Did you know that women spent $11.5 billion on handbags last year?
What can we say? We love our handbags.
We need a handbag to match every single one of our outfits, that’s just the girl code.
It’s such a great feeling when you can go out and buy yourself a nice purse with the raise you just got. Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian’s kids are just given “Marti” Alexander Wang bags like no big deal.
If you thought your little $50 purse was expensive, think again. We’ve compiled a list of the 5 most expensive luxury handbags and trust us when we say, you’ll need to sell all your body parts to afford one!
1) Lana Marks Cleopatra Clutch
This gorgeous bag ranges from $100,000 to $400,000. A piece of cake, right?
This bag is so expensive because a new Cleopatra Clutch comes out every year. Each of them varies in color and design so technically if you get one, it’s a collector’s item.
At the 2012 Oscars, American Haute couture designer Lana J. Marks designed the Cleopatra Clutch for superstar Li Bing Bing. The $400,000 clutch consisted of natural pink diamonds set in 18-carat pink gold.
What’s even cooler is the diamonds matched her gown. She owned the red carpet that year.
2) Hermes Chaine’d Ancre Bag
This $1.4 million dollar handbag looks like something straight out of “Orange Is The New Black.”
The anchor-shaped chain links are encrusted with 1,160 pieces of diamond.
A future Christmas gift?
3) Hermes Birkin Bag by Ginza Tanaka
Samantha Jones wanted a Birkin so bad that she name-dropped Lucy Liu in order to get one. No one waits 5 years for a Birkin!
Unfortunately, you might be waiting an eternity because designer Ginza Tanaka’s is a whopping $1.4 million.
It has 2,000 diamonds on the outer shell and a pear-shaped 8-karat centerpiece.
4) Hermes Kelly Rose Gold
This $2 million handbag has 1,160 diamonds.
Unfortunately, it is also extremely small, so use the space wisely.
Don’t be upset about not being able to afford such a lavish handbag, that’s where Joli Closet comes in. They are the leading secondhand website specializing in luxury and designer handbags. Shop from Hermes to Chanel to Prada!
5) Mouawad 1001 Nights Diamond Purse
Drum roll, please…
This $3.8 million handbag is the most expensive luxury handbag. In fact, it holds the Guinness World Record for being the most valuable handbag ever made.
This handbag is an 18-karat gold heart-shape. It has a total of 4,517 diamonds, comprised of 105 yellow diamonds, 56 pink diamonds, and 4,356 colorless diamonds.
