Israeli jeweler makes $1.5m gold coronavirus mask
MOTZA – An Israeli jewelry company is working on what it says will be the world's most expensive coronavirus mask, a gold, diamond-encrusted face covering with a price tag of $1.5 million. The 18-karat white gold mask will be decorated with 3,600 white and black diamonds and fitted with top-rated N99 filters at the request of the buyer, said designer Isaac Levy. The glitzed-up face mask may lend some pizzazz to the protective gear now mandatory in public spaces in many countries. In an interview at his factory near Jerusalem, Levy showed off several pieces of the mask, covered in diamonds. Levy said that while he would not wear it himself, he was thankful for the opportunity.
