    Thanks Dennis, actually it isn't a cusom order but something for my Etsy & Folksy shops. Hopefully they will see (or maybe not notice) the colour difference.

    Thanks Dennis, I use silver tubing a lot for facets & cabs and do as you say, so far I have not had a problem. I am just very wary about gold because of the costs involved.
