Writing Millions: 5 most expensive pens in the world

The items we have on our list below are not your usual biro’s used to jot down the to-do list or pencil in casual journal entries. These writing instruments are pure works of art – as precise as a watch, as precious as diamonds – we’re talking about luxury pens worth millions of dollars! Got the money to burn? Then take a look at the most expensive and exclusive luxury pens in the world…
Montblanc High Artistry A Tribute to the Great Wall Limited Edition 
Price: US$1,978,500
With every High Artistry edition, Montblanc augments the boundaries of technical and artistic excellence to come up with a world class writing instrument.
The latest 2021 High Artistry Tribute to the Great Wall of China is a monumental ode to the mastery of the Maison’s craft and the richness of the Chinese culture. Inspired by the Ming dynasty artwork, the 18 carat gold cap and barrel has the vision of a large twisted dragon in a massive landscape, sitting amidst a sea of diamonds, rubies, sapphires and tourmaline. Priced at nearly US$2 million, this is every collector’s dream writing instrument!
Aurora Diamante
Price: US$1,470,000

Two famous Italian fountain pen giants, Visconti from Florence and Aurora from Turin, reign the market in the ultra-luxury pen segment. However, Aurora’s artisanal pens, founded in 1919, are definitely more enticing for collectors. Quite like Montblanc’s 146 and 149, Aurora 88 is the brand’s flagship range – these are stunning pens but not as exclusive or extraordinary as the limited edition, The Diamante. Literally a dream in diamonds, a masterpiece of jewellery craftsmanship, Aurora makes only one copy a year.
Dripping in 30 carats certified De Beers diamonds, with a solid gold nib which can be personalized, the pen is available in two versions: in platinum and white diamonds, and in blackened gold and black diamonds. Priced at a whopping US$1.4 million, this is one of the most precious writing instruments in the world, to see and to behold. 

Heaven Gold Pen
Price: US$1,000,000

With a design inspiration from the Cosmos, this million dollar pen is for ladies only! Designed by Anita Tan, this diamond-studded, gold-plated, rhodium-coated bling delight is one of the most highly coveted ladies’ pen. Sparkling with 61 brilliant cut diamonds, and 43 carats of the 2 billion year-old rare Tsavorite gemstone, this one is for the high-brow literati with a matching capacity to write masterpieces. 

Caran D’Ache 1010 Diamonds Limited Edition Fountain Pen
Price: US$1,000,000

This is supposed to be one of the most spectacular writing tools out there – provided you have the moolah to burn! So put aside your yachting magazine and invest in a million dollar pen. Because why not!  Built in white gold, set with 850 high-grade  sparkling diamonds, this limited edition million dollar pen is certainly a sight to behold. 

Caran D’Ache Gothica Pen
Price: US$406,453

On the fifth spot, we have the Caran d’Ache Gothica pen, at a little less than half a million US dollars. Named after the Russian word for pencil, the Switzerland-based company first unveiled it in 2015 in China. Encrusted in rubies, emeralds, more than 900 diamonds, the design is a tribute to the Gothic elements such as fleurs-de-lis and rosettes.
