India’s leading wedding jewellers, Shiv Narayan Jewellers; well-known for designing wedding collections for diverse communities across India launched their new collection at the IIJS Tritiya.
The gold Ganesha pendant embellished with rubies and emeralds gets into the Guinness book of records for being the heaviest weighing 1105.15 grams and for the most number of diamonds totalling 11472 set in a pendant. It took Shiv Narayan Jewellers, Hyderabad, five months to craft the Ganesha necklace.
At the IIJS Tritiya Shiv Narayan Jewellers paid a tribute to Lord Rama by creating a pendant which showcased “Ram Parivar” in the front and an inscription of “Jai Shri Ram” at the back. This one-of-a-kind masterpiece is crafted with 70,000 natural diamonds, 2600 cts emeralds and weighs approximately 2 kgs. It took the expert team at Shiv Narayan Jewellers 8 months to handcraft and bring this work of art to life; and the good news is that the magnificent pendant is all set to make its way to Guinness World Records.
Besides discovering magnificent jewellery by Shiv Narayan Jewellers I also discovered an antique magnifying glass embellished with emeralds and diamonds.
