The Diplomat

The Diplomat is the consummate professional writing instrument for your everyday needs. These pens and pencils are still made with the original design from 1822 that established Yard-O-Led's industry-leading position, and they are still crafted with uncompromising quality to stand the test of time.



Yard O Led is one of the world's leading manufacturers of fine pens and pencils, as well as one of the most historic craft workshops in Britain. Our instruments are all made from premium 925 Sterling silver, hand-chased with traditional Victorian designs by a small number of dedicated craftsmen. Some of these masters have been with the company for over fifty years, and each brings their own distinctive style, making no pen or pencil exactly like any other.
