I personally think plating it defeats the idea of the material. I like the look of blackened and blued, but would prefer natural.
Why pay for blue plated pearls, when you could just buy stainless blue balls :ccc:

Some of you may immediately think... "what about colored MOP?" IMO, when done right, and the integrity/iridescence remains intact, it's still unmistakably MOP. Whereas, you could easily plate a randomly or uniformly textured alloy dial for a lot cheaper than space rock with a similar look.
Maybe I'm missing the logic in your point, but any color can be enhanced or done the same way, including, but not limited to the "natural".
Just like anything else in this hobby it all comes down to personal preference.

I prefer natural and the blue and red options are intriguing but I think the rose would really be a classy look in the right case design. I think a high polish Parma on bracelet with rose gold meteorite dial would be nice. Maybe even with stones???

The way it looks mostly when it came crashing through the planet! You know, it's natural state.
You don't paint a solid gold watch red or any color for that matter.

Red is a hard color to do. I think it's

If they used the meteorite in the raw, natural state it would like a rusty rock kicked around in the dirt. They spend the time processing it for a reason.

The natural look is being enhanced. I understand that. I just don't believe in painting the dial. All the work put into a diamond. You don't paint a diamond.

:chuck: : Oh now it's being enhanced and polished! :hmm: Apples and oranges. We agree to disagree.

If you are looking for a gold jewel and are looking to find out more about this precious metal, you may feel a bit lost in any of the colors that gold jewelry can take. Indeed, depending on the composition of the alloy, the gold can be white, pink, green or even black if we consider the modern surface treatments.

Prefer rose gold as this is a color that's not in my collection, with either a rose gold or black bracelet.
