Lakshikaa Jewels created this record-setting ring with 7,777 diamonds.

A ring worth $4.9 million has been recognized by Guinness World Records for “most diamonds set in one ring.”

The piece by Lakshikaa Jewels in Mumbai, India, has 7,777 sparklers. They’re set on an 18 karat gold base.

“A team of twelve crafters and one experienced jeweller and designer worked on the project to recreate the Lotus Temple in Delhi on a piece of jewellery,” according to a news release from Guinness World Records.

It took 18 months to create.

“I couldn’t think of a more appropriate way to celebrate human ingenuity and spirituality than this temple,” said Lakshikaa Jewels’ founder Naveen “Prince” Bhandari.

Bhandari added that the lotus, known as padma in Sanskrit, is a sacred symbol in several religions.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
