If you are looking to collect these adorable charms, love the way they look on your bag, then yeah they are worth the price. 

If you base it solely on what it is, an accessory for your handbags. In my opinion, spending over a couple of hundred dollars on an accessory for your handbag seems a bit steep. A Hermes Twilly would be a better option because this actually can protect the handles of the bag.
