Just simply use color adjustments to get the golden color.

Hue / Saturation

Curves

Color Balance (plug-in)

These are just a couple adjustments you can use. :wink:

It should be that simple if you want to have the same texture, but just a golden color. :wink:

A single colored gold would certainly look bland

The key to a gold look is the reflections off it, simulated by using gradients.

Here's a good tutorial to help you along:

Also worthy of mention is the excellent Metalize plugin.
