Over the previous few months, masks have gone from merely being our first line of defence in opposition to Covid-19 to turning into an integral a part of our outfits as a trend assertion. As with most developments, the innovation/personalisation has moved from design to the fabric used. In July, Pune-based businessman Shankar Kurhade was within the information for his 60-gram gold mask. An Israeli jewelry firm is working on an 18Ok white gold mask to be adorned with 3,600 white and black diamonds.

The 18Ok yellow gold piece is embellished with 468 diamonds totalling as much as 57 carats, took 440 man-hours to make and is backed with a custom-made triple-layer cotton mask. Weighing in at 175.5 grams, it’s fairly heavy to sport on the face — but when brides might put on a 30 kg Falguni and Shane Peacock lehenga with out falling over, this must be a bit of cake.

Gemmologist, jewelry designer and managing associate at Tara Sri, Anand Gupta, says, “The design was inspired by the lotus, and will not be replicated.
