- Product Details
The Visconti Divina Elegance Oversize rollerball pen's proportions are matched to the "Golden Number" (or Divine section). This applies to any pair of dimensions where the ratio of the shorter dimension to the longer is the same as the ratio of the longer dimension to the sum of the two. The result is an irrational number, 1.618, that has been fascinating mathematicians since Euclid's time, but also appears in nature, and has been used by architects since the ancient Greeks, who have understood that a room with dimensions in this ration feels somehow "right". The Divina Elegance rollerball pen continues this ancient fascination, as the body of the pen is 1.618 times the length of the cap. And it looks right.
The cap and body of these pens are decorated with five glorious spirals of bronze, again referncing the golden number, which match up perfectly between pen and cap, whether the pen in closed, or the cap is posted. The Divina Elegance uses the Visconti Hook-and-Lock system to keep the cap safely on, and it is impossible to attach the cap with the spirals misaligned!
This is not a light pen, but it is so wonderfully balanced that the weight does not become an issue when writing. Some may find that posting the cap (which is more than a third of the total weight) may throw out the balance for them - aligned spirals or not.
The Divina Elegance Rollerball is indeed an elegant writing instrument in Green, with bronze highlights and rose-gold appointments, with a style that proclaims that it was designed and made in Italy. As with all Visconti pens, it features Ponte Vecchio bridge clip.
