If you are looking for contrast and versatility, our sources say, go with silver.

Silver is by far one of the most versatile, elegant and popular metals. Its smooth, cool to the touch, with a light airy feel. Silver can be polished to a glass-like sheen or etched, textured to have an antique look or a gorgeous patina that gives it a sense of history.

Silver is also perfect for a contrasting finish. As the base metal, it surrounds other metals like gold, brass or copper to create a luminous effect that tells a potent story on your custom lapel pin, medal or coin.
