A mask like any other but one that makes the headlines globally is what. Levy, an Israeli jeweler has taken on the challenge of creating the worlds most expensive mask to combat the corona virus. Using up to 3600 black and white diamonds which shall be embedded on to an 18-karat white gold mask, the mask is going to be one of its kind. The price isn’t something that came to be, in fact the customer had specifically requested Levy to create the ‘world most expensive mask’ , a challenge that Levy was keen to take on. Expected to be complete by the end of this calendar year, the mask does not just try to scare the virus away with its hefty price tag. In fact, with a rating of N99 filters, it will be one of the most secure if used right.
The mask is supposed to weigh in at over half a pound – thanks to the weight of the gold and the diamonds making it extremely uncomfortable , not to mention impractical but I look forward to adding some photos of it to this blog post once we know who the customer is. Lev has so far reused to identify the Chinese businessman based in the USA, who has commissioned this piece of art, if one considers it to be that. Levy who owns the jewellery company ‘Yvel’ in Israel was happy with the fact that this commission allowed him to keep employees on in these challenging times.
