Ring In The New Year

Swan Ring

How does a swan end up in the Guinness Book of World Record may you ask? Apparently when it is made out of diamonds and placed on a finger! The Lobortas Classic Jewelry House in Kiev, Ukraine has set the world record for the most diamonds in one ring. This ring has been named the “Tsarevna Swan” (Tsarevna being the daughter of the Russian Tsar) and contains a total of 2,525 diamonds!! The diamonds range from 0.001 – 0.05 carat, and carry a total weight of 10.48 carats. This work of art is set at the price of $1.3 million.

Other rings such as Kim Kardashian’s $2 million dollar engagement ring and the famed Princess Diana’s blue sapphire ring have also caught the attention of the world. These sparkling pieces don’t measure up to the largest ring in Hollywood history. Of course the winner goes to Elizabeth Taylors’s engagement ring given to her by Richard Burton.

Taylor Ring

Elizabeth Taylor’s 69 carat ring was even too large for her to comfortably wear on her finger, so she fashioned the pear-shaped diamond onto a necklace. However when Elizabeth and Richard divorced, Elizabeth auctioned off the ring for $5 million and put 100% of the money towards building a hospital in Botswana.

Besides the record breaking “Tsarevna Swan”, Hearts on Fire is known as the “World Greatest Cut Diamond” and hasn’t been close to beaten yet! Here at Secret Sapphire, we carry a range of spectacularly cut diamond rings, necklaces, and earrings.
