Sharon Cuneta finally has a Sakura Pink Hermès Birkin in her bag collection.
In an Instagram post on Saturday, January 30, 2021, the 55-year-old star thanked actress Sherilyn Tan for helping her find her dream luxury bag. Her full caption read (published as is): "Thanks to every one of you who went out of your way to help me find my Sakura. I finally got one a couple of months ago so you can rest now! [emoji]
"Love you guys! I really appreciate your efforts even if you didn’t have to make them.[emoji] #gotchasakura (This isn’t my actual bag but a picture of a similar one. Mine’s snugly resting in its box.[emoji])
"@sherilynrtan Thanks to Shey for finding it for me! [emoji]"
Sharon shared her favorites from her luxury bag collection in a YouTube vlog dated October 28, 2020. Among them was a rare Rose Pink Lipstick Birkin and an unused Bubblegum Pink Birkin. However, the actress revealed that she really wanted a bag in the specific shade of Rose Sakura Pink.
In the video, Sharon said of her pink bags, "I love this and I also have a bubblegum pink that I never used because I'm really, really looking for a Sakura pink bag. So I can trade my bubblegum with you or I can buy your Sakura from you, whether it's used or new, I'm looking for a Sakura pink Birkin or Kelly, it doesn't matter as long as it's Sakura."
Pink-colored Birkin and Kelly bags are rare collector's pieces. On average, pre-loved 30-cm to 35-cm Birkin bags are being sold for $22,500 (around P1.08 million) to $25,000 (around P1.2 million).
