Are you still using the forks and knives you got when you were in college? It might be time to say goodbye to those budget items and invest in a set that will actually remind you that you don’t live in a dorm or 450-square-foot apartment anymore. This Rigby flatware is a splurge, but if you’re on the market to spoil yourself, or a loved one, Rigby is a great option.

One of my biggest annoyances with my regular forks, knives, and spoons is water stains and marks. Even when everything is cleaned religiously, the silverware never actually looks sparklingly clean. That might have to do with the fact that I bought it while on a budget, but nonetheless, it has been an annoyance. After using the Rigby flatware for a couple of weeks, I am happy to report that after careful washing (it is expensive!) those stains are not a concern for me anymore.

Rigby’s 20-piece sets range in price, starting at $180 for their classic flatware and up to $280 for their satin-finish flatware. Each set includes four dessert forks, four dinner spoons, four knives, and four breakfast spoons. Didn’t even know there was a difference in spoons and forks? You’re not alone. If you don’t need a full 20-piece set, you can get each of those items individually (in two-piece sets) for $19.

Wedding season is currently in effect, so, if you need any ideas for those friends who don’t really have a registry and just want you to “be there” for the moment. A nice set of flatware will always come in handy! Plus, they’ll feel extra fancy when they host guests for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. with this set.
