  • Montblanc Heritage Collection, Rouge & Noir

    As a tribute to the design of the serpent clip of the Montblanc 1920s writing instrument, the snake takes centre stage in the Rouge & Noir, a new addition to the Montblanc Heritage Collection, sensually uncoiling its skin of precious metals and fine stones around a truly remarkable piece.

    Limited to just one pen worldwide and priced at €1.2 million (US$1.37 million), The Ultimate Serpent Limited Edition 1 has been created using a special method developed by Montblanc that allows the approximately 6.15ct crowning diamond to enjoy greater visibility and reflect more light.

    The body of the piece and the serpent that entwines it are made from a single, solid piece of Au750 rose gold, as is the nib, with its intricate snake’s head engraving, accentuated by two ruby eyes. Weighing over 130g in total, this one-of-a- kind masterpiece features 99g of gold, the largest amount of this precious metal ever used in the manufacturing of a Montblanc fountain pen.

    The cap and barrel are set in full pavée with approximately 1,950 or 15.34ct of dark blue sapphires, offset by the profusion of 153 individually-cut geometric diamonds decorating the snake. www.montblanc.com
