1. I have a similar priced set I was gifted from our registry. Honestly, biggest waste of money ever. Silverware gets misplaced- my husband will bring something to work to  never be seen again. I’m seriously missing a third of the set.

2. Those are really beautiful, but no suggestions. I ended up going to crate and barrel and picking up a few sets of their regular flatware. Are they boring? Yes.. but I have really cool dishes 😀

1. I would go for it.  I also have a similar priced set and can’t wait to get it (it’s stuck in France…I can’t believe I just said that).  I think that it’s great that it’s from Portugal and the black is really cool.  The only issue I can see would be replacing it or adding to the sets.  Honestly, bad flatware ticks me off- if you’ve ever had a fork or spoon bend when you’re trying to take ice cream out of the container for example, it’s really annoying.  I don’t think that $60 a place setting is too much if you’re going to have it for a long time and it’s made well.

2.  I don’t have any suggestions for something similar…it’s really unique!

Try looking at George Jensen flatware before committing to DWR. Great flatware can last a really REALLY longtime, even just regular plate vs sterling silver. One recommendation – make sure it’s dishwasher safe -that is, if you have one.
