Best Of The Best 2006: Rising To The Occasion

Ten years after Montegrappa debuted its coveted Dragon pen, the company has introduced its Montegrappa Eternal Bird limited-edition fountain pen, for which it employed the same die-casting technique to create an 18-karat yellow gold overlay depicting a phoenix. The company will craft only 10 pieces of the jeweled variation of the pen, which is set with 244 diamonds (totaling 3.2 carats) and is priced at $30,850. The Eternal Bird comes in a polished wood case, but for an additional $14,500, your pen can nest in a matching 18-karat gold and rock crystal inkwell, which, like the pen, is accented with two rubies.
