Just curious…I lucked out and got very fine china from a relative in the family. I wasn’t sure I was going to register for China but when I saw this 3 years ago I knew it was everything I had always wanted. Luckily, it was given to my grandmom who gave it to my mom who gave it to me:)

Is there really china that costs $800+ for one place setting! Woah!

both my hubby and i have sets of fine china that have been handed down to us that we’ll get when we have a house someday, but we upgraded our everyday ware through our registry to vera wang naturals, which was about $60 per setting. i LOVE it!

Our china is regularly priced at $157 per setting, but for the time we’ve had it on the registry, it has been on sale for $108 for almost that entire time. I think that’s in large part due to the fact that it’s being discontinued (every piece we’ve received has had 2002 stamped on the back, so I don’t think it has been produced for years).
I’m surprised by the poll options. Our experience picking out a china pattern didn’t reveal anything that was much more expensive than what we picked out.

Miine was $405 for a place setting, but we also registered for individual pieces so there were items as low as $65. I love china and we will use it often. We received a good amount of it-10 place settings plus some serving pieces.
Littlest Birds the big stores such as Macy’s and BB&B dont really carry patterns over $150. But if you look at places like Michael C. Fina, Neiman marcus or Bloomingdales, there are many,many pricier patterns.

I bought the Lenox Love Lace china at…get this…an antique store for about $3/plate. I only bought plates and bowls because that’s all we use!

@Killer Queen:Mine is about $700 per place setting. It’s ridiculous, but it IS gorgeous!! Thankfully, I didn’t pay for it! (It was passed down)

Mine was technically $150, but it was always on sale for $99.

@cakegal: Good thing we never checked out Bloomingdales, I am swooning over some of the $500-900/setting patterns on their website. I don’t think our guests would have jumped on that. Also a good thing I’m crazy in love with the pattern we did get!
