1920-30 the Omega FP company. In 1919 the Verga brothers, Eugenio and Alfredo, founded the Columbus pen company in Milan which is still one of the most important pen makers. Successively, in 1930, Mr. Alfredo Verga founded in Milan another pen company which was named "Omega", like the greek letter ().

Omega's nibs were made both of steel and 10Kt/14Kt solid gold. All Omega's pen had an original Omega nib, and most probably the company did not adopted "warranted" nibs.

Ringtop fountain pens were common for only a very short period of time, from the 1900s up until the end of the 1920s and they were marketed (and manufactured) for both men and women. It’s easy to tell the difference between men’s and women’s pens purely from their lengths. Women’s pens were longer (four inches or more); they were worn with a chain or a ribbon around the neck, like a necklace. Men’s ringtop pens are significantly smaller, generally being no longer than about three and a half inches.
