If you’re intrigued by expensive accessories, then look no further as we have compiled a list of the 15 most expensive designer belts.
Belts are one essential accessory that can be overlooked but they are perfect for adding a bit of glam. Some famous brands have gone to the next level by creating the most extravagant belts they can.
For example, the title of the most expensive belt in the world goes to Stuart Hughes, who created a custom-made Gucci diamond belt with 250 g of platinum, sold at a staggering price of $256,970! However, as this belt was a one-of-a-kind piece, it’s not available anymore, unfortunately.
Apart from the famous example we’ve given above, there have been many more instances where artists have come up with their own twists on designer belts. However, as many of these belts are either limited-edition or only done a single time, we didn’t want to include them in our list.
Our top 15 list includes belts that are for sale right now, plus we’ve only included each brand a maximum of three times – otherwise the entire list would just consist of Chanel, Hermès and Dolce & Gabbana!
Additionally, we’ve excluded corset belts and belt bags in the list and just honed in on more traditional-style belts. So on that note, let’s explore the most expensive belts you can buy for all you belt lovers.
