The newest model, the Varius Ceramic, is a product of advanced technology, a writing instrument that celebrates the marriage of tradition and modernity.The production of ceramic, the first of the fire materials, has evolved across the ages, from simple baking in the earth to ultramodern processes developed in the 20th century. Modern ceramics offering permanence, strength and chemical resistance are used in industry, aeronautics, medicine, and watchmaking. The Varius Ceramic pen is enveloped in an oxide of zirconium that offers all the qualities and innovations of the material which is used by Caran d'Ache for the first time. By combining the gleam of ceramic with the sparkle of rhodium, the new fine writing instrument creates a striking contrast of materials. It also boldly reinvents the hexagonal body shape that is a famous emblem of the brand.Its rhodium finish gives it a precious allure, protection and a permanent sparkle - qualities that can only be achieved with this rare metal so difficult to extract that it is ten times as expensive as gold.
