Hermes Unveils $2M Birkin & Kelly Handbags Made with Gold and Diamonds

| 6 March , 2012 | Reply

Hermès have outdone themselves with the release of four of the world’s most expensive handbags with each bag priced at a jaw dropping US$1.9 million each.  The miniature totes are crafted from gold and studded with thousands of precious stones and designed by jewellery and shoe designer Pierre Hardy. They are much smaller than the leather versions and are designed to be worn as a bracelet, with the handbag strap resting on the wrist.  The main compartment – which isn’t big enough to hold a pair of sunglasses – then dangles below, so it can be held in the wearer’s hand.

The rose gold version of the Kelly bag (seen above) is made with a crocodile scale effect and comes with 1,160 diamonds and took accessories designer Pierre Hardy, two years to produce the intricate creations:

‘We are a little crazy here,’ Patrick Thomas, CEO of Hermes, told the Financial Times.

And when questioned about who would buy the pricey pieces he added: ‘I have no idea. But maybe they will have two bodyguards!’

Just incredible … these are sure to be already snapped up!
