This Is The Most Expensive Handbag Ever Sold

Crocodile and gold and diamonds, oh my!

A very rare Birkin bag has just set a new record for most expensive handbag ever to be sold at auction. According to Christie's, the Diamond Himalaya Niloticus crocodile diamond 30 cm Birkin with 18k white gold and diamond hardware was sold by a private Asian collector for $300,168 (2 crore INR approx.).

"The diamond pieces created by Hermes are exceptional, but none are nearly as iconic as the Himalaya," reads a press release from Christie's. "It is believed that only one or two of the Diamond Himalayas are produced each year, globally, making it one of the lowest production runs for handbags."

The bag was produced in 2008 and sold in 2009. It breaks the previous record-holder, a $222,000 (1.5 crore INR approx.) fuchsia diamond-studded Hermes Birkin, according to CNN

Yet more proof that Birkins are a fabulous investment
