World’s heaviest gold ring to go on display in Sharjah

The world’s heaviest gold ring is coming to Sharjah.

The Najmat Taiba or Star of Taiba will be the star attraction at the upcoming 39th MidEast Watch & Jewellery Show that will get under way at Expo Centre Sharjah on October 6, 2015.

Made by Taiba Gold & Jewellery of Saudi Arabia, the 58.686 kg gold ring is studded with 5.17 kg of Swarovski stones. It has a certificate from the Guinness Book of World Records and is endorsed by the World Gold Council.

“The ring was created in 2000, and cost nearly US$550,000 when gold price was US$250 per ounce. Its value has multiplied several times by now, with gold trading near US$1,150. I am sure the ring will generate tremendous buzz among visitors to the show,” said Mr. Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, CEO, Expo Centre Sharjah, said ahead of the show.

Najmat Taiba has a perimeter of 2,200mm, 700mm outer perimeter, 490mm inside diameter, 500mm width of the back of the ring, 250mm width of the ring bottom. Fifty-five workers worked 45 days continuously for 10 hours a day to make this piece.

“It is diamonds that usually capture the attention, but Najmat Taiba has become the centre of attraction -- of jewellers and jewellery lovers alike. To make their visit memorable, we are offering visitors a chance to take a selfie with the ring,” said Mr. Midfa.

Held under the patronage of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, the MidEast Watch & Jewellery Show will feature 500 exhibitors and brands across 30,000 sq. metres of exhibition space at all the six halls at Expo Centre Sharjah.

It will feature exclusive National Pavilions and regional and international launches of new creations, apart from a daily raffle draw that gives away exciting prizes to lucky shoppers. The Hong Kong Pavilion will also give away prizes to visitors. The exhibition will be open from 6th to 10th October 2015 from 12 noon to 10 pm daily, except Friday from 4 pm to 10 pm. There will also be special ladies timings from 12 noon to 4 pm on Wednesday, 7th October. Admission is free for all.
