Mixing Hardware

I've been looking for the perfect charm to go on my Alma bb in noir magnetique but I have a dilemma. There are a ton that I love but the majority of bag charms have golden hardware or a few with silver hardware and none with the gunmetal hardware similar to the noir. Do you think it is a bad idea to mix hardware? Any suggestions what you think may look nice on my bb?

Thanks for the help!

I think with the noir magnetique it's easier to mix hardware since the gunmetal is hard to match and more subtle. Maybe a Tapage charm- that already has mixed metals would look nice? Or a charm that's more colorful and less heavy on the hardware color like the Naïf charm.

I would go to the store and try a few on! The SAs normally have good suggestions!

Yes, I thought about the tapage, but I'm afraid it might be too heavy for my bb. I like the suggestion of going for something with color! Thanks!
