The Sierra family:
The Sierras began crafting parquet tables in onyx and marble 30 years ago.

Their onyx and marble are mined in the Mexican states of Puebla and Oaxaca.

I bought this chess board for my boyfriend for his birthday, we are moving to a new place and I wanted a multipurpose board... one for looks as well as gaming. The board itself is gorgeous, it looks better than it does in the picture. The pieces are nice, but we found a few that are kind of dinged up.... I just say it gives them character. It did take me a rather long time to receive the product, my board shipped from Mexico so buy early if its for a gift. The board is heavy as well, which makes it more durable. The pieces have felt on the bottom to keep them from scratching the board, which is a plus. Overall I would say the only discouraging factor was the price, obviously I would have liked to pay a little less for it, but what can you do. Otherwise I would recommend to anyone that wants a board with looks.Read More
I bought this as a gift for my husband. I think it was a great purchase. It was delivered much quicker than I expected and was packaged extremely well. Each chess piece was wrapped separately and nothing was damaged. It is a very nice looking chess set. I also like that the pieces have some weight to them and they all have felt on the bottom to protect the board. My husband loved it and thought it was a really nice chess set. I think it was well worth the price.Read More
This chess set really is gorgeous. The pieces are sturdy with enough variation to show that they are hand carved, and the board is very heavy. The marble pieces are light coral and the onyx pieces are deep and matte. Every piece was intact and perfect, and individually wrapped. I would definitely repurchase as a gift.Read More
