Okily dokily I just got a new venetia (pics will be posted shortly once my camera decides to behave lol) and it is from the tumbled calf line and has what is known as burnished hardware... So what I'm wanting to know is, what is the difference between the burnished hardware on my venetia and the gold antiqued hardware that's on my taupe stam????? All I can notice is that the burnished hardware is slightly more matte in appearance. Also, I'm guessing the nickel hardware is the shiny silver harware many MJ bags have? And the gold shiny hardware, is that brass hardware??? Thanks everyone for helping a dummie out!
