The new luxury writing instrument full of diamonds
Montblanc pays tribute to Marco Polo “Il Milione” with a special pen in Limited Edition, one of the most elaborate writing instruments every created by the Maison. With a dazzling display of gem-setting, the bejeweled design of this piece takes inspiration from the years Marco Polo spent trading precious stones while serving the great Khan, the most powerful person on earth at the time. The rich colors and the shape of the extended cap draw inspiration from the typical Coromandel lacquer folding screens made by the finest artisans in the Orient. When removed, the cap set with a full pavé of dark red rubies and cognac tone diamonds, reveals a barrel that features a diamond-set world map inspired by Marco Polo’s travels. The pen’s clip is shaped like the golden pass given to him by Kublai Khan that guaranteed he was given safe passage throughout the Khan’s expansive kingdom.
