Inspired by the fascinating tales of Scheherazade, the ‘Mouawad 1001 Nights Diamond Purse’ is currently the most expensive purse in the world. It was designed by Robert Mouawad and it took ten artisans no less than 8,800 hours to finish it.
The heart-shaped purse was handcrafted in 18-karat gold, and studded with 4,356 colorless diamonds, 105 yellow diamonds and 56 pink ones. The total is a whooping 4,517 diamonds adding up to 381.92 karats. This all translates into $3.8 million.
Now you know why the Mouawad 1001 Nights Diamond Purse is the most expensive handbag in the world. It was unveiled at the Doha Jewellery and Watched Exhibition by the House of Mouawad, and it will continue to be displayed until Sunday.
