This Blinged Out Mushroom Ring Sets A Record With Over 24,000 Diamonds

The Guinness World Record for the most diamonds in a ring now stands at 24,679 thanks to India SWA Diamonds. The ring is shaped like a pink oyster mushroom with 41 petals, all completely covered in tiny diamonds. We discovered the bling-bling record on DesignTAXI, which reports its value at over $95,000. Which somehow works out to less than $4 per diamond. The name of the ring is “The Touch of Ami” and it weighs 12 ounces. Or about as much as a can of soda. Imagine wearing this on your finger!

The new record has more than doubled previous of 12,638 diamonds, also set by a jewelry designer in India. As recently as 2015, the record for the most diamonds set in a ring was “only” 3,827 diamonds. Since then, a competing group of jewelry makers has roughly doubled the number with each new record ring. Can this be redone or is 24,679 diamonds likely to be the most diamonds in a ring for many years to come? It’s hard to see how anyone could find a way to include more. The diamonds also cover the ring from top to bottom with several strands on the band.

Other interested diamond records from Guinness World Records include the most diamonds set on toilets (40,815) and most diamonds set on a mobile phone case (6,576). But if you’re looking for just one perfect diamond instead of thousands, you can buy one in the shape of a Pokéball for that perfect Pokémon-inspired engagement ring. And never forget that Hidden Valley Ranch made one by heating and pressing ranch seasoning into a 2-carat diamond. How romantic.
