Birkin Bag Brings the Bucks

Posted on September 16th, 2014 by Goldman Buyer

Ladies, how much are you willing to spend on a handbag? While some draw the line at a couple hundred bucks, others may be more willing to splurge – but would you pay six figures?

Hermes Birkin bags are among the most coveted handbags in the world, with the average price tag at around $10,000. This may seem steep to most, but what about the crocodile skin bag with 18-carat white gold clasps and 245 studded diamonds expected to break the previous record of over $200,000? Described as “the rares and most desirable handbag in the world,” this particular Birkin will be sold at Heritage Auction in Beverly Hills September 23.

Birkin bags were introduced in 1984, and were named after film actress Jane Birkin. They were an instant hit, and remain so to the rich and famous today. The previous record for highest price paid for a Birkin bag was $203,150 for a red model in 2011.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I drove all the way from the south side just to sell my silver to Chicago Gold Gallery because of the knowledge and professionalism I received on the phone. They gave me top dollar for my silver and were so fast and friendly. I definitely recommend this business!"

Can't say enough about this place.

This is the most welcoming, non-pretentious place to do business! I was researching where to sell sterling silver I had and ended up choosing here based on the other great reviews. They walked me through the whole process and answered my questions. I got a great price for my items & will go there again.

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
