Harshit Bansal has entered the record books after setting 12,638 diamonds in a single ring sold at his store in the city of Meerut.

The ring is called the Marigold and is also known as the 'Ring Of Prosperity' as it features thousands of natural diamonds.

Bansal became interested in breaking the world record back in 2018 when he was studying jewellery design.

He told Guinness World Records: "My target was always more than 10,000 diamonds. I trashed many designs and concepts over the years to finally zero in on this."

The ring comfortably beat the previous record - another ring from India that consisted of 7,801 diamonds.
