The owner of the jewellery shop, Dipak Choksi claimed that he got the idea after a customer demanded a unique pair of mask for a bride and groom. 

As lockdown was lifted, a customer who had a wedding at his home came to our shop and demanded unique masks for bride & groom. So, we assigned our designers to create masks which the customer later bought. After this, we made a wide range of these masks as people will require them in coming days. Pure diamond and American diamond have been used with gold to make these masks. 

Dipak Choksi further broke down the composition of these masks and said that the diamond and gold from these masks could be taken out to make jewellery in the future. 

Yellow gold has been used in the mask along with American diamond and it costs 1.5 lakh. Another mask which is made with white gold and real diamond and it costs 4 lakh rupees.
