Dripping with jewelry

Vishal Agarwal and Khushbu Agarwal with Hanumat Diamonds in Surat created their masterpiece, lotus ring this year. The stunning creation broke the previous world record by 2,863 cut diamonds.
On April 8th, 2018 the Guinness World Record was broken for the most cut diamonds set in a single ring. The previous record was held by Savio Jewelry in India for their Peacock Ring. Fashioned in 2015, the Peacock Ring had 3,827 cut diamonds.
The Peacock ring had beaten the previous record held for 4 years by 1,302 diamonds. And while the Peacock Ring's feat has held the world record for 3 years, this new ring has twice the amount of diamonds. According to Guinness World Records, neither of these rings are for weak fingers as their large size and weight of 50.42 and 58 grams both weigh more than a golf ball.
Vishal Agarwal and Khushbu Agarwal are credited with creating this record breaking masterpiece with Hanumat Diamonds based out of Mahidharpura, Surat. Vishal designed the ring in the shape of a lotus flower with 36 individual, 18 karat rose gold petals to hold this astounding amount of diamonds.
Khushbu, the owner of Hanumant Diamonds, funded the project and provided the 6,690 cut gems. This lotus ring took 6 months to design, craft and place all the diamonds. At High Performance Diamonds, we can only imagine how much more stunning the ring would be if the diamonds had been cut by Crafted by Infinity, as well as how much larger the price tag of the ring would be since it is already appraised at $4,116,787.
"As fame is so much attached to a Guinness World Records title, we can put it to good use by bringing together like-minded people to work towards a beautiful world,"
-Vishal Agarwal and Khushbu Agarwal
Vishal and Khushbu wanted to raise awareness for water conservation. The designer choose the lotus flower for their ring because they felt it represents "the beauty growing in the water-world". The lotus flower is also the national flower of India paying homage to the country where the ring was crafted.
Below is a video showing the ring's construction starting with the individual petals, ring, and how these artisans bring it all together to make this beautiful, record breaking piece of jewelry history.
