Caran D'Ache 1010 Diamonds Pen

Oscillating weight balances the pen beautifully while you write with it

The Magna Carta, the Declaration of Independence, Peter Andre’s recording contract – all documents of immense importance. And yet they were all signed with pens that didn’t really match the occasion. Probably. So next time you write something important (list of football clubs to buy, Ferrari dealership’s number), make sure you do it with the Caran D’Ache 1010 Diamonds.

Billed as the world’s most expensive pen, this jaw-droppingly OTT writing instrument will set you back a cool €1,000,000 – but what’s a whopping great pile of money amongst pens? Pull this baby out on your yacht and colleagues won’t know whether to gawp in awe or grab it and scarper.

Conceived as a tribute to the precision timepiece, one of Switzerland’s finest exports, the limited edition Caran D’Ache is crafted in white gold with more than 850 exceptionally pure diamonds, in three styles of cut, totalling approximately 24.61 carats. Even the delicately engraved nib is hand made in rhodium plated 18-carat gold, while the cap and exterior cage are inspired by various wristwatch parts.

Caran D'Ache 1010 Diamonds Pen

872 diamonds totalling 24.61 carats! This pen is for writing big money cheques.

Caran D'Ache 1010 Diamonds Pen

All the diamonds are set by hand

By uniting the expertise of leading jewellers, goldsmiths and master craftsmen of Caran d’Ache, the Geneva Maison de Haute Ecriture (of course we’ve heard of them), this ludicrously luxe pen is destined to increase in value and become a much sought after item – so don’t go lending it to the bloke next to you or you might not get it back. Then again if you can afford this you probably don’t sit next to anyone, do you?

Needless to say, the only downside here is the price. But if you’re into your bling and you know how to write with a fountain pen (we haven’t an inkling – boom boom) this is most definitely the pen for you. Every Premiership club, oligarch, world leader and Liberace fan should have one. Write on!

Customer Reviews

Dear Ken from North Wales. I'm fairly certain Callum from Knighstbridge was joking about owning one of these. And even if he isn't, its his money to do with what he wants. Is he at fault for having the money to cast away over half a million on a pen? No Go bug the people who make billions a year on interest. They're the ones that can really help the world. Also this pen is pretty awesome. Don't like how it doesn't take long cartridges though, they're all my pet Giant Squid produces.
Grief - 20th December 2012
Only £3 for a refill? Something tells me the ink has not been hand milked from the sacks of deep sea giant squid. Hardly the consistency of decadence I'd expect from such an extravagant piece. A deal breaker for me, I'm afraid.
Jack - 1st December 2012
Firebox says: Damn! We tried the squid we really did, we lost too many firebox staff that day I can tell you.
Dear Callum from Knightsbridge, In view of the current world's monetary crisis and the level of human suffering on this planet, I would urge you to rethink your priorities. The money that you paid for this pen could have improved the plight of thousands of human beings. If you can afford this level of extravagance, then perhaps in future you may consider putting your funds to more humane uses.
Ken - 21st November 2012
Just what I need for the shopping list! lol.... . No but seriously why?
Shellie - 13th August 2012
Firebox says: Because we can! And its Awesome! For us they are reasons enough!
I own one of these and they not only look amazing, but write very well too. I understand not many people can afford it but if you can, get one. They truly are amazing. Quick question, do you have a time machine to go back 6 months to tell me about your website, because I paid £90000 more than what you charge when I got mine.
Callum - 9th June 2012
Firebox says: We are working on that time machine Callum. Unfortunately we will probably use it so we can go back in time and relive those crazy days.
I think I will stick to my Bic (other pens are avaiable).
