Mary you have photo of your fountain ?When I ordered my fountain, I had to pick from about 20 finishes/colors. Boy was that hard. I finally decided that I wanted it to have an italian look so I picked a terra cotta with darkish going through it. All black would make it look very parisian. It just depends on the look you want. Just remember that colors do fade over time. Mary you have photo of your fountain ?
By the way, I think white with gilded accents would look to garish. But that's just me.
