In our society right now, the use of flatware is rampant and it becomes a symbol of different culture and tradition. Gorham silver sterling flatware were made with elegance and touch of finesse that you will always be proud to present it with guests. It is also because of its royalty designs that it became a hit to antique collectors.
All you have to do is to simply wash the flatware immediately after its use, pay close attention to the kind of detergent or dish washing produce that you use (experts say that certain products that are lemon scented or contain chloride can be dangerous), and make sure to now soak the sterling silver flatware overnight as this can cause damage to the metal.
Stainless steel flatware is manufactured in different grades as well. The highest quality stainless steel is referred to as 18/10 which means that it is 18% chromium and 10% nickel in composition. Stainless steel flatware is resistant to staining and rust proof because of the chromium whereas the luster and shine results from the nickel used in the composition. Composite steel is the balance of the composition and is what gives stainless steel flatware its durability and strength. Flatware is also manufactured with gold accents. Hand washing and polishing is also required with this type of flatware just like with silver flatware. Flatware with gold accents is also considered to be formal as well, just like silver flatware.
