Sorry to be annoying- I received my black Kelly belt with ghw and loved it a lot at first. I chose ghw because all my jewelries and bag hardwares are in yellow gold. However, after more research, I found that lots of influencers chose rghw for the blk belt. I become more and more undecided and hesitant. Should I exchange mine to rghw? Is the ghw too yellow? It does look a bit harsher than my Cartier yg jewelries. Thank you so much for your input!

I like both but the YG but it matches my bag and my jewelry so I have that one. It’s personal preference. Both are beautiful.

The YG on the Kelly belt looks fine. If you get rgh on the belt you’d end up buying more bags & jewelry to match, because that would look awkward. Don’t worry about the supposed influencers.

Hermes YG and RG are not super dramatically different. I prefer RG and always have... not bc of an influencer but bc I just love the tone. They may be picking RG bc it's relatively new for Hermes to do in these accessories. I intermix RG and YG all the time. Go with your heart dear....u really can't go wrong w either on Black so don't get a headache over it...

I have a black Kelly belt with palladium hardware because most of my black bags have silver hardware. When I got the gold Kelly belt I was back and forth over whether to get the RGH or the YGH but after some deliberation I realised that the yellow gold just made more sense as it matched the hardware on all my tan/brown/lighter colour bags and also matched my gold jewellery. Rose gold is lovely but I think it will be more difficult to style and its not as timeless as yellow gold.

But you should go with whatever you love and tbh your first instinct was probably the most sensible one :heart: I agree with the comment above - Palladium and yellow gold are staples, rose gold is nice to have if you already have the staples and want something different.
