Today, it is possible to buy a ring in any jewellery shop. And the value will depend on the metal that it’s made from. Moreover, the gemstones that are used to decorate the ring will also add substantial value.
Undoubtedly, the most precious jewellery pieces are those decorated with diamonds. However, the highest-priced diamond ring in the world was designed by the Swiss Company “Shawish” and is produced without any metal. It is made entirely out of diamond, which is great for jewellery making due to its unique properties. This ring is known as “The World’s First All Diamond Ring”.
This diamond ring was first shown at an exhibition in London in 2011. It is an incredibly beautiful and unique jewellery piece with a total weight of 150 carats created by the talented jeweller Mohamed Shawish. The price of this piece is around $70 million. The jeweller chose to create such an unbelievable piece because no one had ever produced a whole ring exclusive from diamond before.
Unquestionably, it would have taken a lot of time and effort to make such beauty. Its creator says that he had to buy special laser equipment in order to cut the diamond without losing any of its original properties. And despite using such specialist equipment, Mohamed spent a year creating such this masterpiece.
As of yet, no-one has offered to purchase this ring. Nevertheless, it has made a name for the manufacturer. Celebrities and wealthy individuals from every corner of the globe now desire to buy pieces made by this jewellery house.
