Top Ten Most Expensive Women's Handbags

Most Expensive Women's Handbags in the World

Top Ten Most Expensive Bags and Purses You Can Buy!

First a request, please don't forget to vote in the survey below for your favorite bag from the list. I have been quite surprised to see which one most people like the most!

Also, don't forget to checkout the video, which has slightly different prices for the bags, as we here have never actually bought one of these bags, we can't vouch for the prices. Suffice to say that you are going to need to be extremely free and easy with your cash (or with someone else's) to get yourself one of them. We know that women love handbags, bags and purses but just why they love them so much is more difficult to fathom. It can't be genetic, as, strange as it may seem, handbags have only been around for about 150 years. The handbag fashion only really started in the late nineteenth century and it was not until around 1920 that handbags or bags became an essential item of a woman's wardrobe!

Louis Vuitton was the first manufacturer of "designer bags" and since he started it all off plenty of others have jumped on the designer bag bandwagon, no doubt seeing a good opportunity to make a lot of money by turning what should be just an ordinary utilitarian article into a prized object of fantasies and dreams. Why is a designer bag so expensive ? well, why not ? If people are willing to pay ever-increasing amounts of money for a bag to carry stuff about in, then why deprive them of that God-given right ?

Designer Handbags are Expensive - But Just How Expensive are the Most Expensive Designer Bags ?

The following is the list of the top ten most expensive womens handbags - which I obtained by scouring the Internet and piecing together the evidence. Check them out then rush off and buy one (well something similar anyway) !

1. The Mouawad's 1001 Nights Diamond Purse - $3.8 million

Officially certified by Guinness World Records the Mouawad 1001 Nights Diamond Purse is now the most expensive designer handbag in the world at $3.8 million. The heart-shaped purse is handcrafted from 18kt gold and has 4,517 diamonds (4,356 colorless, 105 yellow, 56 pink) with a total weight of 381.92 carats. It was made by ten artisans who worked on it for a total of 8,800 hours.

2. The Hermes Birkin bag created by Japanese designer Ginza Tanaka - $1.9 million

This Hermes bags was apparently sold in 2008 for around $1.9 million. It is made of platinum and has over 2,000 diamonds. It is also versatile, so that in addition to being a handbag you can also use the diamond strap as a necklace or bracelet by removing it from the bag. The bag itself has an 8-carat pear shaped shimmering diamond that can also be used separately

3. The Chanel "Diamond Forever" Classic Handbag - $261,000

The "Diamond Forever" classic handbag boasts 334 diamonds for a total of 3.56 carats, in 18-carat white gold. The shoulder straps are also made from white gold. There are only 13 available worldwide, with five of them being in the USA.

4. Lana Marks Cleopatra Bag - $250,000

Lana Marks produces one Cleopatra clutch for retail each year. The one in the picture is made of metallic silver alligator skin and a clasp with 1,500 black and white diamonds in 18-carat white gold. Helen Mirren wore the $250,000 Lana Marks Cleopatra Clutch at the 2007 Academy Awards. Lana only allows one star per year to carry her handmade diamond studded designs down the crimson carpet. How snooty is that ?

5. Urban Satchel Louie Vuitton Bag - $150,000

The Louie Vuitton Urban Satchel Bag is created from all sorts of urban junk e.g. cigarette packets, water bottle, tea bags and band aid. Apparently this handbag doesn't actually exist and was put together as a spoof by an artist who I believe is called 14 (apologies if I spelt her name wrong) - and who resides here - http://galleryoftheabsurd.typepad.com/14/2007/03/the_worlds_most.html - if it doesn't exist then it should and at a $150,000 a throw I think she should make a few more, who knows someone may have $150,000 looking for a home?

6. Hermes Matte Crocodile Birkin Bag - $120,000

Named after British singer/actress Jane Birkin. The clasp of this tote boasts 10 carats of white diamonds. The bag itself is made of crocodile. You can get cheaper versions sarting at around $5000

      People pay millions for a rare stamp, so there is nothing to be surprised off. When the rich people spend their money harmlessly to others, we should be happy that they did not drive up the price for what the ordinary people consider as necessity. When people buy things, they do help the economy and provide employment. We all should be happy the wealthy people do spend their money from time to time, even for things that you will not buy for the price it shows. Believe it or not, it is only happens in a real "free country".

      Hi readers, thanks for the comments on my most expensive handbags page ! Yes you are right idig the urban bag is amusing, created by an art student I think as a bit of subversive fun. The problem of security guards is of course an ever present one when you are really rich, when you're really poor you just have to worry about being beaten up in your cardboard box :-) - best to be just in the middle - ah! the Tao of Goldilocks! Careermommy I applaud your choice and excellent taste !

