Only some of the bricks are metallic gold. The rest are tan or yellow translucent. Fortunately, tree lights cast the light around such that it is still attractive. For any other Lego (or generic brick) ornament, I would say that you are better off making your own. But since gold bricks are hard to come by, this is the better way to go. Still, I would have much preferred a smaller ornament filled with just metallic gold bricks and with a gold bow.
Despite its lack of packaging and relatively high price, it's a nice holiday ornament that's filled with many rare bricks, so I can definitely recommend it. If you're really only interested in the gold bricks, though, you might want to just bricklink them.
Super pleased with this product. My son is 6 and still very much a novice builder. He's getting more enjoyment out of this little ornament full of bricks that from the sets that we build together! Sure he was thrilled with the gold bricks that were included, but that doesn't mean that he was disappointed in the other colors that were there. He's been sorting the blocks by color and building and rebuilding with just these brinks since it came out of his stocking on Christmas morning. I hesitated to buy because of the negative reviews, but in the end I couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome. Thanks, Lego!
