1001 Nights Diamond Purse Valued at $3.8 Million

We've all seen those websites that talk about extravagant and overpriced goodies with the person who has everything. And now, for a woman who has so much money that she doesn’t need to put any in her purse, the veteran jewelry firm, House of Mouawad, has created the 1001 Nights Diamond Purse which is valued at $3.8 million.

The purse is such an oddity that the Guinness Book of World Records has designated the handbag as the most expensive in the world.

This glitzy heart-shaped purse is set with more than 4,500 diamonds, including 105 yellow gems, 56 pink stones and 4,356 white diamonds. The total carat weight is 381.92 carats.

The bag is made of 18K gold. It was made though the efforts of 10 craftsmen who worked for four months and put in 1,100 hours to create it.

The purse was displayed at the Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition in Qatar a few weeks ago.
