Montblanc has just announced a New Princesse Grace de Monaco Writing Instrument. This fountain pen features an ivory resin body with platinum plated fittings and a pink topaz stone. It seems to only come with fine or medium nibs, which is a bit disappointing to those who like fancier nibs. However, this pen does not seem like a “creative nib” kind of pen to me, so I think the fine or medium choice is fitting.
This pen is very similar to the previous Princess Grace edition which featured the same stone and styling, but with a deep purple resin body. I feel like the ivory body fits Princess Grace more than the deep purple, although a light baby blue would have also complimented her essence nicely.
I have not written with this pen, but my guess is that you will probably like it if you have and like other Montblanc pens. I tried the Montblanc Ingrid Bergman pen (review here) a few years back, and was disappointed with a dragging nib. Just based on looks alone, this new Princess Grace pen is a winner as it completely compliments my style.
The new Princess Grace de Monaco Fountain Pen retails at $1,035 at Montblanc’s website and stores.
