An engagement ring designed in India has taken its place in the Guinness World Records as having the most diamonds ever recorded on a ring - 12,638 of them, in fact. 

According to Guinness, the previous record also set in India was for a ring containing 7801 diamonds.

New record holder 25-year-old Harish Bansal told AFP news agency that designing the "wearable and comfortable" ring was his "dream project". 

"My target was always more than 10,000 diamonds. I trashed many designs and concepts over the years to finally zero in on this," Bansal said, according to the Daily Mail. 

But it sadly wasn't designed with a particularly lucky bride in mind. Bansal said he's already turned down requests from prospective buyers. 

"We have no plans of selling it right now," he said. "It's a matter of pride for us. It's priceless."
