Founded in 1912 in Italy, the brand is still operating out of the same historic factory and continues to be a favorite of royalty, heads of state and celebrities the world over. The brand is recognized for their panache for limited editions and their creative commemorating of people, places and major events. From their Gold Ancient Mexican Civilizations Collection for $143,000 per pen to the soccer fan favorite Pele Heritage 18K Autographed Rollerball for $75,000, there’s literally a pen for every taste…but not every budget. One of their “crown jewels” is the $290,555 Dragon Bruce Lee 18K Gold & Diamonds Pen Set that includes an inkwell, rollerball and fountain pen.

Well, it depends on how big the deal is!; Montegrappa.com.
