I quite like the style of the attached DB blazer with silver buttons. I have seen many with gold buttons - are silver buttons an appropriate choice?

Many thanks!

It depends on your complexion.

To me it is impossible to wear golden buttons

I had switched from gold to silver (sterling, although) buttons on my blazer, mostly because I felt that golden ones are too "bling". Prefer the patina that is on the silver ones, more discreet and better looking against dark navy.

I prefer gold but have worn silver. As long as neither is too shiny, then they both are fine for me.
