Lapis lazuli has been used from the beginning of antiquity to create jewels and precious objects.
Its magnificent and ever changing shades of blue have never ceased to capture the imagination of mankind.
The pen’s body is shaped out of a solid block of lapis lazuli by sophisticated machines. In places, the layer of precious stone is quite thin. A true master artisan can sculpt the lapis lazuli without fracturing it.
After the lapis lazuli is shaped, it still retains a rough texture. Florentine artisans manually polish the stone with specialised tools used to polish crystal.
Clip and box
On the silver-gilded cap, notice the handmade engravings of lilies, the symbol of Florence.
The Ponte Vecchio clip was launched in 2003 as an homage to Florence. The bridge that connects two riverbanks is an allegory of the dialogue and connection between different cultures.
The packaging accompanying the Il Magnifico Lapis Lazuli pen is a wooden box, painted a lapis lazuli blue. The lid is decorated with an engraved plaque that mirrors the patterns on the pen’s silver parts. The plaque is gilded using the famous Florentine gold leaf technique.
