The style and quantity of your dinnerware solely depends on personal taste and the size of your family plus any guests you may have. The average household has one casual set for everyday use and a more formal set for holiday parties or brunches.
For quantity purposes, it is highly suggested that you opt for 5 twelve piece sets. The typical five piece settings include a dinner, salad, and/or dessert plate; a bread and butter plate, plus tea cup and saucer. If you don’t plan on ever having guests of this sizing; having these extra pieces on hand can serve as spares in case any of them gets damaged.
Determining quality in dinnerware is pretty simple you can choose to do the following:

- Flick the plate with your fingers and listen for a ring
- Look at the color and make sure it is even and the smooth should be smooth and lustrous (shiny).
