The Visconti Divina Black Ballpoint Pen is a pen with a huge story behind it relating to what is known as the golden number or to be precise, the number 1.618, also known as the golden ratio or Divine Proportion. Although most of us won't realise it, this phenomenon affects us all on a daily basis! It is said that Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli both used the theory in several of their paintings which of course went on to become masterpieces. It seems that Visconti were not wrong in applying it to the Divina pen which can also only be described as a masterpiece of sheer beauty.

The soft rotating spiral of pearlescent resin which is highlighted with inserts of sterling silver is as intriguing as the ratio itself and provides the user with a pure feeling of pen karma.
