When it comes to your table setting — flatware, to be exact — the Midas touch is now trending. Yes, your basic silver place setting is a classic, but gold offers a glitzy touch, regardless of the occasion. The set that first caught our eye, reinforcing our obsession, was this Sambonet five-piece place setting. It's glamorous yet sleek, elegant but durable. But there's a catch: one setting runs $140 — quite pricey for trendy flatware! Although it's made in Italy, the price tag may require a bit of thought or a wedding registry.
If you're unable to give up on your table's perfect gold accent, we found this Oro Viejo Flatware. It's not as shiny as the setting we first spotted, but it's just as stylish and almost the exact shape. Since it costs about $28 per setting, you can actually host a dinner party instead of a party of one! How's that for a gold standard?
