World's most exclusive handbag - $377,000

A matte white Himalaya Niloticus crocodile diamond Birkin 30 handbag was sold Wednesday in Hong Kong for over $377,000, making it the most expensive handbag ever sold at auction. Described as 'the rarest and most desirable handbag in the world' the Herm├Ęs 'Birkin' bag is made from crocodile skin and studded with diamonds.

The bag is encrusted with 245 diamonds and all the fittings are in 18-karat white gold. Experts say the bag is the most spectacular one ever made by the Parisian fashion house. Luxury connoisseurs consider Birkin bags to be the ultimate status symbols, typically reserved for the elite. Hermes doesn’t disclose how many Diamond Himalaya bags it produces, But Christie’s estimates that only one or two are made each year.
Victoria Beckham is famously fond of Hermes handbags, reportedly owning a collection worth over £1.2 million. Kim Kardashian has so many that she uses one as a gym bag.
