The curated kitchen: perfect napkin rings

I’ve said, in the past, that the placemat is the jewelry of the dining room table. But, no, I think the real jewelry is the napkin ring. Especially if it is the hefty, octagonal, solid pewter Veneto Napkin Ring, cast with a turned lip on either side and imprinted with a traditional maker’s mark. Or the jewel-toned enamel and metallic Enamel Tile Napkin Rings. Both sourced at Nineteen Mercier.
