We’re pleased to be able to give you a first look at the exclusive Montblanc writing instrument, a Création Privée from the Artisan Atelier Hamburg, created for H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock to seal their union on their wedding day today.
Here’s the official description of what appears to be one of the most luxurious pens on planet earth:
“The intricate writing instrument crafted for this special occasion is inspired by the architectural elements of the Palais Princier and the Principality Flag, embellished with precious stones and the monogram of the Princely Couple. This gem of European craftsmanship embodies an unforgettable moment, full of romance and emotion. The unique fountain pen is made of solid white gold. The cap and barrel of this masterpiece is engraved with a rhomb-shaped pattern and is set with 161 rubies and 128 diamonds, reflecting this royal occasion and the colours of the Monegasque State. The largest stone to adorn the writing instrument is a ruby in rhomb cut set on the clip. The 18K gold nib is engraved with a dove, rings and crown – all meaningful symbols of this state union. As with all its creations, the Montblanc emblem adorns the top of the cap, for this occasion it is in mother-of-pearl reflecting the rarity of this piece and representing the future prosperity of the Princely Couple.”
Nothing says signing your life on the dotted line like a Montblanc made with solid gold, rubies and diamonds. Lucky Royals! They get all the fun!
