    Default The world's most expensive handbags

    from Forbes.com - Business News, Financial News, Stock Market Analysis, Technology & Global Headline News


    The Chanel "Diamond Forever" Classic Bag

    $261,000


    This is one item you won't want to return if you are lucky enough to get it for the holidays. Debuting in December, the "Diamond Forever" classic bag boasts 334 diamonds totaling 3.56 carats, set in 18-carat white gold hardware. The long shoulder straps are made with the same white gold. Only 13 are available worldwide, and five will be available stateside.

    Hermes Matte Crocodile Birkin Bag

    $120,000

    Named after French singer/songwriter Jane Birkin, the bag (pictured here) is like the one sold at auction house Doyle New York. The clasp of this 30-centimeter tote boasts 10 carats of white diamonds. And its body is made of crocodile. There is only available for sale worldwide.

    Lana Marks Cleopatra Bag

    $100,000

    Each year, Marks produces one Cleopatra clutch for retail. This year's limited edition (pictured here) is made of metallic silver alligator skin and a clasp encrusted with 1,500 black and white diamond set in 18-carat white gold.

    Leiber Precious Rose

    $92,000

    The Precious Rose is precious indeed. Made in the shape of a perfect flower, the bag is made with 1,016 diamonds totaling 42.56 carats, 1,169 pink sapphires and 800 tourmalines. If you are inclined to purchase it, you'd better do it quick: There is only one available in the world.

    LV Tribute Patchwork Bag

    $42,000

    Though this tote, made of 15 different Louis Vuitton patterns cut up and reassembled, has gotten mixed media reviews, the four available in U.S. stores have sold out. But 20 are available in Louis Vuitton boutiques throughout Europe and Asia.

    Gadino Bag by Hilde Palladino

    $38,470

    Upon first glance, the crocodile Gadino Bag made by Norwegian designer Hilde Palladino doesn't appear to be anything special. But look closely and you’ll see the glint of 39 white diamonds strategically placed in clasps made of white gold. It’s little touches like that that give it the same price tag as an SUV.

    Fendi Selleria Bag

    $38,000

    A bag like this one can be made to order with sable and chinchilla, two of the world's rarest and most luxurious animal skins. It's far from precious but big enough to accommodate necessities such as a wallet, keys, cellphone and makeup bag.

    Nancy Gonzalez Porousus Bag

    $30,000

    Made with a rare, almost uniformly scaled crocodile skin, the Porousus Bag can be customized by color, skin, size and hardware.

    © LEIBER

    LEIBER Dandelion Suede Gator Handbag

    $15,000

    With yellow a popular spring color, this alligator LEIBER bag is sure to make a splash this season among the bag-obsessed. It comes with two external pockets and a strap as well as a clasp made of 18-carat gold. Only four have been made of this style and are still available.

    I get complements all the time on my Target bags. Although, I do like the Birkin Crocodile bag, I wouldn't spend that kind of money on one of those if I had all the money in the world. But, if I had all the money in the world, they'd probably give me all that shit for free anyway.

    Are any of these recent? I seem to remember seeing most of them several years back.

    I love bags, but I'm really hard on them. I can see myself shopping at TJMaxx sometime with my diamond-encrusted shoulder bag only to look down and find a couple came loose and are now missing. Do I get automatic gem replacement insurance with one of those?

    Those priices are obscene. Only a brandname addicted fashion victim would be so stupid as to fork over that amount for such fugly items.

    The only one that's pretty is the yellow one, but I don't think I'd want to carry a crocodile around.
