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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
