Montblanc launches 'diamond' pens
Dubai, March 23, 2008
Montblac has launched its limited edition “Bohème Papillon” comprising six unique diamond-studded fountain pens, showcasing a combination of top writing culture and first-class jewellery craftsmanship.
Inspired by the charming beauty of graceful butterflies, “Bohème Papillon” models have been created for admirers and collectors who appreciate the exceptional, said a company official.
'Each writing jewel is an artistically-skeletonised unique product in solid white, yellow or rosé gold, studded with about 1,400 glittering diamonds and sapphires, which are spread over three levels on the body and the internal spring mechanism,' he explained.
Delicate butterflies and filigree plant tendrils scintillatingly decorate body and cap, while the patented, star-shaped Montblanc Diamond shines at the top of the cap.
According to him, the Bohème Papillon is a homage to the most amazing creature in nature - butterfly, which is a muse of poets, artists and jewellers.
'A secretive aura surrounds delicate butterflies, which have inspired the thoughts of writers and poets for hundreds of years with their wonderful metamorphosis, exuberance and natural charm,' he added.
The pen is decorated with extreme precision with glittering rows of diamonds and sapphires thus turning it into a writing jewel.
'Some 1,400 stones on body and cap form fine plant tendrils and delicate butterflies. Artistic finesse and the most noble materials come together in six glamorous variants of the 'Bohème Papillon' with its elegant, retractable 18-carat gold nib.
On the three writing instruments in solid white, yellow and rosé gold which are principally studded with diamonds, the 1,402 diamonds in top Wesselton quality totalling 7.21 carats and the 37 sapphires of 0.21 carats on various levels of the body and internal spring mechanism create a brilliant play of lights.
With the three variants where colour is more important, 840 flawless diamonds totalling 4.35 carats and 591 sapphires of 3.87 carats turn the fountain pen in white, yellow and rose gold into a magnificent example of the most demanding jewellery craftsmanship.
