      I was quite satisfied with this set. I've often wanted an (affordable) carved stone chess set and this met that criteria. The board has a nice felt bottom and is also constructed of the same stone the pieces are made of. The chess pieces themselves are carved in classical styles, though the muted differences of contrast can make a game a little harder to visualize since it's more grey to black than white to black. The carving is of adequate quality - certainly good enough for the affordable price. I like it!

      I am so in love with this chess set. I've been wanting a chess set for ages and finally decided to buy myself one. I had some doubts because of the reviews-my doubts were totally unwarranted. The packaging was superb and the marble is so stunning. I keep it out in my living room on my coffee table just to have it in view.

      This chess set was a disappointment. The colors and pieces are difficult to distinguish. Some of the pieces are chipped or mishappen. This product was not up to par on the quality I expected when spending this much money on a chess set.

      Verified Purchase

      Upon opening this package, I was struck by the beauty of the chess board. It is truly something to be admired. The pieces, however, had chips and other flaws that go beyond the normal variations that you see with hand-made items. I was going to give this as a gift, but because of these defects I am returning it instead. That being said, if I had purchased it for myself, I probably would have kept it. However, I don't feel comfortable giving it to someone when there are so many obvious flaws with the pieces.
