World's Most Expensive Luxury Pens.

World's Most Expensive Luxury Pens.

The pen still reigns supreme as a writing instrument without peer in the era of digital technology, where the majority of writing is done on laptops, tablets, and phone screens. A handwritten note has a very unique quality that no writing app can match. The most expensive pens in the world are listed below; these finely crafted objects are emblems of real refinement.

  • Caran d’Ache Gothica
  • Montblanc Mystery Masterpiece
  • Caran d’Ache 1010 Diamond Edition
  • Aurora Diamante
  • Montblanc Boheme Royal
  • Tibaldi Fulgor Nocturnus

Caran d’Ache Gothica - $487,000


The Swiss company Caran d'Ache has a firm grasp on the history of writing instruments. Its name, "Caran d'Ache," is derived from the Russian word for pencil, "karandash," which itself is derived from the Turkish word "kara tash" (basically graphite). Fine tools like the Gothica, La Modernista Diamonds, and the Caran d'Ache 1010 are made with the help of this knowledge and skilled craftsmanship. The Gothica, a tribute to gothic architecture, has 72 rubies and 72 emeralds set in patterns of fleur-de-lis and rosettes. It also has nearly 900 diamonds set in the cap and barrel, adding an extra touch of opulence.

Montblanc Mystery Masterpiece - $730,000


There is no need to introduce Montblanc. Its logo of a snow-capped mountain and cigar-shaped pens are instantly recognisable throughout the world. Van Cleef & Arpels and Montblanc joined forces to commemorate Montblanc's 100th birthday. The result of the partnership, which required nearly two years of meticulous work from jewellers, designers, and craftsmen, is the appropriately named Mystery Masterpiece. It was the most expensive fountain pen ever when it was unveiled in 2007, and only 9 were made. The pen has an 18k gold nib, more than 800 diamonds, three variations with rubies, sapphires, and emeralds, and a white gold body.

Caran d’Ache 1010 Diamond Edition - $1,000,000


With a piece that combines two iconic symbols of luxury, pens and watches, the well-known Swiss brand is included on the list once more. The name of this pen comes from the time of 10 minutes after 10, which is regarded as the most aesthetically pleasing position of the clock hands on the dial. The pen has a body covered in intricate gears and is encased in a transparent casing to resemble a "skeleton" watch. In keeping with the horological theme, even the pen nib has a gear design engraved into it, and the pen clip is fashioned to look like a clock hand. The 1010 collection comes in three editions: silver, gold, and diamond.

Aurora Diamante - $1,470,000



As has been the case on this list thus far, the simplest way to make any item more exclusive is to incorporate diamonds into the design. The Aurora Diamante, which is equally a piece of jewellery and a writing instrument, carries on that same trend. This is obvious from the name alone. It is covered in more than 2,000 diamonds, 1,919 of which are on the barrel in honour of the year Aurora was established. The renowned DeBeers Jewellers provided all of the stones, and the nib can be personalised by having the owner's initials or a family coat of arms engraved on it. Because there was only one unit made in this edition, it is a very rare collector's item.

Montblanc Boheme Royal - $1,500,000

Montblanc Boheme Royal

It shouldn't be shocking to see Montblanc appear twice on this list, similar to how Caran d'Ache did. The Boheme Royal, a piece from the Boheme collection, is crafted from 18-karat white gold and set with more than 1,400 diamonds of the highest quality. The stones' slight coloration gives the pen's aesthetic a distinctive quality, but it is not noticeable unless you put them side by side with a colourless diamond. Even the Montblanc logo has been given a stylish makeover; it is set with 19 diamonds and 18 karat white gold. The retractable nib on this fountain pen makes it one of only a handful in existence.

Tibaldi Fulgor Nocturnus - $8,000,000

Tibaldi Fulgor Nocturnus

The Fulgur Nocturnus is a truly unique pen that was created by the renowned Italian pen maker Tibaldi. There are diamonds involved in this entry, 945 black diamonds, as there are in every other entry on this list. These stunning dark gems, which cover the cap and the majority of the barrel, provided the name "Night Glow" for the pen. The Nocturnus is the most expensive pen in the world for other reasons as well, though. The Divine Proportion of Phi, another name for the Golden Ratio, which is used in its design, is also very intriguing. The Golden Ratio is regarded as the most aesthetically pleasing ratio when the ratio between two components of an object is approximately 1.618.
