Czech design firm hopes that two dragon-shaped chandeliers it created for the Imperial Palace casino in Saipan will be recognized as the world’s largest pieces of jewelry.

The work, which spans about 197 feet, includes 2.5 million Swarovski crystals set, according to the Robb Report. The dragons fighting over a flaming pearl are common motif in Chinese mythology.

“We approached the limits of what is both technically and physically possible. Master glassmakers and metalsmiths brought the know-how of hundreds of years of craft tradition, while their work was supported by a high-tech design process throughout,” said Leon Jakimič, Lasvit’s president and founder.

Lasvit is seeking to have the work listed by Guinness World Records as the world’s largest jewelry.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
