The Limited Edition Mystery Masterpiece, a joint creation of Van Cleef & Arpels and Mont blanc, is regarded as the most expensive writing pen ever created. It comes with the amazing price tag of $730,000! This remarkable pen is a masterpiece of the jeweler’s art in true sense.
Each pen has more than 20 carats of gemstones and 840 diamonds set in a Van Cleef & Arpels patented “Mystery Setting” that covers the stone settings. A groove is made on the culet, the bottom facet of the stone, which is then slid onto the threads of the web like design so that the stones can be held in position side by side without any apparent support.
There are three different types, set with sapphires, either rubies or emeralds, and accentuated by diamonds. To design and produce this magnificent and limited edition work of art it took almost one and half year by skilled artisans.
