Now, Montblanc pays tribute to this Hollywood diva with a pen that captures all her glamor.
Limited to just 46 handcrafted pieces as a nod to the 1946 release of Gilda – the movie that made Hayworth into an international movie icon as a femme fatale – the limited edition fountain pen is designed after the actress’ iconic role the ultimate temptress.

The barrel and cap also feature wavy guilloche crafted from 18 karat gold, while its orange citrine on the cap evokes memories of her signature bright red hair.

The top of cap also boasts mother-of-pearl Montblanc emblem. The handcrafted gold nib features a heart-shaped hole in honor of the goddess of love.
As expected Montblanc Rita Hayworth is limited to only 46 pieces produced, but no word on price or release date.
