Bring a Little Glam to the Table

Sigh. I do love a good gold set of flatware at the table, don’t you? It’s so pretty. So shiny. So glam. So… expensive?

Yes, unfortunately, gold flatware tends to be much more expensive that the garden-variety ol’ silver kind. I did find a set for as little as $27 per 5-piece place setting though, which while not cheap, is not too bad. Below are 12 of the prettiest, shiniest, glamiest (is that a word?) modern gold flatware sets. Commence drooling.

  • Diane Von Furstenberg – Night 1 of 12
    Diane Von Furstenberg - Night
    The stunning set that started it all for me. This one is hard to get a hold of in gold, though the silver is still readily found.
    Available at Neiman Marcus, $80 (down from $115) for a 5-piece setting
  • Gotham – Argento 2 of 12
    Gotham - Argento
    Strong shapes and a not-too-shiny finish makes this a good, masculine choice.
    Available at Neiman Marcus, $120 (down from $143) for a 5-piece setting
  • Oneida – Alessandra 3 of 12
    Oneida - Alessandra
    The bronze/gold finish on this set feels a little more traditional than some of the other choices here.
    Available at Macy's, $100 (down from $145) for a 5-piece setting
  • Diane Von Furstenberg – Powerstone 4 of 12
    Diane Von Furstenberg - Powerstone
    The faceted handles shapes are just slayng me. So GOOD.
    Available at Neiman Marcus, $150 for a 5-piece setting
  • Marchesa by Lenox – Imperial Caviar 5 of 12
    Marchesa by Lenox - Imperial Caviar
    The round handles have a subtle hammered texture to them.
    Available at Macy's, $90 for a 5-piece setting
  • Gold Flatware 6 of 12
    Gold Flatware
    The most affordable set of the bunch if you're buying by the setting. The squared off handles are especially handsome.
    Available at West Elm, $29 for a 5-piece setting
  • Anthropologie – Gold-dipped 7 of 12
    Anthropologie - Gold-dipped
    The best of both worlds! Sing it with me now: Silver and gold, silver and gold…
    Available at Anthropologie, $38 for a 5-piece setting
  • Hammered Gold ‘Country’ 8 of 12
    Hammered Gold 'Country'
    A fantastic price for eight place settings (just $27 per set)! A nice hammered finish, too.
    Available at Neiman Marcus, $220 for eight 5-piece settings
  • Rose Gold Flatware 9 of 12
    Rose Gold Flatware
    Oh my. I'm crushing on this set big time. Shiny rose gold is so lovely and feminine.
    Available at West Elm, $39 for a 5-piece setting
  • Linea Ice Oro 10 of 12
    Linea Ice Oro
    Hello, gorgeous. The shape of each piece is just perfect.

    Another more traditional option, but just enough detail to make it beautiful, not fussy.
