I received these for my wedding in 2002 and could not be happier. The quality is excellent and they still look great after 17 years of near daily use. I haven't had a single problem with the 12 flatware settings, the 4-pc hostess set nor the 3-pc serving set. They look great for day-to-day use and for special occasions like holidays & other celebrations. And, because the style is classic, they're still 'in style'!
