HTML design technique question: gold and silver borders for table

My client wants to highlight two sets of product thumbnails with gold and silver borders.
How can i achieve a chrome-like effect?

I can only think of trying to make a fixed-size background (fixed is dangerous i know) and making a frame in PS.
Are there any other tricks people can think of?

thanks!

why not just do this in CSS?

<style>
table {border:1px solid #000}
all four borders will be black
table img {border:1px solid #000}
all four borders of the image will be black
</style>

just change the color code to gold and one to silver, play around with thickness and colors to get the affect

just play around with the CSS you could try: {border-style: solid double} or {border-style: groove double} which to me both look 3d. just change the colour to gold

another example would be this one: http://www.netmechanic.com/news/vol5/css_no5.htm
