I love Chanel purses, in fact, most of my collection is Chanel. I have a quilted caviar tote-bag that I use more often than any other bag. I've had it for less than two years. Two of the screws on two rings fell out, so I've actually just scotch-taped ring closed because even eye-glass screws don't fit in the holes. The gold plating (someone told me it's 24K but I'm not sure what karat it is) has completely worn down on some parts of the chain and on the magnetic closure. I guess I expected better for having paid over $1,000 for it! :worried: At least I haven't had any problems with the other bags.
