This year again, Pelikan will offer a series of writing instruments complementing the color of the latest Edelstein® Ink of The Year 2019 Star Ruby. This beautiful new burgundy fountain pen color is inspired by the "star ruby" gemstone. This special edition fountain pen resin body is made with a special crystal effect which makes each pen glisten and sparkle in the light. All pens are unique, as the new glittering effect provides a special and brilliant look. It comes with shiny silver trim and features the classic Pelikan beak clip. The highly polished stainless steel nib perfectly complements and adds to the appeal of each fountain pen. It is completed with a piston mechanism for filling from bottled ink.
The Pelikan Edelstein Star Ruby bottled ink is sold separately.
