Important remark on color perception!!!

Dear buyers, to avoid any inconvenience you need to understand this information about color perception.

Color perception depends on the light conditions. All the pictures in our shop were taken under three professional light spots with color temperature 5100-5500K. It doesn't mean we publish not realistic pictures. It means the powerful source of light can penetrate through upper film of black patina, and the color appear more "milk chocolate" than "dark chocolate".
But, as one our buyer noticed, under average room conditions it will rather look as "dark chocolate".
To make this fact more clear we took two pictures without professional sources of light. Please feel the difference between these two pictures: one was taken on open sunshine light with color temperature 5050K. Another shoot was made in the room with electric light, what color temperature is 3050K.
Here is a question: what is more realistic?
