"This is a wonderful stylish china that looks great by itself or with accent plates. It was hard finding a white bone china pattern and when I found white pearl I knew I had found it. Please bring it back to your store!"
"I registered for and received 8 place settings, 2 serving bowls, the large platter, the smaller rectangular platter, creamer and sugar bowl and tea pot for my wedding in 2008. I picked them because they were both beautiful and supposedly durable for everyday use. After using the large platter twice it formed stress cracks. After 2 years one of the dinner plates cracked clear through half of the plate. It's almost 5 years now since I received this china I thought I would have forever but I am down to 2 plates, the rest have either split or have stress cracks that look like shattered glass. The tea pot, bowls, creamer/sugar, cups and saucers and the small platter have, so far, remained fine though I'm very disappointed overall. Well made and taken care of china should last a long time. We used these plates normally and washed them in the dishwasher, which they were supposed to be safe for. No wonder they're being discontinued."

"I am a very picky person and searched a loong time for nice dinnerware that was not too expensive. When I saw the white pearl dinnerware, I knew I found it! It is the perfect classic bone china with a little twist of pearls. It is my all in one dinnerware because it's durable enough for everyday, and great for formal affairs. It makes each meal look better and feel more special! I can also mix and match the plates with other patterns for different looks and moods. I was devastated to see that it is being discontinued! I would like to be able to buy more and replace my dishes. Please do not discontinue!!!"

Love these !
"This was our wedding china, I am so sad to see it discontinued. I am stocking up in case of future accidents!"
"Hi White Pearl lovers! I registered for this dinnerware for my 02/23/2013 wedding even while it was under "discontinued" as I loved it so much and searched long and hard to find something better, but came up empty!! Crate & Barrel apparently only had a limited contract with the manufacturer to be the US supplier and it is in the works to find another retailer for it. Hope that helps! Get those pieces at a discount now while you can! :)"
Please reconsider your decision to discontinue this pattern. I have several china patterns, but this is the most versatile. We dress it up with vintage depression glass for special occasions. We dress it down with poIka dot place mats for every day. I registered for it 8 years ago, and purchase at least one new place setting a year as my extended family grows. I never thought it would still be available 8 years later, but I am so sorry to see it go."
"My husband and I have been using the white pearl dinnerware as our everyday set for two years now. We have been so impressed with how well the plates have held up to every day use -- we put them in the dishwasher every day, and they are still as beautiful as the day we got them. We continue to get compliments to this day on how elegant and clean this dinnerware is. When I found out a few weeks ago that this set was discontinued, I was really saddened. I went ahead and bought extras for all of our plates, and I bought some of the other items like the sugar and creamer. This dinnerware is such a great purchase -- buy as much of it as you can while it lasts!"
"I purchased 2 place settings online for my niece's bridal shower. They we packaged very securely and delivered quickly. The dinnerware is beautiful and very elegant . My niece was thrilled with her gift ."
"I can't even express how much I looooooooove the C&B bone china dinnerware. Turns out my mom IS always right! She advised to put on our wedding registry white bone china plates and I will never regret it. 5 years later, I am still as much in love with my plates as I am with my husband (well, almost, at least!)These plates have lasted so long and are so beautiful. They go with anything and can be fancy & formal, or casual."
"We have used this as our everyday china for over the last six years. And we love it. We've added more pieces over the years. Please do not discontinue such a great product. There is not another simple white, bone china pattern on the market that is under $150 a setting."
"I love this dinnerware set and am so sad to hear that it is going to be discontinued. I love the white color of the bone china...it makes food look more delicious. Now I just have to buy the rest of the pieces before they are sold out!"
"Seven years ago my husband and I switched our wedding registry from a high-end department store to Crate & Barrel because I didn't want any other china pattern.... as soon as I saw White Pearl, I knew it was the perfect pattern for us. It could be dressed-up for special occasions, but still be perfectly suitable (and durable!) for everyday. I've never been disappointed until I got on C&B's website to buy a few more pieces and saw that it was being discontinued! Crate & Barrel, please reconsider. There are obviously other women out there who don't want to have to start over with a new pattern based on the reviews, or have to start shopping at replacement-type outlets. Yuck."
"I have never seen such carefully packaged shipment. The china came without any problems. It is very pretty. The bone china material gives the china a formal elegant look but you can certainly dress it down to make it more casual, very versatile. I agree with all the other reviewers and hope CB will reverse the decision to discontinue this pattern."
"This is the best purchase I have ever made from Crate and Barrel, and I shop at C&B frequently. My husband I purchased these for ourselves when we got married, and got rid of all our other dishes and serveware.
These dishes are so versatile; I cannot say enough good things about them. They are simple yet elegant. We only have one pattern of dishes, the White Pearl dinnerware, and two patterns of silverware, one for daily use and one for special occasions. This saves money and storage space. The color makes it easy to purchase accent pieces, say a colored salad plate, to change up the look of the table setting, without having to buy a completely new set of dishes.
It's easy to clean, dishwasher safe, and very durable. Silverware does not leave marks on it as on some white dishes. The price point is also very reasonable for bone china.
I am so disappointed C&B is discontinuing this pattern later this month. I am hopeful they will reverse this decision as I believe this is one of their best and most popular china patterns. I personally know two other couples who own this as their dinnerware pattern. We have all stocked up on extra pieces in anticipation of it being discontinued."
