From the Premium Collection of S.T. Dupont's pens, the Black Mother-of-Pearl Fountain Pen features a hand crafted 18-carat nib and palladium finishes. A living and mysterious material, the mother of pearl used here is black, like Tahitian pearls. This Olympio pen decorated with twelve inlays of black mother of pearl, shimmers with iridescent reflections.
Since 1973, once held, the S.T.Dupont pen is never forgotten. The creation of a single pen fashioned from metal is like "haute-couture": it entails no less than 150 operations and 200 quality control tests. This attention to detail extends from the cap to the rhodium-plated, 18 carat gold nib. Each nib is hand-crafted, hand-polished and tested by our experts who hold the secret of the perfect pen.
An S.T.Dupont pen is first and foremost a work of goldsmithing excellence, with many of the procedures requiring almost surgical precision, e.g., guilloche, chasing and engraving techniques. Brass sections are shaped into numerous decorative forms whose finesse and brilliance ensure their uniqueness. Precious material work and application of Chinese lacquer are both signature features of S.T.Dupont pens.
