I think it needs some really ugly grips like these:

Default Gold plated 1911 parts

If you're looking for gold plated 1911 parts, check out www.1911goldrush.com. The guy does good work and isn't all bad on price. I used his gold plating service. I sent him my parts and he polished and plated them for $35 per part. I got them back in about 2 weeks. Since the parts came off my gun there was no fitting issues, and my gun looks great.

I do gold, and other, plating.
Gold does not wear well at all because the metal is so soft. While it is beautiful, I don't recommend it because of wear issues.
