If you’ve shopped for dinner plates at all recently, you might have experienced some serious sticker shock. Some plates can cost, say, $52 each. EACH! We assume that everyone would rather get four plates for that price, so we decided to round up some of the most beautiful ceramic plates on the market — for $13 a piece or less. Each of these plates look like they would have cost you a small fortune, but we swear your wallet won’t be hurting anytime soon. The best part? They’re all dishwasher-safe, which is really what counts when it comes to good-looking dinnerware.

Williams Sonoma

Finding affordable dinnerware at Williams Sonoma can feel impossible sometimes but, the luxe home retailer actually has more affordable options than you might think! Case in point: this gorgeous plate set. Exceptionally durable and resistant to impact, chips, and utensil wear, this set is a simple yet exceptional choice.

Bed Bath & Beyond

Marble has been super trendy for a while now, and we don’t see signs of that changing any time soon. The best thing about these plates, though? They’re not actually marble. They’re porcelain, which means you don’t have to worry about staining them. They also come in a set of four for just $32!

The shape! The colors! The texture! These matte stoneware plates are a trifecta of perfection. For what it’s worth, we also love them as a set with the other matching pieces.

Our Place
was $50.00

Our Place may be known for its iconic cookware, but don't sleep on its serveware! Featuring a hand-painted matte base with a glossy, hand-speckled finish, these plates feel relaxed but not sloppy. Not much for pink? They’re also available in a neutral light and dark grey option.

If you want something super simple that’s still a step above IKEA, it should not surprise you to learn that Amazon’s simple AmazonBasics line has you covered. Six plates for less than $20? It can't be beat.

West Elm
was $12.50

We’ve seen very similar plates at Food52 for $72 each. (And that’s for an eight-inch plate! The 11-incher would set you back $85!) So these are a total bargain. Also, H&M Home sells another similar plate for $9.

Crate & Barrel

Etsy is the best place to find the wildly popular speckled dinnerware, but you’ll pay up for those hand-crafted pieces (think: around $48 for a single plate). If you’re shopping on a budget (aren’t we all?), we’d like to suggest this option from Crate & Barrel.

Did you know H&M has a killer Home and Kitchn section? I mean, look at this plate! With a contrasting rim and gold-colored details, this porcelain plate is perfect for special occasions and looks way pricer than it actually is.

West Elm
was $14.00

Another option that will have some variation from plate to plate, these plates are finished with a reactive glaze, which is responsible for that hypnotic, cosmic look. It also comes in blue and black color options.

Crate & Barrel

Not as boring as a white plate and not as bold as a brightly colored one, this gray plate is a happy compromise for those who want to take a little risk.
