Helpful tip: Always start with the basic 5-pc place setting: teaspoon, place spoon, salad fork, place fork and place knife. Then, build from there. With fine sterling, acquiring the total number of 5-pc sets you desire may take time. Begin with four place settings and then build up to eight place settings, which is the most popular configuration.
