Pineider La Grande Bellezza Fountain Pen Collection
Pineider pens by Dante Delvecchio…
Designed by a creative master, “La Grande Bellezza” pens exploit over thirty years of experience in a balance of form, proportion and color. Creating a pen that is practically perfect, classic, and never excessive. The 2018 collection was inspired from gemstones and their unique colors. Realistically recreating semiprecious stones that in the past have been imitated using celluloid material. Celluloid has been substituted with a new material, resin based, with a high percentage of marble dust. The marble dust was added for three reasons: By adding this material, they have made a harder compound to increase the shining of each color with a high gloss polish. The addition increases the specific weight of the material, making it more consistent. Spreading the color range, recreating a marble design from the primers of the resin. The result is incredible! The black color is so deep that any other pen by comparison looks just dark. Lapis Blue or Malachite Green can be mistaken for the real stones, just like all the colors of the entire collection.
All the fountain pens in this collection feature hand-blended resin and marble bodies, a quill-shaped clip, and Pineider’s “soft touch magnetic lock” cap system. These pens fill via cartridge/converter, and are completed with a smooth, soft 14kt gold nib. The nib is flexible for ease of creating line width variation in your writing. The elegant packaging includes a sample of Pineider luxury stationery cards and envelopes.
