Luxury Chess Sets

By | November 1, 2017

There no better way to show your appreciation for that chess player in your life than to get them a beautiful luxury chess set. These luxury games are just the thing for that player who would like to enjoy his or her favorite game in a whole new light. Chess lovers both young and old will certainly applaud the gesture, because these sets are a sight to behold. What makes these sets so special? Well, let’s take a look at some of the options you have available to you when choosing one of these lovely sets and find out for ourselves.

Perhaps the most intriguing thing about choosing a luxury set is just the sheer number of materials that you can choose from. One of the materials that you may want to consider is marble. Marble sets have a very polished and stylish look to them, and gazing at the swirl of the colors in the marble can be mesmerizing. Another type of material that you may choose is alabaster. Alabaster also looks just as nice as the marble finish and has a beautiful shine when the light hits it also. Glass is a very clean and beautiful material to use as well, and the different shades of the glass that is used provides a very different look. All of these are excellent choices for materials for chess sets, and they all offer a different spin on the standard game of chess that players are accustomed to.

Luxury chess sets can also come in different varieties of metals such as brass and steel. Besides all of the different materials that may be involved, there are other things that can factor into making these sets stand out from the rest. The shapes and sizes of the pieces can also be very unique. If you are looking for a certain theme for your chess experience, you may very well be able to find it. Different themes ranging from movies, television shows, and even real life battle scenes can be incorporated into these very unique sets. Whichever type of theme you are looking for, odds are there is one that will perfectly suit you or that special chess player in your life.

Staunton luxury chess sets make the ideal gift for the chess fan!

    This chess set is exactly what I was looking for as I would like to begin a long distance chess relationship with my 6 year old grandson as he lives in California and I reside in Minnesota.
    I am sending him the set since it is such a great beginner set and hopefully he will not only like having his own chess set, he will also fall in love with the game of chess!
    Since my grandson is obviously just learning the game, I wanted a set that was easy to use, not plastic or cheap looking! I am not a fan of online shopping so I am ALWAYS a little apprehensive when ordering something from a picture but I was so pleased when I opened the box and it was exactly what I hoped it would be!
    I even love the outside box it comes in–so classy!!
    As a side note, I would also like to mention that the customer service is exceptional! I received an e-mail from an actual person–not a robot!–to make sure I was satisfied with their product and they even included a chess manual to download!
    How wonderful!!

    While the quality and the price of the board was acceptable when I received it I noticed a few things that really made it apparent to me that there was minimal thought put into this Chess set.

    The first was that is does not sit flat at all. The problem is that the hinge in the middle gets in the way so the ends of the board sort of sag and cause the pieces to want to move slightly.

    Second, was the game play area, it’s misaligned. For some folks that might not be a problem. For me however, it’s quite annoying. In the middle where the two halves should meet up nice and square they are off by a good 1/8th inch if not a little more.

    Finally, there is a large chunk of the edge of the top of game board missing, kind of like they dropped it during manufacture or splintered the wood but it’s all filled in with stain and filler looks really crappy.

    It’s a chess board…so I kept it, but honestly I wish I would have spent my money on a nicer board. Just wanted to let anyone here know what they may receive when purchasing this.

    Not a bad set for the price., July 15, 2017

    Not a bad set for the price. I would like to have the board a little bit more solid. It seems to be too thin and could be broken if not careful. Also, the wood was slightly rough in spots and needs to be sanded a little or maybe a sealer put on it. All in all it’s a nice set that I will be giving to my son in law in a couple of months. I suppose if they did all of that to it then the price would not have been as low as it was. On the plus side the seller sent an email stating that if we lost any pieces to contact them and they would be happy to replace it so that was a nice benefit that I have never seen before from a merchant.
