How durable are the pieces? Will they shatter if dropped or withstand the fall?
I was very pleased with the product. The price was excellent, it was shipped quickly and the pieces were exactly as described. It was very obvious (in a good way) that these were hand carved. None of the pieces were identical exactly giving it a unique and authentic feel. The marble board is beautiful, just smaller than I expected. The other thing that has me take away one star is that the felt on the bottom of the board was starting to come off slightly in one corner when we opened the box, I had to glue it. Regardless, great item and highly recommended...

Odette Sierra is from the beautiful Mexican state of Puebla. Her father Edgar Sierra first opened their workshop 30 years ago. Their town is renowned throughout Mexico for its carvings in onyx and marble. Submerged in this artistic heritage, the Sierras began crafting parquet tables in onyx and marble. The art of sculpting marble and onyx demands patience and virtue, both of which have been cultivated over time in the Sierra Family workshop.

I bought this for my husband's birthday and he absolutely loves it. It is exactly as pictured and the stone work is amazing. I especially love that there are variances between the pieces so you can tell they are carved by hand. None of the pieces arrived damaged, which I was worried about when I ordered it. We both love this chess set and it made a great gift.Read More
Very pleased with this item. It is very beautiful and will make a great addition to our living room. Love the board and hand carved pieces.Read More
It arrived in perfect condition. The board looked spectacular; however the black pieces were not as well polished well-they had a rough texture that did not watch the smooth white marble pieces. But for the price I got them at with the discount it is a steal! It will look great for the modern decor. Although since the board is small and pieces are made of marble I do not recommend it for serious chess players- if you are such you should stick to the wooden chess sets, but if you want something that can function as decor also this is perfect for any budget.Read More
