I decided to purchase a jumbo flap (black caviar, silver hardware) for my mom's b-day. I finally got it today from Saks, but I am a bit disappointed that the caviar doesn't seem to have a lot of sheen to it. It looks different from my medium flap (gold h/w) and I don't know... I went to a different Chanel boutique to compare and they only had one jumbo in stock which was also not shiny. I don't know, is this unique to silver hardware combo? I am also not sure about the silver h/w. I thought it would look chic on my mom (she'll turn 57) because I saw some older women with gold h/w and it gave off a bit of aged look (no offense to anyone!). Uggh, my head is spinning. If I exchange it for gold hardware, that means I have to pay $300 extra because I ordered mine before the price increase. I don't know, what do you guys think? TIA.
