$4.9M Ring Sets Guinness World Record with 7,700 Diamonds
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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
