In my latest set of samples I deliberately chose two pinks, so that I could compare them. I was confident that when I reviewed Hope Pink, I really liked it.

I'm now reviewing Diamine Cerise and I'm not sure which one I like more.
Todays review of Cerise shows that it isn't a purply pink with lots of shading like Hope Pink. Cerise is a lovely 'pure' pink, more saturated than Hope Pink, and it also behaved extremely well in both of my Lamy pens. Interestingly, it took longer to dry than Hope Pink, and it showed through on my 100gsm paper. It's still a bright pink, in no way subtle or boring. It's very bright and cheery. The cherries that I buy are a darker colour than this though. :)


  • This isn't a waterproof ink, and it isn't particularly water resistant. The water was on the grid for about 15 minutes.
  • Bearing in mind the paper I use is thick with a shiny, smooth surface, and I used a Lamy M nib, this ink took 11-12 secs to dry.
  • It flows very well and lubricates the nib well. I saw no skips or hard starts despite leaving the pen uncapped while I did the swab tests.
  • It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles or 30ml plastic refill bottles
  • Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.
  • It's a reasonable price.

I also decided to sample all of my pink inks together in my journal. It's a Seven Seas Writer Tomoe River Journal and the pens I used had either F or M nibs.

A pink ink lover really appreciates the comparison! :)

But one thing is not said; that we shall suffer from cowardice, from cravens or the fear of cravens.

Thank you for the review and comparisons. I do like this color and may need to consider a sample of this to try.
