World's Most Expensive Purse

GinzaTanaka, the Japanese jewelry firm who created the world's most expensive handbag last year, is finally selling it! They previously made a bathing suit made out of woven gold.... rich people are silly, no?

The 1.9 million dollar bag, currently on display in London for its Jewelry Week, is made of pure platinum and 2,182 diamonds totaling 208 carats. the bag features a diamond shoulder strap that can be removed and worn as a necklace, plus the large (8ct) pear-shaped diamond decorating the front of the bag can be removed and worn as a brooch.

It's currently on display at jewelery shops around London to mark the inaugural London Jewellery Week.

Holy crap! I'd take it out with me on my lazy days to hit the gym - IF I was a rich girl ;-)!

Ick - totally vulgar, perfect for someone with tons of money but little taste.
