Questions About A Rare Beauty
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Emeralds are quite rare. This gemstone is rarer and more expensive than a diamond.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 3, 2023
    Birkins are so rare because of a range of factors. Each is handmade by a single expert craftsperson at the celebrated French luxury house Hermès, so this is going to limit how many can be produced in a year. A limited assortment of leathers and colors is released annually, and bags made in exotic skins such as lizard, ostrich and porosus and niloticus crocodile are exceedingly rare. Demand for the bags is astronomically high because the Birkin, which debuted in 1984, is considered an iconic design and is a coveted item all over the world. Additionally, customers are required to have a purchase history with Hermès in order to buy a new Birkin, and the company only allows boutiques to purchase a specified number of Birkins bi-annually. And Birkins are among the most expensive handbags in the world, so this isn’t an accessory that you’re going to see everyday. Shop an assortment of Hermès Birkin bags on 1stDibs.

Emeralds are believed by many to symbolize royalty, love and mysticism. On 1stDibs, shop a selection of emerald jewelry from some of the world’s top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
