Montblanc: Weaving A Web Of Fascinating Beauty
The fascinating beauty, diligence and wisdom of a spider spinning a web elicits curiosity and appreciation; it is a work of magic often compared to the art of weaving words in literature. As the two concepts merge in Montblanc’s High Artistry Heritage Metamorphosis Limited Edition writing instruments, the unbound creativity, high precision and technical skill astounds and inspires all. For the rst time, precious spider jewellery can be metamorphosed from fountain pens, crafted using advanced stone cutting techniques and intricate hand engravings in gold.
High Artistry Heritage Spider Metamorphosis Limited Edition 1
A three-dimensional spider web and ornamental spider are created using nearly 13 carats of diamonds on a white gold fountain pen. The spider’s body consists of a pear-cut diamond (0,62 ct D/F ), and an additional 16 diamonds for its legs. Secured with a unique triple closure mechanism, the ornamental spider resting on the pavé of diamonds can be removed and worn as a bracelet or brooch, using jewellery accessories included in the set. Another diamond spider adorns the pen cap’s top, with two brilliant cut diamonds as its eyes, while the Au750 solid gold nib is engraved with a special representation of the spider and embellished with more diamonds.
As well as white gold, the High Artistry Heritage Spider Metamorphosis Limited Edition 1 is available in champagne gold and red gold. A removable fluorescent spider made from 1,07 carats of oval cut Myanmar ruby characterises the champagne gold masterpiece.
Depicting a twilight scene, the red gold edition features a solid red gold fountain pen with the cap barrel embellished with sapphires grading from light blue to dark blue. A cabochon cut Burmese star sapphire on the cap top reveals a shimmering star when under direct light, and the jewel spider transforms into a brooch or tiepin.
Each of the High Artistry Heritage Spider Metamorphosis Limited Editions 5, 10 and 88 are characterised by unique appearances and brilliantly cut precious gems.
To complete the collection, Montblanc’s High Artistry Spider Metamorphosis Notebook features a soft leather cover with crawling spiders, crafted in Florence using fine vegetable leather tanned with natural oils and tannins.
