Last year's National Stationery Show feature was the black pencil with a sparkling Swarovski crystal on the end, beautifully-jeweled pencils that were everywhere. This year there were fewer sparklers around, but one that did show up was this plain black pen with a Swarovski crystal on the plunger.
Looking somewhat like Parker Jotter ballpoints, these were displayed at several booths and have a suggested retail price of $4.95. The two new colors that are big favorites for the summer are teal and hot pink, and they are definitely beautiful. Nothing amazing about the pen, but the presentation is impressive.
