I have 2 pomme items & they are slightly different in color!! My reade pm is redder & you can see more gold sparkles (in my opinion, it's prettier) while my french purse has deeper embossed LV pattern compare to the reade pm & it's deeper in the red color (less noticible compare to the reade pm). The glaze used on the french purse seems to be thicker than my reade pm too. Anyone have similar experiences too? Does this bother you at all?? I mean, even though they are suppose to be the same color, but I like one more than the other. Should I return the french purse & wait for one that has a brighter red color?....do you think I am just being silly? Thanks!
