You might have a closet of Hermes Birkins, but I’m sure that you are looking for the one bag that will be your prized possession. And it doesn’t get rarer than the Hermes Diamond Birkin in Rouge H Crocodile. Estimated to fetch $80,000 as a part of Holiday Luxury Auction at the Heritage Auctions’, Dallas, Texas, you can catch live previews at Beverly Hills and New York City. The auction will also bring as many as 100 of the most collectible Hermes items ever created. Matt Rubinger, Director of Luxury Accessories at Heritage, said, “The Hermes Diamond collection — known as the Exceptional Collection — is the most limited of all Hermes productions. With only a few pieces created each year, even major collectors cannot find these pieces. In signature Rouge Hermes crocodile, a Birkin from this collection is singularly the most desirable bag in the world and, between its desirability and its rarity, truly an investment piece. With solid white gold and diamond hardware, this bag is the height of luxury.”
Suppose you’re not a Hermes fan, you can opt for some classic and vintage Chanel, in leathers like a crocodile, ostrich, and python; or some famed Louis Vuitton collectibles including the Vuitton travel pieces and trunks. Or, if you are getting nostalgic, you can even check out some Judith Leiber beaded minaudiere evening bags dated to the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.
