Painstakingly hand crafted in England from solid sterling silver, each ‘Mirage’ writing instrument is lavishly entwined with approximately twenty meters (sixty-five feet) of hand-twisted sterling wire. This traditional goldsmithing technique creates an entirely unique pattern (individual to each piece), evoking the infinitely variable patterns formed in desert sands.
Limited to 250 pieces worldwide, writing instruments and cufflinks are available in a range of finishes to suit all tastes including classic silver, yellow gold, rose gold, or black-antique. Hand finished and polished, each pen also features a stylish sprung clip which can have the added luxury of a sparkling 0.5 carat marquise-cut gemstone, such as tanzanite, emerald or pink sapphire.
Practicing your penmanship becomes a pleasure as each writing instrument is flawlessly balanced and available with a choice of flexible titanium nib, solid 18ct gold nib or ceramic roller ball.
Commenting on the idea behind his latest creation Jack explained, “My aim was to create a luxurious collection of pens and cufflinks which are carefully hand-crafted and individually unique, yet priced at a specific point in order to make my work accessible to a wider range of clients and collectors.”
Penfriend, who have outlets in both the prestigious Burlington Arcade and also on Fleet Street, have chosen to launch Jack’s latest Collection. Amaya Cerdeirina, owner of Penfriend, has high praise for Jack’s work “We are always on the look out for new and desirable products which we can offer to our discerning clients. Jack Row is an exciting British brand which we are pleased to stock alongside our traditional offerings. Burlington Arcade has long been associated with fine jewellery and it is appropriate that Jack’s new jewelled pens are presented here.”
The Mirage Collection writing instruments retail between £995 and £1,595, with complementing cufflinks retailing at £199.
