EXTRAVAGANZI, November 30, 2012-- We have already seen some of the most luxurious writing instruments designed by Montblanc, Montegrappa or recently announced Letter Writing Collection by Louis Vuitton, but compared to this Ruby and Diamond Fountain Pen, all these somehow lose charm (and their prices of several thousands seem kinda funny). Offered by M.S. Rau Antiques for $595,000, this unique, hand-crafted fountain pen is adorned with white diamonds totaling 15 carats and invisibly set Burma rubies weighing over 150 carats, while its nip and body are crafted of platinum and 18K gold.
We can only admire to this one-of-a-kind masterpiece, while truly connoisseur of luxury writing instruments and fine jewelry could say, whether it is worth $595,000, as M.S. Rau Antiques asks.
