Switzerland's Shawish Jewelry has created the world's first diamond ring.
Not impressed? Well, consider that the entire ring is carved from a diamond, whereas most other diamond rings are composed of a precious-metal band with a diamond centerpiece. Styleite writes that the 150-carat ring runs laps around some other famous diamond competitors, including Beyoncé's 18-carat engagement ring from Jay-Z and the even better known 30-carat ring given to the late Elizabeth Taylor by Richard Burton.
The ring was created by Shawish's president and CEO Mohamed Shawesh using lasers (yes, lasers!) along with traditional diamond cutting and polishing techniques. It took a full year to carve the ring, which has been copyrighted and is expected to sell for $70 million.

Looks like a mood ring.
Somebody will get some good action over that thing. Then they’ll get screwed by the lawyers too.
And if it does not fit, resizing will cost a fortune!
It’s downright ugly.
Looks like a glass prop. Not impressed with the beauty. The tech yes, the style, no.
I work on Jewelry....that’s quite the ring though rather bulky in it’s appearance...I could think of better places to park 70 million.
A woman was simply shopping the mall a few months ago and then sported her ring front and center....18 carat..to wear “shopping”?????
What was it cut from? It wasn’t some kind of grown crystal or something, was it?
What if it doesn’t fit? At that price I guess you get another fiance.
Here’s a better photo ...
Whack it on the wrong sharp edge just right, and it’ll shatter, too...
“Somebody will get some good action over that thing. Then theyll get screwed by the lawyers too.”
It must be stipulated in the contract that the “action” must continue without falter or failure, BS excuses like “headaches” are NOT acceptable!;))
Yup, that’s one ring you can’t get resized.
It could break if you simply dropped it on the sidewalk.
that should go well with cinderella’s glass slippers
LOL! Yes...it actually IS ugly!!
Diamonds are my FAVORITE...but that thing is wrong. Just wrong.
Like diamonds also, but it would have been better as a solitare diamond. Of course you’d have to keep your arm in a sling because of the weight....LOL
Why doesn’t Moochelle own it yet?
In the nineties I was shopping at a jewelry supply store in San Diego. Standing next to me, a well dressed middle aged woman noticed my bracelet, a heavy 14K solid link chain weighing a few ounces.
She lightly put her finger on the bracelet, looked me in the eye, and said, “You know, some places around here they would chop off your hand to steal that bracelet.”
If you still have the bracelet, I can drive half way to SD to meet you, you GIVE me the bracelet...and I will save your hand.
Geez, it took like 2 hours for my last post to show up, so if I don’t respond to you in a timely manner, it’s not my fault.
I’m in Florida, so it might make a drive! Still have the bracelet and the hand :) but thanks for the offer.
