Default Grip Suggestions

Looking for a set of grips for the S&W. Factory Rosewood DD grips are nice but I want something a little more dressy. Have seen some of the grip threads and was leaning towards a two tone Desert Ironwood or a burled maple, maybe something with black and red hues. Looking for some suggestions and sources. Also feel free to comment on wood versus synthetic or G-10, etc.

Gun is all black with a stainless barrel and trigger.

Thanks

I have two sets of her slim grips. One is cocobolo and the other is rosewood. They're like this: http://www.esmeralda.cc/sn43219.jpg
