    Hermes Extraordinary Collection 30cm Diamond, Matte Himalayan Nilo Crocodile Birkin Bag with 18K White Gold Hardware
    Pristine Condition
    12" Width x 8" Height x 6" Depth
    A 30cm Diamond Himalayan Birkin is possibly the rarest and most desirable handbag in the world. This bag features a subtle coloration, done in Nilo Crocodile, that is meant to evoke images of the majestic Himalayan mountains. This dyeing process takes many painstaking hours to complete, as the lighter the hue, the more difficult the process. That coloration is paired perfectly with 18K White Gold Hardware, which is studded with White Diamonds. The cadena lock is made of 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 de Sanglons 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 Gris Cendre Chevre Leather and features one zip and one slip pocket. This is arguably the most rare, spectacular, and jaw-dropping bag to ever be made, and it is likely the only time a bag of this caliber will be offered on the luxury resale market.


    This bag is in Pristine Condition. The original plastic protection is still on both sides of both Plaques de Sanglons, the lock, and all four Clou. This bag comes with keys and a clochette in their own dustbag, as well as a separate dustbag and box for the lock. A rain protector and Hermes literature also come in their own dustbags. This bag includes the original tissue paper, felt protection, full size dustbag, and limited edition Hermes box.
