Parker Sonnet in Pink Gold

In the last 10 months, we have been very much attracted to vintage watches and pink gold watches was our favor. We noticed a Parker ballpoint that we thought it would be nice to share.

Just last month, we found this Parker Sonnet Slim in pink gold laying isolated at a corner of the display shelf while look for a ball point while looking for a ball point pen with red ink.

The pen barrel is matte finished giving is a perfect tone, not too loud for a gold pen.

The trim is finished with nickel palladium plating.
For those vintage pink gold watch lovers looking for a matching gold pen, the search is over. This is it.

The Parker Sonnet pink gold also comes in fountain pen.
