If show-stopping beauty and perfect performance are essential from your writing instruments, then Aurora is the name to choose. Made in Italy and beloved across the globe, Aurora pens are sparkling jewels that outshine all other designer pens. They’re the fanciest of fancy pens and the only way to put your thoughts onto paper.

Aurora has been producing its signature luxury fountain pen for a century now. Combining a rich heritage and artisan skill with forward-thinking design and technology, the brand creates pieces that are a dream for writing enthusiasts. They manufacture their own nibs, and every pen is turned, polished, assembled, and tested by hand. This attention to detail ensures a superior quality result; put an Aurora fountain pen to paper and your notes will be noticed.

This Aurora Optima fountain pen features hand-finished trims and great attention down to the smallest detail. The hand turned barrel is made of a flecked purple acrylic. It features a solid 14kt rose gold nib with a hand turned ebonite feed, a traditional piston refill mechanism with a hidden reservoir, and a clear ink window. The Optima comes in a stylish presentation case.
