Sometimes it's fun to be me...

I’ve been a fan of Curtis Australia for a while now, and a fan of the owners, Heather and Glenn Curtis since I first met them in California a few years ago. I particularly like the company’s jewelry-inspired pens, probably because jewelry is the root of the brand, with pens being a relatively new offering. I met Glenn and Heather at the Parasol Bar at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas a few weeks ago, and their precious cargo, which they nonchalantly carted about in a nondescript package, was the pen and the necklace from their latest Morning Mist collection. The collection (which also includes bracelets, pendants, earrings and cufflinks) features silvery-gray diamonds known as Silvermist, introduced by Rio Tinto earlier this year. The fountain pen is 18-karat white and yellow gold with over 600 handset diamonds. In order to get the pen finished in time for the JCK show—the reason we were all in Las Vegas—Glenn personally set each stone. The articulated necklace is also made of white and yellow gold and features over 600 diamonds. The first picture shows Glenn and Heather and the pen, priced at $95,000. Though we all know that pens are my first love, it was fun to try on that necklace, which retails for $119,000. I thought it looked quite nice with my dress, which cost a whole lost less.
