    Excellent to Pristine Condition

    The paramount luxury accessory, the Diamond Birkin is the highest expression of exceptional craftsmanship. To the astute collector, obtaining a Diamond Birkin is nearly impossible from boutiques, and thus becomes the capstone piece to an exceptional collection. With that said, it pleases us to be able to bring this incredible relic of Hermes lore to the secondary market. This Birkin bag is done in Matte Black Porosus Crocodile, one of Hermes's most highly prized skins. The bold Black is offset perfectly with 18K White Gold Hardware, which is studded with White Diamonds. The cadena lock is enshrined in 68.4 grams of 18K White Gold and encrusted with 40 VVS F White Round Brilliant Diamonds, totaling 1.64 Carats. On the bag itself, the Touret features 7 diamonds, the Pontets feature 16, and the Plaques feature 182, for a total of 8.2 Carats of VVS F Round Brilliant Diamonds set in 10 grams of 18K White Gold. The interior is done in matching Black Chevre Leather and features one slip pocket and one zip pocket. This bag includes two keys, a lock, and a clochette.

    This bag is in Excellent to Pristine Condition. The interior shows some light scuffing. This bag includes an Hermes box, dustbag, clochette dustbag, lock box and dustbag, a rain protector, care card, and a diamond information card.
