$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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
