Heavy is the wrist that wears the watch, and the ambitious Renani Jewels piece, “Srinkia” (translating to flower), has its wearer dripping in excess. The northern Indian designed watch is clad with 17,512 white diamonds and 12 black diamonds.
The 373 gram watch was verified by the Guinness World Record officials knocking out its predecessor, an Adam Shum Jewellery watch adorned with 15,858 diamonds which held the record for most diamonds set on a watch from 2018.
Described as the “watch of good fortunes”, immense amounts of time and passion was poured into the creation of this piece. At its first stages, the watch was put to paper with hand-drawn sketches before computer-assisted design (CAD) technology was used to print the watch. For the finishing, this watch took five different forms of polishing to achieve its final look.
Renani Jewels founder, Harshit Banal describes the dedication and thought that went into creating such a spectacular piece. “I look forward to new technologies that we can merge with traditional methods of jewellery making. I believe that this technology will make the impossible, possible.” he says.
