China, Shanghai
November 06, 2019 at 18:59 GMT +00:00 · Published

A golden toilet studded with 40,815 diamonds was on display in China International Import Expo in Shanghai on Tuesday.

Ten workers spent several months constructing the toilet, which is said to be bullet-proof. Dr. Aaron Shum, founder of the jewellery group, said the toilet was more a piece of art, and "that the diamond toilet is your best friend." He doubted that the toilet would be used as an actual toilet.

The lavatory has won the Guinness World Record for most amount of diamonds set on a toilet. Dr Shum has be awarded the Guinness World Record a further nine times.
