Top Caviar Spoons

Considering serving caviar at your next event? Stop right there. You won’t want to serve this delicious delicacy using just any silverware. The wrong choice can mean a diminished experience for your guests’ palettes. Traditionally, caviar is served alongside mother of pearl spoons. This choice is crucial because the mother of pearl doesn’t distract from the taste and fragrance of the caviar itself (which is what can happen if you unwittingly use a metal spoon). Other times, you can find caviar spoons made from gold or animal horn, but if you want a cruelty-free and not quite-so-extravagant spoon, you’ll want to go with the mother of pearl option. Here are four caviar spoon sets to consider.

Who Needs a Party to Have Caviar?

Treat yourself! If you just enjoy having a little caviar on the regular, then there’s no reason why you wouldn’t buy a single caviar spoon for your own personal use.

What We Liked

You might not need an entire set of spoons if you don’t serve caviar to guests. If it’s just a special treat for you and your household, then go with a high-quality, single spoon like this one, with a three-inch handle, made in Thailand with all-white mother of pearl. Buy it here. 

Best for Small Events
