As the name suggests, the Precious Rose Bag is molded to the shape of a rose flower in full bloom. As much as the design sounds pretty simple, Leiber uses high quality raw materials including metals and leather.

It also comes in different colors like blue, pink and red.

Cleopatra bag designs are some of the most expensive purse brands perhaps because Lana Marks creates only one design every year. With half a million, you can have your own piece made from alligator hide and a metallic silver hue. The magic doesn’t end there; these bags made for expensive wallets feature a clasp created from 18-karat white gold including 1,500 white and black diamonds.

We are realizing a pattern with expensive purse brands-they are decorated with some of the most precious stones available in the world. The Birkin Bag, which is a combined creation of both Hermes and the Japanese design icon Ginza Tanaka is fashioned from platinum metal and decorated with 2,000 diamonds. The bag also features a breathtaking diamond sling which can be detached and used as a necklace or bracelet. At the front of the purse sits a pear-shaped 8-karat center diamond which can also be removed and turned into a brooch. Expensive wallets do not just splash money on this one-every penny is worth it.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, this is the most expensive handbag in the world. We are not surprised about this discovery because apart from the fact that 10 professional artisans worked on the Diamond Bag, the time required to complete the task was 8,800 hours to be exact. In addition, the purse, shaped as a heart, was hammered from 18-karat gold with more precious diamonds on the surface including 10 yellow diamonds, 4,356 colorless diamonds and 56 pink diamonds.
Sometimes we think expensive wallets are an answer for every woman’s problem. They are just so adorable and loyal, you are happy when you have one piece. However, money is the only key to having these expensive bags in your closet-when you have it, just say the word and you have it.
