This ring featuring over 24,000 diamonds has just set a new Guinness World Record. Created by India-based designer SWA Diamonds the spectacular ring was designed to mimic a pink oyster mushroom and contains a whopping 24,679 diamonds. The SWA Diamonds' creation, dubbed ‘The Touch of Ami’ - which means "immortality" in Sanskrit - set the record on May 5. To achieve the desired design, a prototype of the ring was first created using a plastic mold and then recreated digitally. As the ring was one-of-a-kind in terms of filaments and design, it took SWA Diamonds almost three months to complete the computer-aided-design (CAD). After 3D printing, liquid gold was then poured into the mold, cooled and filed into the overall shape of 41 unique mushroom petals. With the base complete, each natural diamond was then meticulously placed by hand on each side of the mushroom petals. The ornate mushroom shape was then supported by a circular band, also partially studded with diamonds. Once the ring was finished, it had to be independently verified. The glitzy ring weighs 340 grams and according to SWA Diamonds has a value of £79,967 ($95,243). The mushroom-inspired creation has almost double the number of diamonds as the previous record-holder.
