Glamdemic: Israeli Jewelry Company Designs Most Expensive COVID Mask in the World
Yvel, the luxury jewelry brand based in Jerusalem, is currently working on what is likely the world’s most expensive COVID19 protective mask.
The mask, designed by Orna and Isaac Levy, Yvel’s owners and designers, is valued at $1.5 million and is made of 250 grams of pure 18k gold, and set with no less than 3,608 natural diamonds, with a total weight of about 210 carats. It is being custom made for an anonymous Chinese billionaire from Shanghai.
The mask provides the highest level of filtration (N-99) and meets the most stringent standards. With the outbreak of the COVID19 epidemic, Yvel’s visitors’ center and jewelry factory has closed, but the Levys carefully selected 25 jewelers and diamond setters from the company’s staff, working in shifts, to carry out the special order.
Surprisingly, the customer conditioned the purchase of the mask on the fact that the mask would be the most expensive in the world. “It was quite easy for us to overcome this challenge,” says Isaac. (JPost / VFI News)
