The Most Expensive Purse in the World

When I published a photo of the second most expensive purse in the world yesterday, I guess it was inevitable that someone would ask what the most expensive one was. David Davis, this is for you:

This Mouawad purse sold a Christie’s auction in Hong Kong in 2011 for $3.8 million. It is encrusted in diamonds and took 8,800 hours to make. I’m wondering where you would carry a purse like that? Certainly not to the movies!

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I can sorta understand this purse’s value both as an art piece and because of the value of the diamonds, but still think the second most expensive purse in the world is just plain ugly. I wouldn’t buy it in a garage sale.

    The Oscars maybe? Then you lock it up in a safe and never use it until you get tired of insuring it, so you sell it. It will NEVER be used.

    Here’s a point to mention: many people who own very expensive jewelry have copies made in cheaper stones. They wear cheap copies and store expensive jewels. So what’s the point? Is it an investment? If so, aren’t there easier to manage investments?
