Kerala Mushroom Shaped Diamond Ring Set A New World Record

Thanks to a jeweller in Kerala, there is a new record-breaking diamond ring in the Guinness Book of Records. The record for the most diamonds set in one ring has been broken by a mushroom-shaped diamond band from Kerala.

On May 5, 2022, this was noted in Karathode, Kerala. This diamond ring in the form of a mushroom is set with 24,679 real diamonds, according to Guinness World Records. The ring is appropriately called "Ami," which is Sanskrit for "immortality." The pink oyster mushroom, which stands for immortality and longevity, served as the inspiration for the design of the ring. The ring also features a statement from Abdul Gafur Anadiyan, managing director of SWA Diamonds.

The creation of the ring required a lot of thought and effort. Not to forget about time. This ring took the jeweller three months to create. After 3D printing, liquid gold was put into the mould, cooled, and then filed into the general shape of 41 different mushroom petals, according to Guinness World Records. Once the base was finished, each diamond was painstakingly hand-placed on either side of the mushroom petals. The diamonds used were natural.

The ring costs a whopping $ 95,243 (about RM424,640), or 340 grammes, or three-quarters of a pound. After being confirmed by a group of independent gemologists, the mushroom-shaped ring from Kerala was given the Guinness record. Following this, Guinness experts used a microscope to count the diamonds. They then assessed and verified the clarity, carat, weight, cut type, and type of diamonds utilised. Businessman Harshit Bansal of Meerut previously held the record; he did so in 2020 with a flowery arrangement adorned with 12,638 diamonds.

We usually advise brilliant round diamonds with a cut grade of very good, ideal, or super ideal for engagement rings (also known as hearts and arrows). A high cut grade maximises a diamond’s beauty for a given carat weight.
