which hardware colour scheme???

Ok got my Black 91 540R LTD body in for a re-spray, it had a chip in the trem cavity (front of body) & 2 chips on the front & some scratches on the back so it needed done it couldnt be left as war wounds lol. Oh & the body is getting redone black
The guitar came original with all black hardware but mine seems to have cosmo black pickup rings ? Might have been the last owner that put these on but there worn out now. the Lo pro edge & machineheads lock nut etc are like new so not replacing these at all.
Anyways im wondering if to get new cosmo black pickup rings & dome knobs from ibanez instead of getting the black versions.
I think with the body being black & all the hardware being black the colour is overkill you cant really see anything stand out so do i add the cosmo bits for a bit of variety?
I looked on the 91 ibanez catalogue & the jewel blue 540RLTD pictured comes with what looks like black hardware apart from the pickup rings & dome knobs which are cosmo black.

Love to hear everyones opinions & thoughts on this

Nah im not to keen on gold hardware. I owned Two 540FM's both had gold hardware & i changed both for cosmo. Dont get me wrong i think those guitars suit having gold but its just not for me. Has to be black or Cosmo. i suppose coz the pickup rings & dome knobs are not that expensive from ibanez i might just get both finishes & see which suits it better. Just cant seem to make a decision on it.
