But many would surprise to know the prices of these bags which are enough to purchase a good apartment in any posh city. According to Christie’s international director of handbags and accessories, Matt Rubinger, Himalaya family is selling these pieces which are primarily diamond pieces. There is a combination of 245 diamonds with white gold detailing. Its top position in the market is due to the diamond hardware by Himalaya. There is a rumor that the Himalaya style will be discontinued by the company as dying of its leather take at least 48 hours. A brand new Himalaya takes around six years.
