Hermes Diamond Crocodile Birkin

Those behind the Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork Bag still have me confused and disgusted, but really annoyed that so many large publications and articles are throwing the “most expensive handbag in the world” title to that atrocious piece of work. That LV junk is at most half the price of a bag that truly deserves some praise, the Hermes Diamond Crocodile Birkin.

The Hermes Diamond Crocodile Birkin is what Maybach is to cars, Schloss Neuschwanstein is to castles, Monaco is to luxurious nightlife, and Purse Blog is to handbag enthusiasts…! Ultra lux croc on a Hermes Birkin is enough to make you beg at a strange SA’s feet, but paired with 14 carats of pave diamonds on the signature Birkin lock and clasp would send me into a continuous groveling state. That sight would not be pretty. Recently Doyle New York auctioned off a Hermes Diamond Croc Birkin which sold for $64,800. That price is reasonable, compared to a $140,000 one-of-a-kind pink crocodile Birkin bag with diamond hardware that was sold in one day’ when the Hermes Palm Beach Store opened in February 2007 (via Palm Beach Daily News).

While a Croc Birkin is one my dream list, the diamond encrusted croc Birkin seems a bit far fetched for me, but is still a masterpiece and the pinnacle of all handbags. To whoever keeps pushing that LV bag as the most expensive in the world, feast your eyes on a bag that makes the LV tag of $45k look like chump change next to $140k.

    AMAZING!!!Great post,loved reading it and of course i agree,please LV has nothing on Hermes!

    Here’s my two cents.

    Limited edition bags, in general, are all atrocious and tacky. They feed women’s inner desire for everything cute that they fancy as chic. I do love the birkin, but the diamonds and croc skin are too much.

    I can’t disagree that the patchwork bag is much worse, though!

    Hi I am trying to find out the years with the letters in Hermes handbags.
    My friend inherited a whole collection from her grandmother and we don’t know what each year the letter stand for I would appreciate your help the letters are Y–P–I–K–J–L–T–E–O–X–F–B–R. She may be selling them soon if anyone wants to know. I will let you know when she is ready just e-mail me if you would like to buy. Right now she is holding on to them because of her grandmother was her best friend.
    Thank You

    You definitely are both unappreciative persons. And shows that you both have don’t money to get one that is why you rant about how ugly LV and Hermes are.

    That is your defense mechanism translated to OH MY GOD I WISH I COULD HAVE THAT BAG!! Then cries.


  • mayecks

    hi… i dream than one of these days i can find someone who can buy me a luxurious bag like you. ahemmm. just dreamin’

  • Victoria

    I have the black diamond croco if anyone is interested to purchase it.


    You people are sick and need help. Who would pay this much money for a bag? There are people starving out there. This is the reason why the world needs to come to an end ASAP. You “ladies” are useless.

  • Naggy

    Someone please throw this at my tuition? (ipad)

  • Ting

    This bag is so fine and my boyfriend Kenny is completely daft enough to buy me one.

  • Cris

    Beautiful bag, although i don’t know how practical. If a scratch was placed on it or a diamond fell, I am sure the owner would have an heart attack. Beside that horrible bag featured in that article, otherwise LV makes very nice handbags. Did anyone see that ridiculous Hermes Kelly Doll bag with a face on it? I wouldn’t wear even if it was given to me for free!

  • Kinsley

    Anybody know how i can buy a black patented croc birkin? And how much would it cost me? Thanks for any info.

  • Rich ppl buy birkin just to show off that they are rich n pathetic..kill all this rare crocs what a shame..n do u know how thy get this crocs,they use kitten n pups as bait…cruel human assholes
