The Queens Favourite Cutlery Sets for 2017

The right cutlery set can last a lifetime, but in order to last a lifetime – cutlery has to meet two main principles. It has to be designed and manufactured to exceptional levels to guarantee longevity, and it has to be designed so well, you actually want it to last a lifetime! As well as making the perfect gifts for special occasions, they can be a lovely treat for yourself and make a very special heirloom.

At Kings and Queens, we work hard to source the very best cutlery sets from the world’s leading cutlery designers, including Amefa, Arthur Price and Villeroy & Boch. Once we have selected the cutlery, we work hard to secure the products at the right prices – meaning that we pass on discounts directly to you.

Below, I will run through some of my favourites currently available on the site.

My Favourite Modern Cutlery Set

Modern Cutlery Sets, surprisingly suit both contemporary and traditional kitchens and dinner services. Increasingly popular with customers of all ages, they can add a nice twist to any table. One of our bestselling contemporary cutlery sets comes from Villeroy & Boch and is their Modern Grace collection.

This collection is inspired from urban architecture, the minimalistic pieces offer soft curves and clean contours, which enhance functionality. A full range of table cutlery is available, in both sets and individual pieces.

Modern Grace Cutlery Set 30 Piece

Starting at just £9.90 at Kings and Queens. 

My Favourite Traditional Cutlery Sets

Right at the other end of the design spectrum, traditional cutlery is perfectly suited for cosy farmhouse kitchens and for those who enjoy cooking and serving traditional, warming food. One of my favourite sets is from Amefa, and is possibly one of the most recognised designs of all time, Kings. This very English pattern was originally introduced in the early 19th century and is still produced 200 years later with an undiminished popularity. Decorated with stylised honeysuckle, sea shells and soft curving lines, Kings has always demanded a place at the highest tables. The collection is available in sets, as well as individual pieces.

Amefa Kings Sets start from £16.00 with a saving of 20% on normal retail price.

My Favourite ‘Value’ Cutlery Set

Maxwell & Williams provide affordable, great value homewares that don’t sacrifice either quality or design.

In my eyes, one of the best value cutlery sets on the market is the Maxwell & Williams Motion Set. The motion cutlery set boasts a sophisticated, minimalistic design, with a fluid and curving handle. This design ensures the cutlery feels great in the hand, as well as looking great. The range is further complimented by the standing knives, which sit on the table with the blade facing upwards.

Motion 40 Piece Cutlery Set

 Full sets start at £52, with 20% discount off RRP.

My Favourite ‘High End’ Cutlery Set


My favourite ‘high end’ cutlery has got to come from the magnificently luxurious Arthur Price of England range.

For the Technician - the silver plate cutlery is electroplated with pure silver to an average depth of 35 microns with the depth increased to 40 microns for pieces in more general use.

For the Home Styler - it’s simply gorgeous!

There are 12 different pattern ranges to choose from which cover the full spectrum of choice from plain and elegant to decorated and opulent. I always choose Britannia at home in the castle. This very British Pattern is based on the threaded old English patterns, which were popular during the 1750’s. The pattern has been a firm favourite with our customers for a long time, and the silver-plated collections come with either an indefinite or 50-year guarantee. The collection is available in sets, as well as individual pieces. If you prefer, Britannia is also available in stainless steel.

Britannia- Silver Plate 58 Piece With Canteen

Britannia Silver Plate items start from £9.60, with a saving of 20%.

My Favourite Kids Cutlery Set

Children’s Cutlery makes meals both fun and easy, attractive colours and easy to use designers ensure that your child has every possible advantage when trying to eat with cutlery. One of my favourite sets is the Amefa Bear Cutlery, which comes in a three piece set.

Perfectly shaped and sizes for little hands, this cutlery set boasts a cute bear motif which have been embossed into high quality stainless steel, perfect for your very own prince or princess.

Childrens 3 Piece Set - Bear
