As the pandemic continues, a mask becomes a necessary item in our daily life. But this is not an ordinary mask that you can see on the street every day.
Israel company made a 1.5 million U.S dollars mask for U.S client with 18-carat gold and studded with 3,600 black and white diamonds, the mask will be fitted with an N99 filter to offer a high level of protection follow CDC protection patent, said Isaac Levy- the owner of the Yvel jewelry brand.
“He’s a very charming, very outgoing, wealthy young client of ours, and he wants to stand out”, Levy said. The jeweler plans to sell the mask in person in October when it’s done. The client is Chinese art collectors living in the U.S, he added.
The mask, on which a team of about 25 artisans works, may be seen as a grotesque show of prosperity amid tough economic times, but for Levy, it is above all a work of art.
