Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cinderannie simple elegant dishes
I have had these dishes since our wedding five months ago, and I love them. They are just the right combination of earthy and elegant. The only thing I have against this pattern is that the small appetizer plates don't match the simplicity of the others - each one has a large (in my opinion, ugly) flower on it, so we didn't buy them. I would really love some plain appetizer plates in this color because I miss having small plates.
They are nice and sturdy. Only one bowl has chipped slightly, and that was because I dropped another heavy dish onto it while washing. So they are not indestructible, but they do seem to hold up pretty nicely. And I love the graphite color.

Ok, the reviews that say they are having problems with scratches must scrub with diamonds or something. For me, I have had these dishes for several years, and have not had any damaged in any way, except from extreme abuse. They have survived moving 3 times using what little care under paid movers use. Some have even bounced off the floor a few times with no damage evident. In those 5 years, I have only had 1 plate chip, and that was from dropping it just right (or wrong) on a ceramic tile floor. These dishes are so durable, it was a surprise that it chipped. We use these day in and day out, with no special care (and moderate abuse) and would not buy any other brand.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by JackieCH Colorwave Graphite Is So Versatile
We requested Noritake's Colorwave Graphite place settings on our wedding registry and couldn't be happier. We have eight place settings plus saucers, square plates, creamer, sugar bowl, salt & pepper shakers and extra serving bowls and plates. We use these items as everyday dinnerware but also for special occassions because the collection is so versatile. Our friends and family always comment on how nice the collection is. I love the clean look and the durability of the collection as well as the fact that we can use the plates in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. I am definitely looking to add more Noritake to our collection and would recommend the collection to everyone!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by KellyO Best choice on our registry
My husband and I chose the Colorwave Graphite square pieces when selecting items for our wedding registry. We absolutely love the simple, classic look of the pattern, and especially enjoy the floral accent plates. As we watched items become checked off of the registry online, we were most excited when pieces for our dinner set and serving pieces were chosen by guests. Now that I have a complete service for 12, I use them every time I entertain, and am frequently complimented on the pattern. I would defintely recommend any of the Noritake products as I am defintely pleased and satisfied with these purchases.
