The Conway Stewart Fistral brings a stunning new look to our renowned Elegance Series of precious metal writing instruments. Named after 'Fistral Beach' which is located on the north coast of Cornwall, England, our craftsmen drew inspiration for the fluid pattern of the deep guilloche engraving from the waves which make Fistral Beach the UK's leading surf beach and a venue for many international surfing competitions.
Lovingly crafted from English hallmarked solid sterling silver, the Fistral features hand applied enamel layered over the elegant guilloche engraving on the cap and barrel, giving emphasis and depth to the flowing pattern, representing both the power and grace of the Atlantic Ocean. The underlaying engraving shows through, leaving a design that is both refined and elegant, yet also eye catching under any light.
The art of enamel to decorate precious metal has been a much loved European tradition for many centuries.
Conway Stewart prides itself in its working relationship with the best of English craftsmanship. The artist for our precious metal enamelled series is known for his creativity and design in jewellery, plaques and trophies.
