Luxury Gifts: A jeweled, handcrafted writing implement made by Tibaldi is more than just something to mindlessly pick up and jot down a phone number or fill out the weekly grocery list. It is a stately possession that magnifies a holder's level of status, character, and refinement. A Tibaldi is an instrument of writing that has been seen in the distinguished hands of kings, statesmen, dignitaries, scribes, and innumerable individuals of distinction for 90 years. These acclaimed fountain and roller-ball pens are crafted with a precision generally seen only in limited editions or one-off fine-jewelry. The patented inner workings of a Tibaldi are made with the same precious metals deployed by highly regarded Swiss horologists.

The limited-edition Divinas commemorate the Italy-based firm's recently celebrated ninetieth anniversary. All precious metals used in the manufacturing of the Divinas were produced and prepared in Switzerland. The Swiss Federal Custom Office for the Control of Precious Metals in Geneva certified each of the 618 produced. The pyramid-like finished trim stems from 16th century designs. The 18k solid gold nib of the pen has an engraved image of an eagle.

Tibaldi writing instruments have sterling silver or 18k gold finishes. Other fine collector's editions include tributes to soccer's Pele and the Bentley automobile. The latest exclusive release is the Da Vinci Code collection, which was commissioned by Sony Pictures. The Da Vinci Code collection consists of 618 sterling silver fountain pens and 618 sterling silver roller balls. There also are 61 solid 18k gold fountain pens yet only 18 (per firm's website) solid 18k gold fountain pens.

With a Tibaldi in hand, the pen is a mighty powerful instrument of status.
