S.T. Dupont, makers of the world’s most expensive lighter, have come out with an equally luxurious lighter inspired by classic Parisian architecture.

Christened the Place Vendome limited edition Ligne 2 Prestige, this lighter is made from rose gold lighter and is embellished with 192 diamonds.

Defined by its majestic proportions and a strong sense of symmetry it’s one of the most emblematic examples of French 17th century architecture.

In 1810 following his victory at Austerlitz, Napoleon enriched the square by erecting the Vendome Column.

Napoleon’s famous quotation is engraved on the lighter’s roller and on the body of the pen: “Impossible n’est pas français” – Nothing is impossible for the French.

The luxe lighter is priced at $47,000 and limited to 35 pieces.
