An elegant addition to any table, this classic flatware set is plated in 24-carat gold and features a handsome matte finish. Five-piece set includes salad fork, dinner fork, tea spoon, soup spoon and butter knife. Timeless set makes a stylish place setting for any occasion.
Care: Knives should be hand washed and dried immediately, or removed from the dishwasher at the end of the cycle and hand dried with a soft cloth. Avoid scrubbing the knives with scouring pads, as the coating will slowly fade away.
I just purchased service for 8 and, I am more than satisfied. The weight in your hand, proportions and the beautiful finish are so much more than described and pictured. I actually found the serving pieces on another site which I also purchased. A great find.
how do you clean / polish gold plated silverware ?

Best Answer:Here's a simple 3 step process I found on eHow: 1 Clean excess dirt and grime from the gold plated flatware with a soft cloth, mild soap and lukewarm water. Soak the flatware in warm to hot soapy water to loosen up difficult food deposits, but not for too long---just long enough for the dirt to lift off the surface. Be sure to get in between the rungs of the forks, and to wash the entire surface of each piece of flatware right down to the handles.
2 For stubborn spots, add a little lemon juice to your cloth and buff the flatware until the stains come out, but be sure to rinse off the flatware immediately with hot water and soap as the acid can eat through the gold plating if left on too long. Vinegar also works for this purpose.
3 Put a bit of baking soda on a damp, soft cloth and lightly rub each gold plated utensil until it is shiny and good as new. Do not scrub or rub because the baking soda is strong enough to remove the gold plating if it is worked in too much.
