The Spirit of Ballet
Commissioned by The Royal Opera House to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the founding of The Royal Ballet, the Aspirations range captures the spirit of ballet in light, delicate tones with a hint of fun and the exuberance of youth.
Available in three vitreous enamel colours – Ivory, Mauve or Powder Blue – applied over 18 carat gold, each Aspirations pen incorporates a ballerina icon engraved into the precious metal body of the pen. Translucent enamel is then applied over the engraving using exactly the same techniques as those perfected by Carl Fabergé more than 100 years ago, to create a stunning finish (you can find about this age-old process here).
Onoto nibs – Probably the best on the market
Put ‘pen to paper’ and you’ll be amazed at the smoothness of the Onoto 18ct gold #3 nib. It’s available in broad, fine or medium widths to suit your handwriting style.
Custom nibs also available
And if you prefer to use a special nib – an italic, stub or oblique, for example – you can have our gold nib ground to your exact specification by one of the UK’s leading nib-masters. Just complete your requirements in the shopping cart.
Like all modern Onoto pens, the Royal Ballet Aspirations pen comes with a lifetime guarantee. If there’s ever a problem with your pen, just return it to us and we’ll repair it for you free of charge.*
