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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
