“There is no greater joy than to live your dreams the way you were meant to. Our team feels accomplished and satisfied after knowing we have earned a new Guinness World Records title,” SWA Diamond’s managing director, Abdul Gafar Anadiyan, said. “It marks the triumph of entrepreneurship in the diamond sector of our state.”

Although its carats were not announced, the ring weighs 340 grams (three-quarters of a pound) and is worth $95,243. 

Intricate design

Named “The Touch of Ami,” its design is inspired by the pink oyster mushroom, which symbolizes immortality and longevity. SWA Diamonds achieved the intricate structure of the ring by pouring liquid gold into a mold to form 41 unique mushroom petals. After, each of the thousands of natural diamonds was handset. 

The previous holder of the record title was Meerut-based jeweler Harshit Bansal. In 2020, he encrusted a floral-inspired ring with 12,638 diamonds—just about half of what The Touch of Ami’s is adorned with.

SWA Diamonds are one of its country’s leading jewelry manufacturers. According to Luxuo, the Indian gems and jewelry industry is one of the most significant in the world, contributing to 29 percent of global sales.
