Trading Phrases has three shades of metallic colors. Let’s start with the classic Satin Gold (91). Below is a picture of our three metallic colors next to a shiny faux-gold plastic trophy and an old weathered key. As you can see in the picture, the trophy is much shinier than the satin gold color. The Satin Gold has the barest hint of a sheen and isn’t at all reflective like the trophy. The tone of gold is also much deeper. However, our Satin Gold is a bit brighter than the old weathered key next to it.

In the picture below, our Satin Silver (90) is next to a typical car key and a silver-colored necklace. As you can see, our Satin Silver is less reflective than both of those surfaces and slightly grayer and bluer than typical shiny silver. Our Satin Silver has the quality of an old weathered nickel, darker silver with just the barest hint of sheen. 

Satin Copper (92) color next to an old weathered key, a copper necklace, and an antique copper-colored pocket watch. Our Satin Copper is not as reflective as the pocket watch, but is roughly as reflective as the links on the copper chain are or the weathered key is. It has just the barest hint of sheen. Our Satin Copper is roughly the same color as the weathered key but is a tone or two more brown.  As for the dark copper necklace, it is a few shades brighter than the chain’s links. This is our most popular satin metallic color and is very beautiful in person! The pocket watch is a hair more bright than Satin Copper, since it has more of a reddish tint to it than a brown.

In the picture below, we have included all of the items so you can compare them against our three metallic shades together.
