It’s rare that the diamond-encrusted version of something costs less than its original version, but Hermès is a rare company indeed. It’s worth noting, of course, that the diamond-encrusted versions of the brand’s popular Birkin, Kelly and Constance bags are meant to be worn around one’s neck and are therefore very small, but still: diamonds.

Although bag charms had had pockets of popularity here and there, especially in Asian markets, a high-end worldwide trend like the one going right now is something of a first, and consumers have more options than ever.
Even as an American customer, British stores are some of my favorite online shopping destinations, both for inspiration and acquisition, and the MATCHESFASHION.COM Shoe and Bag Guide is here to do both.
