Jack Row’s Jaali and City Luxury Fountain Pens
Jack Row will now be launching his new collections of luxury fountain pens and writing instruments at the Goldsmith’s Fair, scheduled to be held from 24th to 30th September 2012, in London, United Kingdom. These collections of exclusive writing pens have been named ‘Jaali’ and ‘City’, and will be displayed together with other pieces of fine jewellery, cufflinks and art pieces crafted by Jack Row.
Each Jack Row luxury fountain pen is hand made from 18 carat gold and solid sterling silver. They have precious petrol-blue diamonds studded all over them. The geometric patterns of the design come from historic Islamic art, such as that seen on the famous Taj Mahal in India. Jack Row was inspired by these designs, especially the Jaali latticed screens, a main feature of Mughal architecture in India.
Each of the Jaali and City pens crafted by Jack Row also has a solid 18ct gold nib, and all fountain pen designs are also available in ball-pen (roller-ball) versions.
