Jack Row Launches Luxury British Fountain Pens with Harrods, La Couronne du Comte and Pianki
Award winning young British designer Jack Row has launched his début ‘Architect’ Collection of luxurious solid gold and silver fountain pens and cufflinks accented with diamonds and sapphires.
In addition, Jack Row has also secured global availability with Pianki, the USA world class internet luxury retailer, and with luxury writing instruments boutique La Couronne du Comte of the Netherlands.
Design inspiration is drawn from iconic British architecture, most notably one of London’s most famous landmarks, the ‘Gherkin’. The iconic profile and geometric spirals are reflected in the pens elaborate silver and gold filigree.
The design prototype, originally developed whilst studying at Birmingham’s famous School of Jewellery, won Jack Row a gold medal prize, awarded by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths.
Regarding his design philosophy, Jack said: “I wanted to create a collection of functional items that could be valued as much as objets d’art as fine jewellery or writing instruments. I hope they will appeal to discerning, design conscious individuals and collectors who wish to invest in exclusive British design and craftsmanship.”
Harrods interest in supporting the twenty-five-
“Jack’s fabulous collection is luxurious, eccentric and quintessentially British, aligning perfectly with the unforgettable Harrods experience.”
The materials utilized in the hand crafting of Jack’s pieces also undoubtedly makes them a sound financial investment. During times of recession, investment in traditional commodities such as gold and diamonds sharply increases.
The Jack Row ‘Architect’
Each piece is individually made to order by Jack Row in his studio based in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter. The young designer uses a combination of traditional goldsmithing skills and cutting edge technology to create his intricate works of art. Every design also carries a British hallmark, struck by the Birmingham Assay office, guaranteeing the purity of the precious metals.
And the question that you are longing to ask - how much does one of these pens or pair of cufflinks cost? The most affordable cufflinks are priced at around £3,500 and the top of the range 18ct gold and diamond pen prices at around £27,500.
