Star of Taiba: World’s Heaviest Gold Ring

On my visit to the gold souk in Dubai, I was mesmerized by the glittery gold jewelries and accessories that were displayed at every store. Just crossing the street you can see the first store. It came to struck me the gigantic gold ring displayed in one of the escaparates of the store. The sales staff would invite everyone to come in. I was amused that there were no guards that you can see. One can even freely hold everything that one desires to feel and touch without any tight watch.

Najmat Taiba or Star of Taiba is the holder of Guiness Book of World Records as the world's heaviest gold ring that has a total weight of 63.856 kg. It was created by Taiba for Gold and Jewellery Co. Ltd, of Saudi Arabia. The ring have 5.17 kg precious stones and set on 58.686 kg of 21 carat gold ring.

Definitely this would not fit anyone’s finger. Its good for the eyes only. Its truly another wonder creation.
