What is the difference between nib pens and fountain pens? What pen do you prefer when using it as a drawing not a calligraphy

"Nib" refers to just the tip of a pen. The type of nibs used here are sometimes called "quill" nibs because you have to dip them in ink (much like an old feather quill). Fountain pens have an ink reservoir built in (similar to modern ballpoints and felt tips) so you don't have to dip them. You can use either for drawing or calligraphy, it's down to personal preference mostly.

Very cool! This is a lovely elegant earring. I see it as far more broadly wearable than just as a steampunk accessory!
