NEW DELHI: A 25-year-old jeweller's elaborate floral-shaped diamond ring sporting 12,638 tiny diamonds has earned a place in the Guinness World Records.

This diamond band weighs a little over 165 grams. 

This chunky ring is called 'The Marigold - The Ring of Prosperity.'

Harshit Bansal, the jeweller behind this creation, described his audacious creation as a dream project.

He added that the ring is comfortable to wear. He got the idea two years ago while studying jewellery design in Gujarat's Surat which is also the country's diamond hub. 

Each tiny petal in the ring's eight-layer flower design was unique, he said. 

He has no plans to sell his ring so far.
