Have you ever wondered why handbags are so expensive? Well, they’re not just an accessory, they’re an investment.

A quality handbag should last at least five years and should be able to carry all of your essentials.

According to Business Insider, Birkin bags are the most expensive, ranging from $ 9,000 (roughly 152,000 rand) to half a million US dollars (8.5 million rand).

The most expensive Birkin in the world is a white Himalaya from Hermès, a French manufacturer of high fashion luxury goods.

Known as the holy grail of handbags, the bag includes 18k white gold hardware and over 200 diamonds. It was recently bought for over $ 500 million by David Oancea, a professional sports betting consultant.

“The reason I bought the Birkin bag is that I like to break records. I broke all sports betting records I wanted to break the record for the most expensive bag. I’m all for raising the bar, ”Oancea said in an interview with Business Insider.

Another proud owner of the Himalayan Hermes is Steve Harvey’s wife, Marjorie Harvey.

English fashion designer Victoria Beckham is also one of the celebrities who own a collection of Hermès Birkin bags as well as Singaporean entrepreneur Jamie Chua, who is said to have the largest collection of Birkin bags in the world with over 200 bags.

Here in South Africa, Boity is a known handbag lover. She carries a range of the most stylish and expensive designer handbags from Louis Vuitton to Channel.

Sozimi Mhlongo and his wealthy friend, Shauwn Mkhize, are also fond of luxury handbags. The couple have previously shared a video showing most of their LV bags.
