This dinnerware set is quality made, not the lightweight dishes some would expect for this price. They are beauitful! The gemstone colors that surround the pieces are vibrant. The center is more of a dark beige rather than an ecru and helps the band color blocks to pop out. I know it sounds strange but when I am surrounded by this dinnerware collection I feel happy! Try them!
Just received so this is going off feel and looks. Overstock.com did a great job packaging. No chips or breaks. Dishes are as described. Thought I wouldn't like it but ordered cause wife liked picture. I actually do like the looks and sizes. Nice that oven, microwave and dishwasher safe.
I think these dishes are beautiful. The colors are vibrant and the cream color center helps the bright colors really stand out. I even bought a set and sent it to my Son and his Wife after I bought mine. They love them as well. I do not worry about dishwasher safe, I do all dishes by hand!
These dishes look pretty, and they feel heavy. But there must have been a defect in the salad plates for the set I received. There is just my partner and I. We are not careless with things. Even though it says, "Dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe on the dishes: one salad plate broke in the oven while re-heating leftovers; one salad plate broke in the dishwasher; and one cracked while in the microwave. ?! We have one salad plate left... but I'm unable to find replacements so the set is useless. Will donate and purchase another set of dishes. Won't be this brand though. Probably would have been better off with dollar store plates.
The dishes were a house warming gift for our daughter who just purchased a condo. They are lovely and she just loved them for their square shape and rich colors. Plus the price was not a deal-breaker for my wallet. I would recommend them to anyone.
