This time of year turns me to thinking about sparkly things and pens are part of that. One of my favorites is rose gold things. Ana and I were talking about rose gold the other day when the idea of a matching ink came up. What kind of ink is good with rose gold?
Well, as I pulled out the pens in my collection that I consider either rose gold or copper (since rose gold is rose due to the addition of copper), I noticed that they fell into three basic groups. Orange under tones, Brown under tones, Pink undertones.
Orange undertones (left to right): TWSBI Smoke and Rose Gold 580AL, No Name (pronounced noh-nah-meh) pen, Conklin black and rose gold, Waldmann Tuscany Rose Gold, Y-Studio Classic.
For the pens with orange undertones, here are a few ink options:
The Brown under toned pens (left to right): Nemosine Rose Gold, Caran D’ache rose gold 849, Lamy Rose Gold, Platinum Nice Pur, Copper Schön Pocket6.
Inks for pens with Brown under tones:
