In India, medical masks embroidered with diamonds and gold thread have come into fashion.


With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, a new fashion for wealthy people appeared in the country: a medical mask that suddenly became indispensable turned into an object that confirms the high social status of its owner with its appearance. In the western Indian state of Gujarat, in the city of Surat, many jewelry stores have begun selling items that are more like jewelry than protective medical equipment.



"In the near future, the request for masks will continue," Deepak Choksi, the owner of a jewelry store, expressed confidence. "A mask sewn using gold thread and semi-precious stones will cost the buyer approximately $2,000; a mask made with real diamonds in addition to gold costs more than $5,000."
