House of Mouawad Make World’s Most Expensive Bag | 1001 Nights Diamond Purse Breaks Records

Posted on: Feb 16

1001 Diamond Nights PurseWe've all admired expensive handbags, but none quite like the 1001 Nights Diamond Purse from the House of Mouawad. The jewel encrusted clutch, which is valued at $3.8 million, was recently named the world's most expensive by Guinness World Records.

When you realize what's in the handbag you begin to realize why it's so pricy. The purse is made from 18 karat gold studded with 4517 diamonds. In all there are 105 yellow stones, 56 pink ones, and a whopping 4356 colorless jewels. This clutch is certainly no lightweight; it weighs an impressive 381.92 karats. Ten artisans worked on the clutch for around 8800 hours, under the watchful eye of designer Robert Mouawad.

The 1001 Nights Diamond Purse isn't the House of Mouawad's first record breaker. You might remember the fashion house worked with Victoria's Secret to create the $11 million Very Sexy Fantasy Bra in 2003. Clearly these guys know a thing or two about extravagance!

If you want to see the 1001 Nights Diamond Purse up close, visit the Doha Jewelry and Watches Exhibition in Qatar. It'll be on display there until Sunday. If it needs a new home after that, I could certainly find a space in my closet!
