  • Jaali gold pen
<< Back to Robb Report, December 2012

    The sophomore release by up-and-coming British goldsmith Jack Row, the Jaali Collection (www.jackrow.com) features writing instruments and cuff links styled after the latticed-stone window coverings of Moghul-dynasty palaces in India. Row debuted as a pen maker last year with the Architect Collection, a series of writing instruments whose design evokes a modern skyscraper. The Jaali Collection includes two pen designs: One, priced at $12,700, features a silver barrel wrapped in silver latticework; the $47,150 version shown here is adorned with blue diamonds and 18-karat-gold latticework. The collection’s three cuff-link designs, two in silver and one in gold, range in price from $1,300 to $8,000.
