After looking at countless patterns and investigating numerous companies, my husband and I chose Noritake Silver Palace for our wedding registry. Our pick was based on the look, feel, and overall quality of the pattern. We also liked that it is made in Japan. That was over two years ago and many of our family and friends have generously added to our set. Silver Palace was definitely the right choice. It is timeless, elegant,and simple without sacrificing the detail that makes it special. Every time I use it I am happy to be able to make meals a little bit more special for our guests.
