Jeweler Selling Coronavirus Pendants


People are doing anything they can to try and create income for themselves during this time. Some are even using the coronavirus to help make them money.

Dr. Vorobev, a “medical jewelry” company based in Kostroma, Russia, has been getting a lot of attention for selling a sterling silver pendant, shaped like the coronavirus. The coronavirus pendant is sold online for $13 and has become a bit controversial. While some people buy it and post photos of themselves wearing it on their Instagram and VK accounts, others have criticized the company for trying to make money off a global health crisis that has already killed tens of thousands around the world.

Pavel Vorobyov, the founder of Dr. Vorobev, insists that the pendant is a gesture of support for health professionals, not a way to exploit the current crisis. He added, “Our followers on social media are respectable people – doctors and people with ties to medicine.” He also claimed that many of the patients diagnosed with COVID-19 bought the pendant as gifts for the doctors who saved their lives. Dr. Vorobev claims to have already sold over 1,000 coronavirus pendants all around the world and expects to start seeing “bulk orders” from clinics soon.
