Inspiration and cost of 1001 Nights Diamond Purse
The heart-shaped purse dubbed the ‘1001 Nights Diamond Purse’ was – according to Robb Report – inspired by the most epic Middle Eastern tale One Thousand and One Nights, which is filled with romance, intrigue and fantasy.
The purse was first put on display at a collector’s handbag auction in Hong Kong in 2017 and was offered at an original price of GHc26 million ($3.8 million).
The luxury piece is encrusted with 105 yellow, 56 pink and 4,356 colourless diamonds – a total weight of 381.92 carats.
According to the report, it took ten highly skilled artisans working continuously for over 8,800 man-hours to create this piece.
