Its more shiny than in the pictures but had to turn off the flash to get it to come out decent. This is a hard color to photograph since it reflects the colors of its surroundings. I photographed it on a RED RUG!! so it looks coppery. I think there is a hint of pinkish tone to it though. I LOVE THIS - even my DD (who HATES and thinks its RIDICULOUS to spend this kind of $$) LOVES it!!
