|Delta introduced a bold new look for luxury writing instruments in 1998. It was named, "Dolcevita" for the Italian "sweet life" that everyone dreams about. They hand-made special Terracotta Orange and Black resins and accented the instruments with hand-cast sterling silver. The result was stunning to look at and raised the bar for luxury writing instruments forever! The new Delta Dolcevita Desk Set provides a tremendous writing experience for writers who are serious about the quality of their fine writing instruments. This Delta ballpoint pen combines a new streamlined shape with classic design cues from an ancient Pompein motif. The pen, with a hand-made, hand-turned custom acrylic resin body, is exceptionally comfortable to hold. All of this ballpoint pen's trim pieces are platinum, adding to the appearance and writing quality of this Delta pen. A pen of high quality needs to be perfectly complimented with a superb desk stand to make a complete set that will incur jealousy. The desk stand is hand-made from a solid bar of acrylic Italian resin and trimmed hand-cast sterling silver. The Delta pen company has created a pen set that will be flying off the shelves.
