BRIT DESIGNER PUTS INK-REDIBLE PEN ON MARKET FOR 27K
A British jewellery designer with a passion for Londons iconic Gherkin has created a pen with an INK-REDIBLE price tag of £27,500. Designed in homage to one of the capitals most famous modern buildings, the diamond and gold writing instrument costs the same as a one-bedroom flat in Yorkshire. But the eye-watering price tag has failed to deter well-heeled shoppers at Harrods where they are currently being snapped up. Birmingham designer Jack Row crafted the pen, which is encrusted with 76 diamonds and is made with 18 carat white gold. Jack, 26, said the pen was good value.He said: Its an awful lot of money to spend on a pen but, with the amount of work and the quality of the materials, consumers are actually getting good value for money. Believe it or not, there are people prepared to pay a lot of money for luxury items - the irony is I cant afford one of these pens myself. Jack works out of Birminghams famous Jewellery Quarter having graduated from Birmingham City Universitys prestigious School of Jewellery three years ago.
