I think it is quite likely that the gold details didn't look good or stand out enough on-screen with the new yellow/gold/avocado command uniforms.

Besides, the Starfleet/Enterprise chevron was small and silver during The Cage, so a color change isn't a big deal.

Must be another one of those "noncalibrated eyeballs" things... because that arrowhead, in that image, sure looks gold to me.
The outer edge is gold (where a black edge is during the series), and the interior is silvery/whitish. I'll see if I can find another pic...

EDIT:

Here it is in high-def:

Gold outer edge but silvery/white interior.
