Beautiful enough for everyday, luxurious enough for sophisticated dining, timeless design, superb balance, and flawless finish everything one looks for in stainless flatware can be found in this pattern from Gorham's Design Studio Collection. 18/10 stainless steel.
This is my formal set of stainless. I have all of the pieces. I prefer heavy flatware, and I find the weight of this set very nice. It cleans wonderfully in the dishwasher and buffs nicely with a soft cloth. I have had the set for 7 years with moderate use, and I am very satisfied. Even yesterday was still receiving compliments on it. After receiving another place setting of china for Christmas, I hopped online to find another place setting of this flatware to find that it is still readily available at Dillards! I am so happy that I will not have to hunt around to buy a set! So, I am thrilled that even after Gorham changed hands in 2005 that this pattern is still available (unlike my retired china set).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
