Remember this bag that was expected to get $200k in auction? Well, the 30 cm diamond matte Himlayan Nilo crocodile Birkin bag complete with 18k white gold hardware and 242 diamonds came up just a little short at $185,000. However, the iconic Hermès status piece still made history, becoming the second-most expensive bag to sell at an auction. Another Birkin holds the number one position at $203,150— a shiny rouge 30 cm Porous diamond variation.

The sale was made at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills at a “Luxury Accessories Signature Auction” including 480 handbags, reports WWD. The buyer remains anonymous, but good luck being able to walk around inconspicuously carrying that thing!
