Renani Jewels (India) has broken the dazzling Guinness World Records title for the most diamonds set on a watch.
The watch, named Srinkia, has 17,512 white diamonds and 12 black diamonds. Srinkia means flower, and the timepiece draws inspiration from Lakshmi, goddess of wealth and good fortunes. (Scroll down to see video of the watch.)
The record was verified in Meerut, India, in late December. The diamonds were authenticated by an International Gemological Institute Lab certificate to determine that actual diamonds were used, according to a post on the Guinness website.
In accordance with Guinness guidelines, the diamond had to be sourced from producers that are certified by the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme.
The previous record was set by Aaron Shum Jewelry Ltd. (Hong Kong) with 15,858 diamonds in December 2018.
