The Clasp by Stefano Canturi is a high-end handbag with a price tag of $780,000. The luxurious piece is handcrafted by the jeweler, and inspired by the roaring ‘20s art deco era. The Clasp bag is modeled after a famous Erté illustration completed for a George White’s Scandals revue in the late 1920s.

The ultra-delicate and highly detailed creation is made up of diamonds, sapphires and rubies along with 18k gold and black sapphire pearl embellishments. This $780,000 stunning bag is a piece commissioned to commemorate the style of Erté, and is on display in his home city of St. Petersburg.

While some may argue that this accessory is overpriced, others deem it as priceless due to the artful nature and delicate details that truly make it one-of-a-kind.