      Apart from that... they're very beautiful bags! But of course very, very expensive. I would have loved to see a reproduction of these bags with fake stones -- but of course this would have been a copyright issue. My favorite is the rose bag, it's really lovely. :)

      I have a LV that was purchased four years ago for around 900 bucks. Tote it everyday everywhere. Still looks pretty good and has held up beautifully. Will tote it till it falls apart and if I can afford it, I will buy another to replace it. Best bag I ever had. Oh and by the way the reason I bought it is I don't like changing bags. Wanted one to last as long as possible and so far I have not been disappointed.

      Yes, Marie I agree BUT I know just the girl who wants one since her husband is so wealthy! I wanted to see which were the most expensive bags for women. Venessa Bryant (Kobe's wife, of Laker fame) recently stated in an interview that she was tired of the same old handbags that ALL other women had. She has had Hermes, LV, Marc Jacob, Chanel, etc. since she was a teen. She married Bryant when she was 17 or 18. So, maybe little miss "eat them eat cake" should purchase SOME of the bags that were mentioned here. Maybe someone who has her email address can forward this article to her, so she can go sjopping. ^ ^

      Hello,

      thank you for the very interesting information! I personally don't understand why having a garbage bag of an "excelling" is all that great. If you have money, then congradulations!! I hope u worked hard and deserve the money you earn. I hope you all just understand that all these very expensive items are only for looks and appearance. Someone who is moral and uses common sense (please forgive if i attend anyone) is not even going to think anything of your expensive bag. I honestly do think that the most expensive purse is very beautiful. It's a wonderful piece of art! I personally would not even waist my time on it! But for all those august people who can afford it....actually. I think its very incoherent to purchase it...even if it is beautiful!! Anyway, this really left me super shocked!! Great great blot!! You yourself seem to be a very interesting person by all your responded to comments. Your writing is very intriguing!! Keep up the great work!! You must fey tired of writing back to all the comments huh? Haha.

      mucho surprised 5 years ago

      I think it's amazing to even think that someone could spend 1.9 million on 'a bag', when such large amounts of money could be invested in say 10 HOUSES which could provide a huge rental income cumulatively (or be given to charity to save lives of a small 3rd world country perhaps). This is coming from a male perspective, so I don't quite understand women's fascination with a bag, but I think one thing is clear: the only ones who are buying such bags are not self made millionaires because every self made millionaire will tell you every penny counts (I've got relatives who can truly attest to that statement) and in the rare case that a self made millionaire purchases a 1.9 million dollar bag, it is for his wife/ ...or the owner did not purchase the bag, but had one made for herself given its her bag company in the first place.

Because even $1000 for one is just ridiculous... But then again, rich people don't care. They splurge on what's not necessary. Shame.

      Thanks for this great post women likes handbag when women go out, there are lots of things that they need to take, such as cosmetics, mirrors, purse and cell phones. These things cannot be carried by their hands, so they choose handbags to serve as their friends. When you read at this you may see that women are troublesome, yes, to some extent. Women should makeup when they attend some formal occasions, so they need to take their cosmetic to refine their makeup.

If America had a good reason for being broke, you could maybe use that, but really they didn't have a hurricane like half the rest of the world!

      Hi Anna, - thank you for your thoughtful comment, and well done on finding so many designer bags in thrift shops ! I'm surprised some of them are starting to flake inside, like you say, you would expect some durability for such expensive bags. Nevertheless, good quality bags do generally represent a good investment, as they tend to increase in value over time, as some people collect them, provided they are in good condition. Good luck in your handbag buying adventures in future :-)

      Anna Leah (pinay) 5 years ago

      I so much enjoyed reading all the comments! I own a few authentic LV, Gucci, Fendi, Coach, Dior and Prada bags that I collected over the years and most of them are vintage and only bought for a fraction of the price from Thrift shops, pre-owned stores and on-line shops, all in their original dustbags. I like vintage designer bags because I believe the vintage ones are classic, never goes out of style, and at least, in my opinion, of obvious authenticity (compared to the costly latest models and their 99% replicas nowadays). Like most of you said, bags are women's status symbol and I carry my bags with pride. It's sad though that I couldn't carry my precious LV monogram bags all the time! Not with oily hands or in bad weathers! Cowhide leather in monogram Louis Vuitton bags easily get dirty, darken and leave permanent mark even their boxes and paper bags and I don't understand why an expensive item as such could easily blemish in a blink of an eye. Even my vintage Gucci bags are already starting to flake inside and scuff! Is it really worth buying? What happens to quality and durability that you pay for especially for expensive brand new stuff? Very ironic, huh?!

      i currently live in an Asian country and i see the craze for LVs and Coach handbags around me.. even if some of the women do not earn enough to pay for their mortgages, they most definitely buy these expensive handbags. it baffles me as to why they are so crazy about these labels especially when they don't even have enough money to spare. however i realized that it has become a status symbol for them more than anything else and it is really sad to see so. Anyway,more than the information, i like your view points.

