Talk about some bling! A ring created by Ukraine’s Lobortas Classic Jewelry House has earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most diamonds set in one ring - 2,525 diamonds to be exact!
Known as the Tsarevna Swan, the ring’s diamonds are set in 18k white gold and range from 0.001-0.05 carats with a total weight of 10.48 carats. Indian diamond manufacturer Shrenuj Group supplied the breathtaking diamonds which are of G color and range from VVS2 to VS1 in clarity.
According to Lobortas, the ring, inspired by a well-known Russian fable about a swan that becomes a princess, took 530 hours to design and develop and 3,625 hours to create.
Jewelers' Circular Keystone (JCK) reports that the dazzling piece of jewelry was designed three years ago and took about a year to complete. Gene Davidov, the American distributor for Lobortas, believes the ring was sold to a Ukrainian collector.
The $1.3 million Tsarevna Swan is currently on display in Kiev, Ukraine’s capital city.
