Graf von Faber-Castell Unveils Classic Gold Pens and Pencils

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

NEW YORK, NY – Anello Gold, the new Graf von Faber-Castell Classic
Shimmering brushed barrel with gleaming gold-plated rings

The aristocratic pens and pencils in the Anello range very quickly developed into collectors’ items. And so these elegant writing implements, made of matt black ebony combined with fine platinum-plated rings, have been joined by some exclusive companions.

The series now appears in gold: temptation at first sight! The fountain pen, roller-ball pen, propelling pencil and twist-action ball pen each have a barrel made of gold-plated segments with a brushed matt finish, separated by gleaming gold-plated rings. These give them their purist looks and also the name: anello is Italian for ring.

Optically it is a refined contrast that also proves a perfect combination to the touch. The transitions between the matt surfaces and the slender rings are precisely matched, so that the pen sits comfortably balanced in the hand.

The fountain pen is fitted with an 18-carat bicolour gold nib and equipped with a practical cartridge/converter system. Each nib has been individually run in by hand; there is a choice of six different widths. The new model is also available as a ball-point pen, roller-ball with liquid ink, and propelling pencil with a replaceable eraser under the end cap. All the metal fittings are plated in gleaming gold. Among the practical details are a spring-loaded clip.

As ever, a quality fountain pen with a gold nib conveys a unique feeling. Thanks to its smooth-running precision point, however, the roller-ball pen can also be recommended as a comfortable and convenient alternative for everyday use. The ball-point pen with its jumbo refill is very useful for spontaneous notes, while the propelling pencil will soon become a constant companion. Naturally all four exclusive writing implements are as functional and reliable as every product in the Graf von Faber-Castell series.

The Anello Gold pens and pencils make a delightful present for men and women alike, and will grace any desk or act as luxurious accessories for business trips. Ideal for signing a decisive contract or drafting a letter to a loved one, they will become treasured possessions that are extremely useful as well as aesthetically pleasing.
