gold is fricking gold colored.
come on man.
gold is not fashion. its an element. LINK
look at the wiki for gold. the color of the material is gold colored.
someone with priss up their buttocks is trying to tell you that gold is some other color, ask them what they are mixing in.
its way prissy, this notion that gold is some other color.
So... its lesson time:
you are a judge of quality. exercise your own senses.
its not a thing to allow other people to decide for you.
GOLD IS GOLD.
the other question you need to face is that with two substances, you can make patterns. art.
you can intertwine gold and platinum and do something the eye enjoys.
Platinum is expensive. Feel free to blow a few thousand.
