I'm looking at the marcasite Kristin online, and it looks very similar to my Julia gunmetal hobo that I'm using today.

For anyone that has seen the marcasite in person - is it the the same color as gunmetal or is there enough of a difference to have both?

I was hoping the marcasite would have more of a bronze/brown hue.

What do you guys think??

Very big difference in the color! And yes, definitely enough difference to warrant having both! I do!!! LOL I have the gunmetal Alexandra and just received the marcasite Kristen pleated satchel yesterday. They are both gorgeous colors. The marcasite is more of a bronzy-brown. I call it an oil-rubbed bronze! Very, very pretty color, and definitely a neutral. You won't be disappointed!!

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's exactly the color I was hoping it would be. I was considering the Java Kristin but held off "just in case" and now I'm glad I did. I think the marcasite is more down my alley. I hope my store gets it in so I can see it IRL.

Thanks for the clarifcation!! :yahoo:

You are more than welcome!! It is a gorgeous color, and personally, I like it more than the Java. It is different than the gunmetal, different than the silver or gold, and different than the color of the studded Alexandra I have.
