My grandma has a spectacular collection of silver napkin rings - not just the typical circles, but the most intricate and fanciful figures. We spent hours polishing them together when I was little and they still hold a very special place in my heart. I can't wait to use them all the time when she passes them on to me. Like my grandma, I think they are best enjoyed as part of a table setting, not just stored in a cabinet.
