This may be much too far out of most people's budget to expect it by Christmas 2012, but it sure is an item worth putting on a wishlist.
This unique Ruby and Diamond fountain pen is currently on offer by M.S. Rau Antiques. It is adorned with 150 carats of invisible set Burma rubies and 15 carats of real diamonds. The pen is hand crafted and its body and nib are made from platinum and 18k white gold, and is priced at more than half a million dollars.
This pretty thing definitely brings a whole new meaning to the phrase beautifully written.
