i prefer silver!
Silver = more casual, rocker-ish lk.
Gold = more dressed up, elegant lk.
It depends on the look you're going for. Like oogie said, Silver is a more casual, rocker-ish look, Gold is a more dressed up, elegant look.
I really like the contrast of the Gold with the steel. When going back and forth between the two hardwares, I felt that I could get the rock-n-roll look already with my black rh city. And I needed more of a dressed up look in my collection. That was the deciding factor for me.
