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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
