I am planning to buy a dinnerware set for my home and I know that we are not allowed to eat in gold instruments. Below is the description for the item that I am planning to buy:

A sophisticated shade of blue creates a bold border that is embellished with a lush and elegant gold scroll pattern, making a regal statement that will command attention at all your gatherings.

Does this mean this item we cannot buy? But I have also read that we cannot eat only in items that are made of purely gold so we can eat in item that have some gold pattern?

Can anyone clear my confusion?

  • That's the item I am talking about. I am unsure whether I can eat in gold pattern or not as well?

It is forbidden to eat and drink from a container made entirely of gold or silver, or if a certain piece of gold or silver is used in it. But if they have decorated it with silver and gold plating. There is nothing wrong with eating and drinking from those dishes and it is unobstructed.
