In celebration of the wedding of Prince Albert II of Monaco to Charlene Wittstock, Montblanc has created a one-of-a-kind writing instrument, a Création Privée from the Artisan Atelier Hamburg
This summer, the Principality of Monaco hosted to a fairytale wedding between a Prince and his beautiful fiancée, the future Princess Consort of Monaco. Sealing a union of love, this once in a lifetime occasion requires an instrument of unique beauty and rarity. In celebration of the wedding of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco to Charlene Wittstock, Montblanc has created a one-of-a-kind writing instrument, a Création Privée from the Artisan Atelier Hamburg, which will be used by the couple on their wedding day as they make a lifelong commitment to each other.
True to its rich heritage, the luxury Maison Montblanc prides itself on being associated with crowning emotional moments in the life of remarkable personalities around the world. The intricate writing instrument crafted for this special occasion is inspired by the architectural elements of the Palais Princier and the Principality Flag, embellished with precious stones and the monogram of the Princely Couple.
This gem of European craftsmanship embodies an unforgettable moment, full of romance and emotion. The unique fountain pen is made of solid white gold. The cap and barrel of this masterpiece is engraved with a rhomb-shaped pattern and is set with 161 rubies and 128 diamonds, reflecting this royal occasion and the colours of the Monegasque State. The largest stone to adorn the writing instrument is a ruby in rhomb cut set on the clip. The 18K gold nib is engraved with a dove, rings and crown – all meaningful symbols of this state union. As with all its creations, the Montblanc emblem adorns the top of the cap, for this occasion it is in mother-of-pearl reflecting the rarity of this piece and representing the future prosperity of the Princely Couple.
Following the wedding day, this unique writing instrument will endure in all its splendour as a memento of a special occasion in European history, and a personal treasure for the newlyweds.
