FYI the grey color is as dark as the color pictured, almost black. I read reviews saying that the silver is a shiny metallic not a lighter grey, but that the grey was actually lighter in person which I found is not true. I also read reviews that only the white version is soft, but tried the grey anyways. Big mistake—not soft at all, despite its “Egyptian gov’t certified” label. The feeling is like a scratchy sateen, even after washing & drying w/softeners. The California King size is too big for my California King comforter so despite the corner ties, comforter shifts too much. The ties are too short as well, unable to tie a bow, so comforter will be difficult to remove with knots being the only option. Overall, not worth the price, do not recommend.
