For the second time in a year, the world record for the most diamonds set in a single ring has been broken.
Ghanshyam Dholakia, managing director of Hari Krishna Exports, said it was an honour to win the recognition.
With the Eutierria Ring, “We are proud to demonstrate our dedication to sustainability and artistic excellence, and we hope to continue pushing the boundaries of innovation in the jewellery industry.”
The manufacturing process for this sunflower-inspired artwork took about nine months from conception to completion. The ring has eight separate components, including a butterfly, two diamond discs, the shank, and four tiers of petals.
The company’s name, Eutierria, which means “becoming one with nature,” was chosen to further emphasise its dedication to sustainability.
The piece was authenticated and evaluated by the International Gemological Institute, which confirmed 130 carats of diamonds and 460 grammes of gold. The sculpture is worth an estimated $US785,000 (AU1.16 million) at retail.
