Crankset compatibility

Is there a silver crankset in the 46-36-26 range that will work with an indexed Deore front derailleur and shifter?

I really wanted a silver crankset but bought a black Deore set for compatibility. I recently read something that made it sound like there are some other non-SHimano silver cranksets that are compatible with Deore shifters? Is this the case? I'm not really interested in Shimano's road's all geared too high.
