of metals and mantling

Does anyone have documentation as to what scribes and illuminators of the Middle Ages would have done for mantling tinctures in all-metal armory (i.e. Jerusalem)? It seems that "Or doubled argent" or vice-versa would not create adequate contrast, and the armory itself would be lost in the mantling.
