    You know when we told you the Hermes Birkin bag was a better investment than gold? Well it turns out it’s worth even more than that: £300k to be precise.

    A white crocodile skin Birkin bag has become the most expensive in the world after being sold for $379,261 at a Christie’s auction in Hong Kong.

    That’s 25% more than experts thought the bag would fetch.

    The bag features 18k white gold and diamond hardware, and Christie’s describes it as, ‘an exceptional, matte white Himalaya Niloticus crocodile diamond Birkin’.

    Here’s a video below so you can get the full picture.

    The more affordable Birkin bags are around £9,000, positively peanuts compared to this.

    The winning bidder has remained anonymous, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it was a celeb like Rihanna or Kim Kardashian.
