    • Lovely marble and onyx board
      Verified Purchase

      This white marble and black onyx set is quite nice. The carving in the black pieces is gorgeous, but the white pieces are a bit marred by the white marble color irregularities which can look like repaired fractures. I presume that they are just variegation in the marble, however. The chess board itself is very lovely - the white and black are very glossy and smooth. I haven’t actually given it to my spouse so the pieces have not yet been played with, but I think that the markings, while not completely traditional for bishops in particular, will be adequate to allow for stimulating games with beautiful stone pieces.

    • Nice
      Verified Purchase

      The set is nice. The board is heavy and made of stone - no wood in the board. The white pieces are Onyx. The site says the black pieces are Marble, but I am not sure. They are made of heavy material. Felt on the bottom of pieces and board is low quality, may need to switch out. Chess Set approved by 16 yr old boy.

    • One of the nicest looking chess sets I've seen.
      Verified Purchase

      The board is a good size, as are the pieces, it makes a fine display and board to play with. The unique stones for each of the pieces make it a lasting set.

      This is a lovely set to look at and hold. Each piece is individually wrapped and it is extremely well packaged. It is heavy and beautiful, we love it and have played many games. A beautiful set.

    • Not true
      Verified Purchase

      I assure you that this is not onyx. Unless I misread the details, the black pieces are all made of some kind of hard plastic with a little weight. I was very disappointed.

    • Beautiful and Substantial
      Verified Purchase

      This is a very beautiful and substantial (in terms of weight, for the board is quite heavy) chess set. I love the frosted-marbeling effect on the white chess pieces. I purchased as a gift for my husband and he really loves it, unlike his previous (cheaper wooden set), this one is meant to be displayed for it is quite aesthetically pleasing.

    • Very Disappointed.
      Verified Purchase

      I was really excited to get this chess set based on the description and pictures. I received the chess set today and it definitely doesn't look as nice as the photos portray. The chess board looks like its cracked with gloss over it. The black squares look like they were painted on and not evenly. The chess pieces themselves are the worst part. Very poorly crafted. The cross on top of the kings are wiggly and easily could come off. The pieces are very misshaped and poorly carved. I have never written a bad review, but this was pretty bad. There are so many good reviews on here.. so maybe I just got unlucky with a bad set? Either way, not happy. Returning is almost a mute point, since you have to pay for shipping and the board is very heavy, so I can only imagine that the cost to return is not going to be cheap. I guess that's what you get when you purchase online.
