The Aurora Diamante is world’s most expensive pen at $1.3 million

I do appreciate certain ‘bling-bling’ objects, but sometimes it just gets too much to handle. Take, for instance, this tiny pen that is all set to become the world’s most expensive one thanks to its ‘bling-bling’ factor. Known as The Aurora Diamante, it is covered with over 30 carats of De Beers diamonds on a solid platinum barrel. It has a two-tone, rhodium-treated, 18KT solid gold nib and is personalized with a coat of arms, signature, or portrait. A jewel more than a pen, it is definitely classy. So exclusive is this pen that only one will be produced per year. Aurora Pens claim it is the only over 30-carat pen globally, making it one of the most expensive ones ever. Priced at over €1 million ($1.3 million), this pen is definitely a great way to laugh in the face of recession.
