IGI certified Lotus Temple Ring earns Guinness World Record

Laashikaa Jewels, a Mumbai based brand, earned a Guinness World Record for ‘the most number of diamonds set in one ring’ with their design creation, the Lotus Temple Ring. The ring, containing 7,777 natural diamonds, was certified by the global grading and certifying authority, IGI. The 21.39 carat ring from Laashikaa Jewels was graded VVS-VS in terms of clarity and E-F on the color scale. The exquisite piece of jewelry has round, brilliant diamonds studded on an 18 carat ring giving the jewelry an exceptional touch of luxury and grandeur.

Conceptualized and designed by Prince Bhandari, founder of Laashikaa Jewels, the ring marks their entry into the architectural design-inspired models. The entire process of creation, from design to the end production, was guided and managed by the first generation diamond jeweler. The inspiration behind the design is the elaborate and grand architecture of the Lotus Temple situated in New Delhi which symbolizes the sentiment of purity, divinity and spirituality in almost all religions.

“The Lotus Temple Ring is no less than a dream. Inspired by the splendid architecture of the Lotus Temple, the Bahá’í House of Worship, the ring symbolizes divinity across all religions. We are delighted to achieve the Guinness World Record for the title ‘most diamonds set in one ring.’ We are thankful to everybody who has been a part of its making,” said Prince Bhandari.

The setting of 7,777 natural diamonds in the ring was a meticulous task with a fair amount of challenges in the process of completion. Team Laashikaa was successful at going beyond the conventional practices to produce a marvel.
