World's Most Expensive Handbag

Thought I might get a couple of these, one for weekdays and one for the weekend, what do you think?
This is the House of Mouawad's new "1001 Nights Diamond Purse," which clocks in at a whopping £2.35M (US$3.8 million).

Encrusted with over 381 carats of diamonds, this heart-shaped bag has been named the world's most expensive handbag by the Guinness Book of World Records. In it, 4,517 diamonds were used—105 yellow, 56 pink and 4,356 colorless—and it took 10 artisans 1,100 hours to complete. They dedicated four months to the project.


  1. Its beautiful, think I will run right out and get one. ;) Hope you are having a great weekend Helen!!

  2. I'm blinded! Seriously, I think we can make this with a Bedazzler....

  3. Whoa! That's impressive...excessive, but kind of cool that those artists had the dedication. Thanks for sharing:)
