The Hermes Diamond Himalaya Birkin bag is the most expensive ever sold

A press release read: "The diamond pieces created by Hermes are exceptional, but none are nearly as iconic as the Himalaya. It is believed that only one or two of the Diamond Himalayas are produced each year, globally, making it one of the lowest production runs for handbags."

The gorgeous bag was produced in 2008 and sold to its former owner a year later. The previous record for the world's most expensive bag ever sold was another Birkin, a fuchsia creation decorated with diamonds, which went for more than £150,000.
