While I use fountain pens exclusively for note-taking, signing documents, and making lists and checking them twice, there are situations when only a ball-point will do – filling up carbon-copy bank forms, doodling on napkins, and poking things to see if they’re naughty or nice.
But of course it can’t just be any old BP. It’s got to be special, blingy, and blindingly handsome. Like this one.
It’s a Swarovski BP in White Pearl.
The lower part of the barrel is metal painted a pearlescent white, while the upper part is clear plastic filled with Swarovski crystals. They are fixed; they do not move within the barrel.
The brand name is engraved on the clip. Seen up close, the crystals are shaped like faceted diamonds.
The fill system inside is unusual. I have no idea how I will replace the ink refill later on.
The combination of white and crystal is elegant and timeless; this is a pen to treasure and use often.
