World’s most expensive Hermes Birkin bag for sale in Dubai

Gold and diamond encrusted Birkin costs half a million dirhams

The most expensive Hermes Birkin bag made, which costs AED500,000 ($136,135), is now on sale in Dubai.

Online boutique for pre-owned luxury designer goods TheLuxuryCloset.com is carrying the Hermes Red Porosus Crocodile, which is designed with 18K white gold and diamonds.

The Birkin 35 bag, part of the most exclusive and expensive bag collections in the world, was custom made.

Birkin handbags are usually sold to top Hermes clients and then resold in auctions only. The seller, however, decided to give it to The Luxury Closet rather than, for example, to Christies Auctions, according to the online firm.

The bag’s clasp bears the 18K white gold and diamonds. The cadena lock alone is comprised of 68.4 grams of 18-karat white gold and encrusted with 40 white round brilliant diamonds, totaling 1.64 carats.

It reportedly takes about 18 hours to craft the handbag, The Luxury Closet said.
