Meet the Montblanc Muses Elizabeth Taylor Writing Instruments

Without a doubt, Montblanc Muses Elizabeth Taylor Special Edition writing instruments are the ultimate choice for writing letters and recording special memoirs. A snow-capped adornment sits upon the pen lid of every Montblanc writing instrument, including the rollerball, ballpoint and fountain pen belonging to this special line created in honour of a legendary actress, whose name is associated with unequivocal beauty, finesse and style – Elizabeth Taylor.


Just like the snow-capped summit of Europe’s tallest mountain, Montblanc (of which the manufacturer takes its name from), these luxury writing instruments surpass everything else in their eye line. These are true lifestyle companions. Statement pieces. Works of art with a special meaning inscribed behind their unique design. The rollerball, fountain pen and ballpoint writing instruments belonging to the Montblanc Muses Elizabeth Taylor Special Edition series are clad in a deep and mesmerising violet hue and accented with polished platinum elements to enhance every writing experience from keeping notes in the office, to shaking hands over a deal in the boardroom, to travelling thousands of feet in the air, to a book signing.



A culture of perfection– a modern-day pursuit…


Montblanc’s writing instruments are designed to fit effortlessly into the palm of the hand – perfect for creating works of art, whether that be sketches, written work, or notes in the office. Likewise – each beautiful manufactured design is a work of art in itself. The German manufacturer is renowned for its premium leather goods, its travel accessories, classic cufflinks and impeccable timepieces, yet it has been specialising in writing instruments since the early 1920s.


Adorned with the instantly recognisable floating star emblem, which can be found suspended in a transparent dome at the top of each pen, or etched into the surface of a barrel - this symbol has become intrinsically linked with unfaltering expertise and meticulous craftsmanship. Hours and hours of painstaking attention to detail are carried out in the production of each writing instrument from Montblanc. There are around 100 individual steps to carry out when creating each Montblanc pen – 35 steps alone for the nib itself. It suffices to say, these world-class writing instruments are a modern-day pursuit for this special manufacturer. The maison is behind some of the most significant stories when it comes to royalty or politics. Every design is a feat of engineering, which makes it all the easier to appreciate how the likes of Barack Obama and Elizabeth II have come to own a significant Montblanc masterpiece of their own. The Montblanc Muses Elizabeth Taylor pen is no exception to that rule. The elegant-looking series features a special edition fountain pen, ballpoint pen and rollerball pen that pay tribute to this legendary actress in the form of a striking deep violet and silver aesthetic. Even the smallest details of the pens reflect some of her preferences.



There are hints of 1950s jewellery design seen in this beautiful Montblanc Muses Elizabeth Taylor collection. Some of the special edition writing instruments belonging to this range have, in the past, paid tribute to women who have left their mark on today’s society and culture. Thoughtful design and thorough processes are adhered to with every Montblanc Muses design, from the finer details of the clip to the colour of the materials and even the selection of precious stones that influence each creation. Marilyn Monroe and Marlene Dietrich are just two icons to have had a special Montblanc Muses creation made in honour of their name.


The Montblanc Muses Elizabeth Taylor Special Edition pens


Elizabeth Taylor was a British-American actress who began her acting career as a child in the early 1940s. In her career, she became one of the world’s most popular classical Hollywood stars ever and became most noted for her unique beauty and the volatile, head-strong characters she portrayed in her acting roles. The dark violet marbleised lacquer of each special edition Montblanc pen reflects the actress’ eyes, whilst other details are engraved with geometric shapes that form an eye-catching pattern to accurately portray the actress’ love for unique and stylish jewellery design. To accentuate this all the more, the Montblanc Muses Elizabeth Taylor Fountain Pens are adorned with a ring-shaped clip.


The fountain pen iteration of the Elizabeth Taylor Special Edition writing instrument collection features stunning platinum-coated fittings and a Montblanc emblem set inside a resin cap top. The cone of the pen is engraved with typical geometric shaped patterns seen in the 1950s, whilst a rhodium-coated 14k gold nib adorned with a special number engraving completes this writing instrument perfectly. The Montblanc Muses Elizabeth Taylor Special Edition rollerball and ballpoint pen follow suit with a similar dark violet marbleised lacquer and platinum fittings to exude a truly luxurious finish both on paper and when held in the hand.


Designed for a certain kind of lifestyle, Montblanc makes writing with one of its luxury instruments feel like a special occasion every day. Whether writing a sentimental message in a birthday card or a loving note to a spouse before leaving for work in the morning – these Montblanc Muses Elizabeth Taylor Special Edition pens are the ultimate keepsake with a timeless design that certainly won’t be lost on generations of scientists, authors, businessmen and scholars to come.
