Architect Collection - Writing Instruments & Cufflinks
 

Award-Winning Design.  Iconic Luxury. Individually Crafted in Great Britain.

'Architect’ is an exclusive collection of architecturally inspired, solid gold, sterling silver, limited edition writing instruments and cufflinks, intended for lovers of art and design. These exclusive Jack Row pieces are for those who desire the ultimate in luxury with a twist of British eccentricity. Studded with precious brilliant-cut gems including diamonds and sapphires, each piece is individually crafted to order in Great Britain.

Debuted at Harrods in November 2011 the collection has since become the designer's most celebrated work. The prototype Architect fountain pen design was awarded a gold medal prize by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, as well as a prestigious Robb Report 'Best of the Best' accolade in 2012.

Inspired, Objets d'Art

The collection draws inspiration from iconic architecture that graces the modern skyline and pays homage to the architects and engineers who created them. Each item futures distinctive polished gold or silver filigree, which twists along each pen’s barrel and the front of each pair of cufflinks. Although drawing inspiration from contemporary buildings, this decorative helical geometry has been used by many cultures for thousands of years. Gemstones are individually set into the ends of each pen and around the central section of the 18ct gold pen options. The rims of the 18ct gold cufflinks also features gemstones, further adding to the presence of each piece. When capped and displayed on its bespoke desk stand, each writing instrument becomes an intricate sculpture or object d'art.

Made, Not Manufactured - British Craftsmanship


Individually made to order in Great Britain using a combination of traditional goldsmithing, gem setting, precision engineering and cutting edge technology. This careful blending of methodologies enables the creation of forms in precious metals which are innovative, yet of the uppermost quality. It takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks of painstaking craftsmanship to create each piece. Visit the craftsmanship page to learn more.

Precious Metal Investment - Precious Gems

Only solid gold, sterling silver and top quality brilliant-cut gemstones are used to create each writing instrument and pair of cufflinks. All sterling silver is also rhodium coated (a substance more expensive that platinum!) to help prevent tarnishing. A full British hallmark is relief engraved onto the barrel of each item by the Birmingham Assay Office (founded in 1773). This striking feature guarantees the purity of precious metals and the  intrinsic value of your investment.

Exclusive - Limited Edition

Each writing instrument is part of a limited edition series, making them highly collectable and luxuriously exclusive. They are also accompanied by a stamped and signed certificate of authenticity. Pieces are limited to either 888 or 88 pieces word-wide, depending upon the variation (writing instruments only). It is no coincidence that the number 8 is the luckiest number in Chinese culture. T
he unique limited edition number is found on the back of the section.

Luxury Presentation - The Perfect Gift

All writing instruments are presented in a hand crafted, solid oak, presentation case with an accompanying oak silver and glass topped display stand, all made in the UK by master cabinet makers. The desk display stand allows the pens to become a centre-piece or objet d’art when not in use.
Cufflinks are packaged in a luxurious wenge presentation box with outer protective sleeve.

Writing Experience

Excellent writing comfort is provided by a choice of  either  18ct gold, iridium tipped, fountain pen nib or top quality ceramic rollerball system. Each is produced for Jack Row by the world's leading nib and writing system manufacturers; Peter Von Bock and Schmidt Technology.

Customisation - Bespoke

Customisation of any item from the collection is available upon request. Some possibilities include the engraving or a name, date or ceremonial occasion or the setting of specific types of gemstones such as emeralds or rubies . Contact jack@jackrow.com to discuss your requirements.
