Shiv Narayan Jewellers Pvt Ltd, a renowned legacy jewellery brand based in Hyderabad, has made history by achieving eight Guinness World Records® titles, becoming the first Indian jeweller to accomplish the remarkable feat. To mark this momentous occasion, a grand celebration took place at the majestic Taj Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad, attended by esteemed dignitaries and celebrities, paying tribute to Shiv Narayan’s rich legacy.
The star-studded event featured Bollywood’s fashion icon, Disha Patani, who gracefully walked the ramp adorned in one of Shiv Narayan’s exquisite high jewellery pieces. Her presence not only showcased the intricate craftsmanship but also highlighted the breath-taking elegance of the brand’s creations. The evening unfolded as a captivating display of fashion, glamour, and extraordinary jewellery, with the highlight being the unprecedented “Experiential Zone” – an immersive experience showcasing the record-breaking jewels themselves. Divided into four zones, each dedicated to a specific creation, the exhibition provided insights into the inspiration, innovation, and intricacies behind each masterpiece.
The first zone showcased the Ganesh Pendant, which secured two Guinness World Records® titles: “The Heaviest Pendant” weighing 1011.150 grams and “The Most Diamonds Set On A Pendant” with a staggering count of 11,472 diamonds. The meticulously handcrafted pendant took an impressive six and a half months to complete, exemplifying the brand’s commitment to exquisite craftsmanship.
Continuing their record-breaking spree, Shiv Narayan Jewellers surpassed its own achievement with the Ram Darbar pendant. This opulent piece earned the titles of “The Heaviest Pendant” weighing 1681.820 grams and “The Most Diamonds Set On A Pendant” with an astonishing count of 54,666 diamonds. Notably, it also holds the distinction of being “The Heaviest Diamond Pendant” with intricate inscriptions of Lord Ram even on the back. The pendant’s creation spanned over eight and a half months, further emphasising the brand’s dedication to precision and design.
The Satlada Necklace, a stunning seven-layered necklace adorned with 315 emeralds and 1971 fine diamonds, claimed two Guinness World Records® titles: “The Most Emeralds Set On A Necklace” and “The Most Diamonds Set On A Necklace.” The meticulous sourcing of gemstones for this necklace alone took two and a half years, and its creation involved four months of skilled craftsmanship. Paying homage to the ancient treasures of the Nizams, an integral part of Shiv Narayan’s heritage, the Satlada Necklace stands as a resplendent testament to the brand’s unwavering dedication and attention to detail.
Setting the bar even higher, Shiv Narayan Jewellers unveiled The Magnifying Glass, a truly extravagant creation with an astonishing value of $108,346, earning it the title of “The Most Expensive Magnifying Glass.” This remarkable piece showcases the brand’s commitment to pushing boundaries and redefining luxury.