      Hi Cherie thanks for the comment - I guess you are right but for people rich enough to buy the most expensive bags in the world a couple of hundred thousand dollars is not much

      Hi Helen thanks for the comment - I'm surprised at how popular the Birkin is - 'classic' as you say, just an ordinary black bag for $120,000 - strange that it should cost so much

      Interesting Hub, Birkin a classic favourite, would be my choice. But a ridiculous price. I'll stick to the High Street.

      Hey Singular Investor,

      Yes, handbag hooks are helpful in so many ways. They can keep your handbag in place wherever you go. Many women face the dilemma where to put their bags wherever they go, like in the restaurant. A friend of mine owns a thrift store of such handbag hooks. Check this out http://www.handbaghookhanger.co.uk/. You can see some cool designs of hooks for handbags at this website. :)

      By the way, thanks for correcting the link to my post.

      Did I say that ? I can't remember. People who have a lot of money can do what they want with it of course, it's just a pity they don't mind paying thousands for a bag to carry stuff around in, but they squeal like stuck pigs when you ask them to give their employees a pay rise. Where do they get there money from in the first place ? By paying people too little for the jobs they do. Of course buying expensive handbags spreads their money about a bit but I just think if they paid people more it would be a better use of 'their' money. But thanks for the comment anyway - buying the most expensive handbags in the world is fine for the rich who can afford them, once they have fleeced the poor to pay for them.

      why you want to encourage people not to buy those chanel products where the money you spend is not yours its their money. . all chanel products are very quality in terms of its material used. . your money is worth when you buy these products. .

      Hi JMW - thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment, you're right, I don't know what Louis Vuitton were thinking of with that awful garbage bag, trying to be trendy I guess. Good luck with the Hermes purchasing plan ! $1.9 million dollars would make quite a present for some lucky girl :-)

      The Louis Vuitton bag was a complete shock to me that one, that bag would be that expensive two, that Louis Vuitton would make a bag that ugly because my mom (I'm 11) actually has Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Prada, and other really expensive stuff, no I'm not trying to shoe off. Bit the rose bag was amazing detail and i liked the design I thought it was smart and new. But the hermés one that was $1.9 million dollars had also amazing detail with the platinum, diamonds and the leather I would deffinetly like to buy that for my girlfriend when I'm older:) I also liked the article it was very helpful:)

      Hi Jefferson thanks for the comment - I agree with everything you said. It's all about perception and vanity etc... logos all over the place, basically you are paying to advertise somebody's stuff - if they paid me then maybe I would buy something with a logo on it, but if they want me to wear their logo then they should pay me.

      The garbage bags you mentioned are indeed garbage - and the other ones whether Gucci or Vuitton or whatever are all overpriced. As you say there are also a lot of fakes so most people think you have bought a fake anyway. But the genuine articles are better quality and will last longer and may even increase in value over time, but they are very expensive ! So why people bother with designer bags and designer shoes and designer jeans beats me - but I put up the hubpage 'cause it is interesting to see what people do with their money. BTW I checked your website and got quite a few error messages. Homer

      The Hermes Birkin created by Japanese designer Ginza Tanaka is... well nice and decently looking...but the Urban Satchel Louis Vuitton Bag and Gadino Bag by Hilde Palladino is just a total garbage... i don't think it's art in any way that i try to understand it...the rest of the bags are simple...nothing unusual except for the kind of leather they use...still unreasonably priced... wearing something expensive doesn't make you look expensive... i have seen a few people buying expensive stuff from louis vuitton and other designers and seeing them wear it didn't give justice to the "status symbol" that these items are supposedly portraying... i even remember seeing this lady in a mall wearing a fendi skirt, a gucci shoes, and chanel shirt and seriously seeing all those monograms all together is not style... it totally was a disaster! Aside from that, considering all the class AAA+ replica items that's all over the market now who's copied almost all the details of an original, i doubt even a pro can identify a fake one from an original not unless you hang the certificato all over your bag for everyone to see that you have a pricey bag... seriously, an example would be an LV bag...yes it's quite costly but i hope the price goes with the hardware they use for their zippers... why use brass anyway and sell one at such an overpriced cost, how expensive has brass become anyway?
