We probably wouldn't own either the Nero flatware or the Meret set, but having just seen them in person at Crate & Barrel, we were surprised by their attention grabbing appeal (especially the Meret).
Meret stainless steel pieces "are gilded with a durable matte gold finish." Nero stainless steel are coated in a gunmetal finish. Slick, eye-catching, festive! Each five-piece set runs $64.95 and is available at Crate & Barrel.
