The Cross Century II 14k Rose Gold Filled/Rolled Gold fountain pen brings the distinctive warmth of rose gold fill to a classic streamlined Cross design - this is a pen that makes a subtle yet dramatic statement when extracted from a shirt pocket or purse. Black lacquer on the trademark conical end cap and gripping section provides visual contrast, while the slender, modernist shape gives this writing instrument excellent balance in the hand.


The Century II has a production history dating back to the 1940s, and this version in 14k Rose Gold Fill leaves a unique impression. This is a slightly bolder, wider version than the original Classic Century model, yet still remains a lightweight mid-sized pen that veers towards the smaller side. This is an easily transportable writer for those who want to be able to take their fountain pen on the go.

The Cross Century II 14k Rose Gold Filled/Rolled Gold fountain pen can use convenient Cross brand ink cartridges, or can be filled with any bottled fountain pen ink using the included converter. Its subtle incised line pattern, which continues even onto the gripping section, provides texture, while the rose gold precious metal lends a bold finish. 


The matching rose gold Cross clip allows this pen to be easily affixed to a shirt pocket, and also serves as a built-in roll stopper. A "click" can be heard when putting the cap on. This makes an almost airtight seal between the cap and barrel, which helps prevents early dry-out of the nib.
The gold filled/rolled gold process involves bonding a layer gold to the metal surface of the pen - the result is a pen with many times more gold than a gold-plated pen. Gold filled/rolled gold pens also tend to be more durable and have a surface finish and feel indistinguishable from solid gold.


But there is solid gold on this pen as well...the 18k solid gold Cross nib. Solid gold is the precious metal of choice for quality fountain pen nibs.
These 18k nibs are good candidates for customizations such as Cursive Italic or Left Oblique, with the some tipping sizes also appropriate for our special Architect's Point customization.


The Cross Century II 14k Rose Gold Filled/Rolled Gold fountain pen arrives in a luxury hinged presentation box and includes a converter and starter cartridge.
