As the world is battling with COVID-19, Face Masks have become an integral part of our lives. They are one of our major defense weapons against the war with the deadly virus. In the past few months, we have seen designers and brands come up with different types of masks and face covers. There are lots of options available for the people ranging from eco-friendly to hi-tech masks. Well, today we are showing a luxury face mask that could easily be the most expensive in the world. YVEL, Jerusalem-based luxury Jewelry Company is working on a face mask which they say will be the world’s most expensive coronavirus mask.
The Israeli company known for its pearl jewelry is designing the luxury face mask for a Chinese businessman who currently lives in the United States. The luxury coronavirus mask is made out of 18-karat white gold and comes encrusted with 3600 black and white diamonds. Expected to weigh about half a pound (270gm), the face mask comes with a price tag of $1.5 million. According to Isaac Levy, owner of YVEL, the luxury accessory they are making is the most expensive face mask in the world. And if some other brand will make a costly mask than theirs, he believes his company will find another customer to create an even more expensive mask.
Levy said that the customer has three demands that he wanted to fulfill with the mask. Firstly, the mask should come be a N99 approved by the FDA and European standards. Secondly, the mask must be delivered before the end of this year. Lastly, which Levy described as the easiest condition was that it would be the most expensive mask in the world. However, he refused to the reveal the identity of the Chinese businessman.
The world’s most expensive coronavirus mask created by YVEL will come with a hefty price tag of $1.5 million once completed.
