Brigid of Kincarn, "Gyronny sable and Or, a lozenge within a bordure
azure", registered in January 2002?

Yours does not have color on color in RfS terms.  The lozenge and
bordure are color, but the field is neutral in SCA RfS terms: half
color and half metal, and no part of the field shares a tincture with
what's on it so visibility is preserved.  That's expressly allowed in
the RfS.
