You like diamonds set into everyday objects or wearable art? A diamond-studded toilet bowl?
Coronet Jewelry, the diamond jewellery manufacturing division of Aaron Shum Jewelry of Hong Kong, has introduced a toilet bowl set with 40,815 diamonds totalling 334.68 carats. It comes with a price tag of $1.28 million.
The diamond bowl was inducted into the Guinness World Records (for the most diamonds set in a toilet bowl) at a ceremony in Dubai’s Amazing Museum & Art Gallery recently.
The toilet bowl was awarded a certificate of authenticity by a representative of Guinness World Records at the event, and it represents Coronet’s tenth Guinness World Record.
Previous milestones include an award for the world’s most valuable guitar ($2 million), an 18k gold Gibson guitar set with 400 carats of diamonds; and most diamonds on a handbag for a Coca-Cola-inspired handbag set with nearly 10,000 diamonds weighing a total of 120 carats – 8,543 black diamonds and 1,345 colourless diamonds.
Coronet also earned a place in the world record book for the most diamonds set on a mobile phone case – 6,576 diamonds totalling 16.95 carats – and for the most diamonds set on a lipstick case (2,216 diamonds totalling 18.6 carats).
The toilet bowl is inspired by Dubai’s rich culture, with gold as a symbol of wealth, strength and success. Aaron Shum, President of Coronet and The Amazing Gallery, and Tareq, CEO of Korooti, unveiled the bowl at the event.
The Amazing Museum & Gallery is located at Al Garhoud, Dubai, UAE.
