Forget being born with a silver spoon in your mouth—today's opulence standards call for a gold one. If you've noticed, the trend for gold flatware sets has been showing up in the chicest homes for the last five years or so. Now, the options are so plentiful that choosing one can be a challenge. Fortunately, Nest Casa has done the digging for you to discover the best choice available.

While popular on the best-dressed tables of today, gold cutlery is certainly not novel. Cutlery trends throughout the civilized world have yielded forks, knives, and spoons, made from horn, wood, pewter, and copper. Crude metals like copper reacted with food, producing a bad taste. Genuine gold and silver versions did not, but they were prohibitive in cost—thus, only available to noble classes. Stainless steel was the real game changer when it was invented in the early 20th century, as it didn't affect the taste of the food. Today, modern techniques are used to give gold-finished flatware a shiny glean that, in some cases, contains real gold. Though, be forewarned: Some gold flatware requires handwashing.
