Diamonds are a Pen’s Best Friend

Yes, you read that title correctly. Diamonds.

No, I don’t mean the pens have a shiny gloss finish or some sort of crystal design. I don’t mean there is a diamond designed painted on. I mean straight from the ground, carbon rock, beautiful brilliant diamonds.

Meisterstuck Diamond Classique Ballpoint Pen;Montblanc released two pens as part of the already exquisite Meisterstuck LeGrand Collection: one ballpoint and one fountain pen. The fountain pen is equipped with a 14 K gold nib rhodium-plated inlay, precious black resin barrel and cap, and platinum plated clip and rings. As if that weren’t enough, the real catch with this one is the .06 ct. diamond in the cap top of the pen. It looks like it’s suspended in midair. I mean, it doesn’t get much cooler, sleeker or original than that. The ballpoint shares the same remarkable and distinguishing diamond as well as all of the other features as the fountain pen.

If there were ever a pen to invest in, this is it. Every part of this pen was thoughtfully designed and executed, and you are sure to make a statement with it. The floating diamond will mesmerize any eye as you write, and act as the perfect complement to your desk.

I wouldn’t wait too long to order mine!

Montblanc Generation Pens

“We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people.”

The New Montblanc Meisterstuck Diamond Collection with Patented Diamond Shape

Montblanc makes history by becoming the first brand in the world to patent a diamond in the shape of their star logo. The process of carving this spectacular diamond took eight years. Montblanc has released a new collection of pens to honor this significant achievement. The new collections features the brand’s unmistakable white star diamond floating in the dome of the four styles of pens in the revamped Meisterstuck Diamond Collection. With its unique 43-facet cut sparkling brilliantly, this diamond is the crowning of a legend, the Meisterstuck Diamond Collection.

Montblanc has produced some of the finest writing instruments since the debut of their first pen in 1909. The Montblanc company stands out in the technical, functional and styling worlds of pen manufacturing, and the new Meisterstuck Diamond collection is no exception. The breakthrough with these pens, of course, is the 43-facet diamond star suspended in the top cap of each instrument. It is truly something an engineering marvel — the diamond appears to be floating, and has an amazingly brilliant, if not radiant sparkle.

The Montblanc Mark Twain Pen

What comes to mind when spying a young child painting a fence or when a Saturday chore involves painting your own? Many of us return to Mississippi, to the fictional town of St. Petersburg, the southern town along the mighty Mississippi River, which Mark Twain painted so vividly in our minds while reading the childhood classic Tom Sawyer.

Image result for mark twainFor any one writer to have such an influence on so many individual readers’ thoughts years later is remarkable. Mark Twain, Samuel Clemens’ pen name, was a hugely successful author “his keen wit and incisive satire earned him praise from critics and peers alike and upon his death in 1910 he was lauded as the greatest American humorist of his age.”

Another amazing thing about this extraordinary author’s work is it is still being compiled today….. due to his use of multiple pen names and his many obscure newspaper articles and speeches.

To commemorate this classic American writer’s life and his contributions to literature, Montblanc is paying tribute to him in 2010 (100 years after his death) by issuing The Mark Twain Limited Edition Pens, the latest addition to Montblanc’s already extensive and very popular Montblanc Limited Edition Writer’s Collection.
