Fur coats are considered expensive by most. In fact, a majority of them are never below $1,000 a piece. Rabbit and fox are the cheapest, of course, with certain other furs being mid-range, and a few being in the very high price range.
Russian Sable is easily the most expensive fur in the world. Since it is rare, light weight, and immensely silky, this fur can cost up to $150,000 or more for vintage and rare designs. Small jackets in this fur will be lower priced, but a top quality model can expect to be well over the 150k mark. This fur has been used all through history and in the past amongst wealthy and important men and women.
Sable has been hunted in Russia and other parts of Europe for centuries. It is a highly valued animal for its fur and warmth. In modern times it is still hunted, but most furs are “farmed” in a controlled environment. This does not mean that prices are lower due to the farming aspect. There are still regulations and steps that must be followed to ensure integrity and beauty of the fur and animal.
The price of a Russian Sable fur coat will be based upon the blackness and glossy quality of the top coat. The darker and shinier it is, the higher the price they can be. Producing sable fur is a large export for countries in Europe, and they are then sent to Germany and France primarily for crafting into coats and accessories.
Even getting a coat with sable trim will cost quite a bit. The more fur used to create the coat, the pricier it will be. Sable fur coats are certainly the most expensive, and you would be hard pressed to find one that would be higher priced.
