Baselworld 2014 saw the launch of CARAN D’ACHE Limited Edition Crystal, an encounter between CARAN D’ACHE’s creativity and French luxury brand Lalique. The famed Coutard design which René Lalique imagined in 1935 was the starting point of the luxury pen crafted from white gold, black ceramic or white ceramic.Caran d’Ache has reproduced this iconic spray of water to bring forth the magic of exceptional objects.
The two luxury Manufacture offers three fine writing instruments variations, all produced in the Caran d’Ache workshops in Geneva. Each objet d’art is accompanied by an inkwell in satin crystal, especially created by Lalique. The renowned glassmaker’s signature completes this opus with a crystal cabochon that crowns each pen.
The limited edition of writing instruments resplendent in Lalique crystal comes in three variations:
CRYSTAL & DIAMONDS: This limited edition of 18 fountain pens brings together noble and precious materials in an alliance of light and shade. The droplets spread over the instrument in a cascade of some 340 diamonds of VS quality (almost 3 carats).
