A stunning wedding gown (worth Rs 46 lakh) encrusted with over 50,000 crystals has officially broken the Guinness World Record (GWR) for most crystals on a bridal dress. According to Guinness World Records, the dress premiered on April 14, 2023, during the Si Sposaitalia Collezioni Fashion Show in Milan after four months of preparation.

The wedding gown is made of 50,890 Swarovski crystals and designed by Michela Ferriero, an Italian company. According to media reports, even the gloves are studded with gems.

Months of labor

According to GWR, the customized outfit took several months to complete. The shop's co-founder, Michaela Ferreiro, created a piece after studying suitable materials to execute the idea. The garment is created by the designer in collaboration with a pattern maker and a group of skilled seamstresses. The base of the garment was made with extra care.

Crystals hand-stitched onto the dress

Each crystal was hand-stitched onto the dress, which took 200 hours. GWR's official website states, 'One crystal each was first stitched into the tulle base of the dress, followed by crystal fringe on the bodice, gloves and finally a crystal chain on the back to provide a cascade of light.'

'When you have someone to love, every single dream you have can come true, even the biggest and most challenging,' Michaela Ferriero told GWR.

His name was the previous record

Swarovski is a well-known name

Swarovski has a long and colorful past, dating back to 1895, when Daniel Swarovski, an immigrant from Bohemia, started the company. Swarovski immediately soared in fame. High-quality, precision-cut crystals made using a complex (and proprietary) method became the company's hallmark.

For more than a century, the firm has remained a leading manufacturer of world-class crystal jewelry, decor, dinnerware, and watches, according to the Lion and Unicorn Auction House.
