Take the pen. The right pen, as we know, is more than a pen; it is a fashion statement.

Step into King Fook's stylish Masterpiece stores at Pacific Place or the Central Building and chances are you'll be spend ing some time getting a feel of the pens on offer from the likes of France's Michel Perchin and Italy's Academia.

These luxury pens have been designed to add a touch of class to the coat or shirt pocket.

Try the fountain pen from Michel Perchin and you'll feel the weight of history - the heritage of a master jeweller who designed for Russian Royalty.

As head workmaster for the renowned house of Faberge, Perchin created, among other things, the Imperial Faberge Eggs presented by the Czar to members of the royal family.

The Monogram pen has been inspired by nothing less than the Faberge Eggs created by Perchin for the Russian monarch in 1895. Crafted in Europe from .925 sterling silver, each individual piece is en graved for more than 20 hours on multiple levels.

Then 50 layers of translucent enamel are applied to the guilloche, and the high relief filigree is plated with platinum.

Fitted with the Michel Perchin 18K gold nib and ebonite feeder, the Monogram pen is limited to a production of only 1,000 pieces in violet blue, and 1,000 pieces in Black.
