World’s most expensive pen goes on sale

The world’s most expensive pen has finally gone on sale… for $1,470,000.

As we reported in February, the Aurora Diamante contains over 30 carats of De Beers diamonds on a solid platinum barrel.

It has a two-tone, rhodium-treated, 18KT solid gold nib and is personalized with a coat of arms, signature or portrait.

British pen expert Mark Fitzgibbon said: “I’ve been in this industry for years and never seen a pen as expensive as this. The dearest I’ve sold before was £1,700.”

Only one pen is available each year from Italian manufacturers Aurora and the lucky buyer can further get it personalized with their coat-of-arms, signature or portrait.
