A diamond-encrusted handbag, named as the most expensive in the world, has been put up for sale.

Officially known as the Mouawad 1001 Nights Diamond Purse, the one-off accessory holds the Guinness World Record for being the most valuable handbag ever produced.

The handbag has an original price of US$3.8m in 2010.

Designed by the jeweller Robert Mouawad, is handcrafted from 18-karat gold and covered with more than 4,500 diamonds. The rocks are mostly colourless but 105 yellow and 56 pink diamonds have also been incorporated into the design.

Mouawad also holds a number of other world records, including for creating the most expensive bra in the world. It was covered with 2,800 diamonds, sapphires and amethysts and weighed 2,200 carats.
