It depends, because shell varies from both AE and Alden. In my case the Ravello has no red undertones at all and are identical to my AE Walnut Dundees. I can not tell them apart on the shelf unless I take them down and look for 2 eyes vs. 3 eyelets. Ravello far right, 3 Walnut shell to the left. And of course over time and with UV exposure as mentioned all brown shell changes color.
