Smile best pickguard/pickups color matches?

Hi everyone! Just bought an Ibanez prestige RG2550z and was thinking of changing the pickups, also maybe the pickguard and knobs at the same time.
I'd like to have your opinions on which colors would match the best with this guitar since it's pretty hard to find a customed one on google. By the way I have the black one. Any ideas on which custom pickguard brand I should go with? I was thinking on maybe getting a swirled one, maybe green/yellow with pretty much the same pickups color, like the old jem's style you know.
Pictures are welcome!
Thanks for your time!

I'd personally go for black pearl with black covered pickups with the black guitar.

A white & black tuxedo look may be kinda cool, something like so.

FWIW, I did a black (smoke) mirror guard on my 550.
