Gold and brass accents seem to be making a comeback these days, and it's about time. Maligned over the last couple of decades as some sort of Trump-meets-Dynasty misstep in interior design, gold can be tasteful and warm, if deployed properly and in moderation. Here is a roundup of gold flatware to spice up your table. So what do you think — would you go for gold?
Of course, if you plate something in real gold, it turns out that gets reflected in the price. These table settings are typically more expensive than their stainless steel counterparts, sometimes considerably more. Just keep in mind that some of these prices are for single settings, some are for 4 settings, and some are for a full set. And the last two examples are vintage sets from Etsy, a great source for vintage gold flatware that is less expensive than the new stuff.
