A $1.5 million face mask made by Israel-based jewelry company Yvel may be the world’s most expensive.

It’s constructed of 18-karat white gold, the New York Post reports. It “will be decorated with 3,600 white and black diamonds and fitted with top-rated N99 filters.”

The mask was requested by a Chinese businessman who lives in the U.S.

Bloomberg reports that the mask weighs more than half a pound.

“Money maybe doesn’t buy everything, but if it can buy a very expensive Covid-19 mask and the guy wants to wear it and walk around and get the attention, he should be happy with that,” said Isaac Levy, owner of Yvel, according to Bloomberg.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
