(Baselworld, Switzerland, March 23, 2018）Hong Kong diamond jeweler Coronet® is proud to announce its accomplishment of its third GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title with the Most diamonds set on a handbag at BASELWORLD 2018 in Hall 1.
Following the launch of the world’s Most valuable guitar in 2015 (400 carat diamond) and the worlds’ Most jewels on a guitar (16,033 Swarovski jewels) in 2016, this is the third GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS achievement of Coronet’s diamond creations. The show-stopping iconic shaped handbag is handset with 9,888 pieces of natural diamonds, 120cts. Production took nearly 100 working days and was a collaboration from more than 15 craftsmen. Icestrella, a material employed in the creation of bulletproof glass, replicates the look and feel of the iconic glass bottle. This incredible handbag is an international collaboration designed by Beverly Hills Designer Kathrine Baumann and fabricated by Aaron Shum of Aaron Shum Jewelry.
Aaron Shum, founder of Coronet® and President of Aaron Shum Jewelry, remarked, “This year, we collaborate with Kathrine Baumann, former Miss America & Beverly Hills Designer to show you the creativity and inspiring jewelry ideas that nobody would expect: a Coca-Cola bottle shaped handbag adorned with 9,888 pieces of diamonds. We had achieved two Guinness World Records titles, and it really made a splash in the industry. There is nothing to stop us from reaching more milestones and we strive to go beyond people’s expectations, that’s why we created this diamond handbag, our third Guinness World Records title!”
