I bought gold, and it has a lovely sheen that suits my room. The fabric is heavy (to be expected with 650TC), so it weighs down my comforter more than I expected, but it looks lavish. It is cotton, so it was very wrinkled when I first put it on the bed, but after a few days it's not terribly wrinkled. If I had ironed it, I suspect it would still be this wrinkled after several days of folding it back and moving it around on a king sized bed. If you want pristine wrinkle free, I think you need to go with polyester, which in my opinion doesn't feel as nice.
