£2.35M Mouawad 1001 Nights Diamond Purse - worlds most expensive handbag.

The ultimate handbagging.

As a kid, I loved the princesses and fairytales from the Arabian nights. And after growing up I wish I could bring back all magic.

But you can try for sure, as the House of Mouawad has come out with the 1001 Nights Diamond Purse.

These heart-shaped wonder that could probably feed a small nation for at least a decade, considering its value is a whopping £2.35million ($3.8 million)

The bag is handcrafted from 18kt gold, incorporates 4,517 diamonds (105 yellow, 56 pink and 4,356 colorless) with a total weight of 381.92 carats.

This jeweled masterpiece was designed by Robert Mouawad and hand crafted by ten highly skilled artisans working for a total of 8,800 hours.

The handbag recently received official certification from the Guinness World Records - the global authority on record-breaking achievements, as the most valuable handbag in the world.

This is their second world record level creation, the first being $11 million Very Sexy Fantasy Bra for Victoria’s secret.

This one-off luxury handbag was put for sale last year at Christie’s auction preview in Hong Kong.
