The ring, created over 18 months by Lakshikaa Jewels from Mumbai, India, has recreated the Lotus Temple in Delhi on a piece of jewellery. Lakshikaa Jewels’ founder, Naveen ‘Prince’ Bhandari, explained that he attempted the record because “Guinness World Records means international recognition. As a jewellery house, Lakshikaa Jewels aims to make an international name for itself”.

The ring looks like a closed lotus flower, complete with 27 “petals” studded with round brilliant-cut diamonds. It weighs 70.423 grams, and will go on auction “soon”, according to reports. The last Guinness world record for the “most diamonds set in one ring” was held by a ring featuring “just” 6,690 diamonds. Oddly enough, it was also crafted in India, and was also inspired by the lotus flower. That ring went for $4.1 million in auction.
