I bought a nice set off ebay. The weight is casino style, and I bought a 7 color set with denomination on it. Most of my cards are actual casino cards that have been cycled out of use at the casinos, they are broken in and have a nice feel to them by the time they are distributed.
Something kind of like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1000-11-5g-C...item483f56ad3b
only with 7 colors, not 5. The higher denomination was purple and orange.
Depending how many people you plan to have over, this could be a nice set:
Although, you will have chips left over unless you want to start with a lot. I know you said high quality, but I have used mine for years now with no problems at all, and probably at about three times a month or so.
