You're right. I thought about your comments and I went to visit my purses with a new attitude thanks to you. Some might think this is silly but I've always felt that it was a mistake to get palladium/silver hardware on my bags, I have always loved gold but being a new collector I was also intimidated to refuse an offer. So I graciously accepted a black 35 and a BF 35 with palladium but in the back of my mind I'd always wished that their hardware was gold.It's a perennial discussion with no right answer. Both are great, with different looks and feeling. The standard answer is "gold is classic, more formal look, PHW more fresh and modern".
Get what you like and what will work for you.
Palladium has more modern feel, my husband says the black birkin 35 with palladium is the Grace Jones of all bags, the baddest ass of them all and the ultimate one to have, today I looked at the palladium hardware on the BF and on the black Birkins and I've decided I absolutely love them with no hesitation.
So get what you like you won't go wrong with either one, they're just different and they have a different vibe.
