An Israeli jewelry company is working on what it says will be the world’s most expensive coronavirus mask: a gold, diamond-encrusted face covering with a price tag of $1.5 million.
According to Dailymail, The 18-karat white gold mask will be decorated with 3,600 white and black diamonds and fitted with an N99 filter at the request of the buyer, said Isaac Levy, designer and owner of Yvel company.
Levy said the buyer had two other demands: that it be completed by the end of the year, and that it would be the priciest in the world. That last condition, he said, ‘was the easiest to fulfill.’
The glitzed-up face mask may lend some pizzazz to the protective gear now mandatory in public spaces in many countries. But at 270 grams (over half a pound) — nearly 100 times that of a typical surgical mask — it is not likely to be a practical accessory to wear.
In an interview at his factory in Motza, near Jerusalem, Levy showed off several pieces of the mask, covered in diamonds. One gold plate had a hole for the filter.
‘Money maybe doesn’t buy everything, but if it can buy a very expensive COVID-19 mask and the guy wants to wear it and walk around and get the attention, he should be happy with that,’ Levy said.
