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

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
