Is there such thing as "brushed" palladium hardware? This is in regards to handbags. TIA!
Yes there is, I remember seeing it on someone's bag......maybe the other more knowledgeable PF members can help.
I found a picture of one from mightykismet on Ebay. Hope that helps!
yes there is. it's basically a dull finish, not polish.
Palladium (shiny silver)
Brushed Palladium (matte silver, similar to a satin nickel finish)
Ruthenium (darker gunmetal gray)
Guilloche (palladium in a diamond cut pattern)
Diamond (no explanation needed!!)
^^^I didn't know that Greentea. Thanks. That's what my birkin has. Ruthenium (darker gunmetal gray) hardware.
I can't remember if I'm dreaming, but I believe that Hermes also makes/made brushed Gold. I seem to recall seeing it somewhere...
Regarding brushed palladium, be aware that scratches easily show more.
Both my Hermès belts have brushed palladium and you can easily see if there's a scratch so I'm extra careful.
Nice to know! Now I can't decide between palladium and ruthenium!
I think it depends on what color bag you're getting.
Do you girls think the hw on my thalassa birkin is brushed palladium? Or ruthenium?
I think it's palladium.
Definitely looks like brushed palladium! Beautiful!
It looks like palladium but matte. I think I got my answer now. Thanks girls
