Even though I am fully stocked with “traditional” silver flatware, I can’t stop thinking about all the sleek black and onyx dinnerware that I have been spotting lately. With all white plates and dishes, onyx flatware can be a quick way to modernize your tabletop. I found a beautiful set with a matte finish from Dwell Studio at $100 per set. This seemed a little pricey so I was elated to find a similar design with an enamel finish at West Elm for only $39 per set. When trying to decide whether you splurge or save, the care instructions are also an important factor. The Dwell Studio version recommends hand washing whereas West Elm’s is dishwasher safe. Given that tidbit, I think we all know which set we would choose, don’t we?
