Stephen: Designer creates face mask worth over $1 Million
An Israeli jeweler has created a diamond-encrusted gold face mask worth $1.5 million — and it actually works. Designer Isaac Levy of the Yvel company says he was contacted by a Chinese businessman living in the U.S. who asked him to create a mask that would be the most expensive in the world. So Levy designed an 18-karat white gold mask, bedazzled with black and white diamonds. While the mask that can be fitted with top-of-the-line n99 filters, it weighs in at half a pound, making wearing the mask impractical at best.
“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. “I am happy that this mask gave us enough work for our employees to be able to provide their jobs in very challenging times.”
