Do you ever wear gold plated jewelry to work? It is regaining popularity after being out of favor for many years. Why not have your badge reel complement the gold plated jewelry? I have added new badge reels that are gold with photo-glass cabochons on them. The badge reels are magnetic, but I can do them as a belt clip on badge reel as well.
I also added a new lanyard with a badge reel attached. This is also done with gold findings on the lanyard and a gold belt clip badge reel attached to it.
Give these a try. Available in my shop.
