$3.8 Million Diamond Hand Bag- Florida Gold Store

As a male I tend to be dismayed at the amazing prices women are willing to spend on purses, of course I don’t blink an eye at thinking about spending thousands on a luxury timepiece.  The majority of high end typically sell for two to four thousand dollars. Today I just found out about a purse with a price tag that has actually broken world records.

Mouawad, one of largest jewelry designers has created a hang bag that literally dripping with diamonds. “The Mouawas 1001 Nights Diamond Purse,” was created and released last year; its estimated value is a whopping $3.8 million dollars. Crafted into the shape of an heart pocketbook, the purse is 18ct gold and features 4,517 diamonds (105 yellow, 56 pink and 4,356 white). With a total of 381.92 carats this “small” purse is more like a bowling ball on a chain.

The Mouawad was created by ten artisans who tolled tirelessly for over 8,800 hours on the purse. Each of the thousands of diamonds had to be painstakingly attached to the bag by hand and only the finest quality gems were used. Upon its completion the Guinness Wold Records officially designated it the most valuable handbag in the world.
