I purchased this as a gift for my husband because he loves to play backgammon and has been looking for a travel size set for traveling. I thought this would be perfect, but I was wrong. I am sending it back because it is not fuctional to actually play with. The wood in not treated and rough...could easily get a splinter from touching the board and pieces. The pieces are also tiny and do not have magnets or any other means of securing the tiny pieces on the tiny board. So dissapointed!! :(Read More
The little game set is very small which makes it a great travel companion. The stones are also very small which makes it a little hard to pick them up and move them but it also makes it cute and fun to play with. We have already taken it on a long trip and played on the plane and at the airport.Read More
Questions & Answers
How to Care for Amber Jewelry
Amber is an attractive but delicate ornament. Popular for its deep golden color and natural patterns, amber decorates both antique and modern jewelry, from beaded necklaces to rings and earrings. Handmade amber jewelry from places like Poland, Thailand and India lends an eclectic look to any outfit. This jewelry requires special care, as amber is soft and can be easily damaged by even mild chemicals. If exposed to sudden changes in temperature, amber can crack or even break. For these reasons, care should be taken to protect amber jewelry when wearing, cleaning and storing it. With proper care, your beautiful jewelry will last a lifetime.
