    An Hermes Diamond Birkin Birkin is the jewel in the crown of any collection. This spectacular and extremely rare piece represents the pinnacle of handbags. The exterior is done in classic, timeless, Shiny Black Porosus Crocodile with two rolled top handles and a flap closure. The bold Black is offset 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 matching Black Chevre leather and features one sip pocket and one zip pocket.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There is extremely faint surface scratching to the base of the Spindle, and more heavy scratching to the backs of the Plaques de Sanglons. There is faint creasing to the crocodile on the gussets and just under the spindle, as well as faint scratching throughout the exterior and a number of very small waterspots. The interior shows very light denting throughout. This bag comes with a diamond studded solid 18K white gold Cadena lock, two keys and a clochette, as well as a dustbag and a non-original Hermes box.
