Product Description

Pineider La Grande Bellezza Gemstones Fountain Pen
From the heart of Florence, Italy, Pineider brings you the new La Grande Bellezza Gemstone series, the latest design by creative pen-making master Dante del Vecchio. Drawing from over 30 years of experience, Dante excels in balancing form, proportion and color to create exceptional designs like La Grande Bellezza, a practically perfect pen that is classic yet never excessive. Inspired by semi-precious stones and their unique and distinctive colors, the 2018 Gemstone collection is crafted in a new material that is resin-based and mixed with a high percentage of marble dust for incredible results. The marble/resin mix makes the material harder, which increases the shine and high-gloss polish of each color and provides a more consistent weight for effortless writing. The colors are so deep and vibrant, one might mistake them for the real stones in Malachite Green, Lapis Blue, Tiger Eye, Rhodolite Red or Onyx Black.  

The gorgeous La Grande Bellezza Gemstone fountain pen features Del Vecchio's latest nib design, the innovative Hyperflex. Combining Dante's artistic mastery with the latest in technology, the 14K gold nib is quill-cut for exceptional flexibility. The Hyperflex nib glides across the paper exquisitely, eliminating the issue of skipping when using a fine nib. Another Dante innovation: the cap and barrel utilize a twist action with dual pole magnets; the snap-on cap ensures no ink will spill into your pocket or purse. La Grande Bellezza Gemstone is also offered as a capped rollerball or twist ballpoint pen. Cartridge/converter fill.

A “Gem” of a pen
Overall
What is your opinion of the quality of this item?
Having received this pen on Sept. 25, I have been using it exclusively since this time. It truly is a “gem,” not only in appearance but in writing performance. The nib is very smooth with excellent ink flow, and I really enjoy writing with this pen. I refill my own cartridges, so I have been using that. While the nib does flex with minimal pressure, I do not see a great deal of line variation, but perhaps with a finer nib, that would be more noticeable. I am more into smoothness and ink flow than flex. Also, the pen’s size and weight are just right for me, so considering everything, I can recommend this pen without hesitation. I believe it is a great value for the price.

Love It?
What is your opinion of the quality of this item?
I'm a lefty and finding that perfect everyday pen within my budget has been a quest. With La Grande Bellezza, I may have found my grail. The size and unposted weight feels easy on my female hand, the resin marble blend smooth and warm. I like not having to twist a cap on and off constantly. The nib, oh the nib is amazing--responsive, springy, ready to write. Lefties push their pens rather than pull, often causing skips and stutters. This nib doesn't seem to care, it just goes. I initially got a medium nib, my go-to lefty-facilitating size, then exchanged for an extra-fine as medium proved too bold and wet. With XF, I get crisp letters with a smooth and consistent ink flow. I could doodle for hours. Bonus: Because I can write so lightly with this pen, my arthritis complains less.

Amazing.
What is your opinion of the quality of this item?
I bought the Pineider Gemstones at Fahrney's store last week. The pen (perhaps due to the marble in the resin) has enough heft to give it substance, but not so much as to make it really heavy. As to the writing experience, if this pen wrote any better and more smoothly, it wouldn't even need me to hold it.
