Indian jewellery outlet unveils mammoth one-kg earrings

Abu Dhabi, Sep 11 (IANS) An Indian jewellery firm’s outlet in Dubai has revealed three pairs of earrings weighing one kg each in the run-up to a record attempt, a media report said.

Headquartered in India, GRT Jewellers recently opened a branch in Karama, Dubai and showcased the mini gold chandelier-like mammoth earrings pegged at around 200,000 Dirhams ($54,450) each, Khaleej Times reported on Friday.

The company claims that these are perhaps the largest gold earrings in the world and wished to apply for the Guinness World Records for the world’s largest gold earrings.

“To my knowledge, nobody has made such big earrings so far. We are thankful to south Indian actor Nayantara for unveiling them to the enthusiastic crowd here and making it a success,” group’s managing director G.R. Anand Ananthapadmanabhan was quoted as saying.

As Nayantara unveiled the monumental pieces of jewellery, the crowd scrambled in the store to get a glimpse of the earrings.

“Designed in the traditional Indian ‘jhumka’ style, the handcrafted 22-carat earrings have been displayed to pay tribute to the city of Gold and to commemorate GRT’s successful journey of 50 years,” Ananthapadmanabhan said.

“We wanted to impress Dubai with something special and big,” he added.

The firm said it is open to selling the earrings as collectors’ pieces.
