Kerala-based and Gujarat-educated designer Rijisha TV, bagged a spot in the Guinness World Records and Asian Book of Records for her ring, The Touch of Ami. Rijisha, who passed out from Ahmedabad’s National Institute of Design in 2018 with MDes in lifestyle accessories design (LAD), crafted the ring for a Kerala-based jewellery chain.
The ring’s design was inspired by the pink oyster mushroom, which represents eternity, and it shines with 24,679 diamonds. The ring designed by Rijisha has broken the previous record of 12,638 diamonds in one ring, which was also designed and manufactured in India.
The name Ami means nectar of immortality. The design allows different parts of the ring to be dismantled through 41 unique caps to provide different profiles. It took 90 gruelling days to fix the 24,000-plus diamonds on the ring. The ring weighs 344 grams and is priced at around Rs 80 lakh.
