ASK US ?????????


Just found your wonderful site.  Would you share with me your knowledge of silver vs. stainless. 
Also, 18/8 vs. 18/10 stainless?  Any information you can offer would be greatly appreciated. 

Stainless steel is great for  every day use.  It stands up to hard wear.  The best stainless is the 18/8 which is constructed of 18% chromium and  8%  nickel content..   There is also  18/10 & 18/12. This contains 10% & 12% nickel.  Nickel combats stains and lends flatware a brighter silver sheen. 
Many of our customers choose both a set of sterling or silverplate for the special occasions & a set of stainless for  everyday  use.  PLA  11/25/2001
