A picture is worth a thousand words, but a single word written with these exclusive pens will really cost you. Montblanc’s 18-karat white gold fountain pen is studded with eight carats worth of diamonds and rubies as a tribute to Prince Rainier III of Monaco, who died in 2005. Only 81 pieces are available—the age reached by the sovereign. The pen, which retails for a whopping $293,000, is available at Montblanc boutiques worldwide.
For a mere $22,000, Italian luxury brand Montegrappa has launched a limited edition Portrait Pen, which allows customers to choose any image they wish to be carved onto the shaft with a traditional diamond engraving manual technique requiring two months of detailed work by a craftsman. Available in white or rose gold, the pens are sold at Bergdorf Goodman.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
