    The latest edition of a pen series that previously has celebrated the pop-culture figures Muhammad Ali, Frank Sinatra, and Bruce Lee is the Montegrappa Icons Elvis Presley (www.montegrappa.com). The pen is available in four versions, each of which celebrates a different era of the King’s career. The green pen shown here references his time in the U.S. Army. The other versions are aqua, black, and white, and each is accented with silver or gold. The clip of the white pen is set with red Swarovski crystals or rubies, which are intended to evoke the gemstones that decorated the jumpsuits Elvis wore onstage in his final years. Prices for the pens range from $1,975 to $41,500.
