and has a retail value of $785,645.
