To celebrate the legacy of mathematician, astronomer, and astrologer Johannes Kepler, Montblanc has unveiled the limited-edition pen made of 5,294 sapphires and 570 diamonds. The Johannes Kepler High Artistry Stella Nova Limited Edition 1 is a unique creation from the High Artistry Homage to Johannes Kepler series created by German manufacturer of luxury writing instruments, watches, jewellery and leather goods.
The Homage to Johannes Kepler High Artistry Stella Nova Limited Edition 1 is one-of-a-kind writing instrument that boasts a $1,5 million price tag. The sapphires embellishing its cap are set in a pattern that emulates the Milky Way. The pen is crowned by a 6,20 ct DIF Montblanc diamond suspended inside an elaborate three-dimensional white gold structure. Surrounding the brilliant gemstone are three white-gold rings, symbolizing Kepler’s three laws. The white gold fittings and cone are set with bright diamonds using different techniques from pavé setting to bead setting. The forepart of the writing fountain pen is decorated with the Ophiuchus constellation from De Stella Nova and the orbit of Mars from Astronomia Nova featured on the bottom of the cone. As a reminder of Kepler’s lifelong studying for stars, a single diamond is set on both the precious AU750 nib and the compass.
Montblanc has partnered with Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg to create a pen stand worthy of $1,5 million pen. The off-white biscuit porcelain has been manually shaped like the 17th century scrolled collar Kepler wore, on top of which is set an open porcelain scroll showcasing a drawing of the astronomer’s planetary movement. To complement this unique writing instrument, a pair of matching Stella Nova Limited Edition 1 cufflinks has been created. Shaped like his platonic model of the solar system, the cufflinks feature Montblanc diamonds of 1,71 ct and 1,72 ct, both F/ VVS1, at their centre, while the structure of the model is set with a total of 262 round diamonds, giving these rare pieces added brilliance.
