Largest gold ring on display in Sharjah

The world’s largest gold ring, Najmat Taiba (Star of Taiba), has gone on display at Sahara Centre, Sharjah’s leading retail, entertainment and leisure destination.

Customers at the mall will enjoy an exclusive opportunity to view the USD 3 million masterpiece as it becomes Sharjah’s star attraction this month.

The 21-carat Najmat Taiba, which has been recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records and endorsed by the World Gold Council, weighs almost 64 kg (141 pounds) and is studded with 5.1 kg (11 pounds) of precious stones and diamonds, as well as 615 Swarovski crystals.

Fifty-five jewel smiths worked for 10 hours a day for 45 days to craft the ring, which is owned by the Dubai-based Taiba company and has been put on display by Rossella Jewellery.

The Najmat Taiba cost its owner $547,000 to make back in 2000, when gold was priced at about $250 an ounce. Gold prices have since soared and are now trading at about $1,497, giving the ring a value estimated at $3 million.

Sahara Centre is strategically located on the Dubai-Sharjah Highway.
