Humans are innately fascinated with the rare and exotic. It's in our DNA to be drawn to something that is unattainable. Whenever we hear those three little words "the most expensive" our interest is instantly piqued. So for all of you fashionistas, let's take a look at the world's most expensive handbag.
According to Guinness Book of World Records, the "1001 Nights Diamond Purse" by the Mouawad Company is certified as the world's most expensive handbag ever created. It is valued at a whopping $3.8 million! Normally, it is hard to find the value in uber expensive items because they possess a little "fluff" in the price, but not this time. The handbag is crafted from 18-carat gold and adorned by over 381 carats of diamonds. There is a grand total of 4,517 individual gems; 105 of which are yellow diamonds, 56 pink, and the remaining 4,516 are colorless. The glimmering bag took over four months and 1,100 hours to complete with ten artisans working on it.
The purse comes from the House of Mouawad, a Dubai-based fashion house that was established in 1890. The dazzling purse was a creation from Mouawad's co-guardian, Pascal Mouawad. When asked about the design, he stated, "The Mouawad 1001 Nights Diamond Purse is designed to mesmerize with its lavish attention to detail and elaborate workmanship incorporating thousands of diamonds." I think it is safe to say that Mouawad accomplished his goal because the "1001 Nights Diamond Purse" is the epitome of what we all long for in a "most expensive" item. It comes from an exotic place and is covered in diamonds. It is almost like a fairy tale in its own right.
