Pak goldsmith makes 71.68-kg silver ring, enters Guinness Book
Islamabad: A goldsmith from the eastern
Pakistani city of Lahore has entered the Guinness Book of
World Records for crafting a 71.68-kg silver ring.
Mohammad Amin Saleem of Lahore`s old quarters completed
the ring with an inner diameter of 85 cm in August. It is made
of 97.83 percent pure silver.
The Guinness Book of World Records has issued a
certificate to Saleem, Dawn newspaper reported today.
Saleem said it took him and his 10 workers 70 days to
make the ring.
"I had earlier prepared a 74.6-kg ring having the flags
of 210 countries but it was not included in the Guinness
Book," he said.
"Then I decided to make another ring and got exact
specifications from the Guinness to ensure a place for my
creation in the book," Saleem said.
He asked authorities to give him an opportunity to
display the ring at exhibitions across the world to project a
soft image of Pakistan.
