What exactly is classed as a Luxury Chess Set and what defines it as such? 

The materials used to make a luxury chess set is a major factor in determining the retail price value. In a wooden chess set, the knights, for example, are completely hand-carved therefore must be considered as a price tag factor, as, in most chess sets, the knights are usually the most intricate chess pieces and take the artisans almost a day to complete 4 knight pieces that make up a complete chess set. Therefore Materials, Labour, and time are what determine a luxury chess set.

Luxury can be determined by scarcity also, for example, is the chess set a limited edition? If so, how many are included in the limited edition collection? Are the luxury chess pieces a unique design, do any other vendors sell the same chess pieces? Is a certificate supplied and or a nice presentation case? Perhaps the luxury chess set is destined to adorn the office of a CEO or director of a major company, or indeed perhaps a birthday or wedding gift. There are so many aspects to consider before purchasing a luxury set. Our promise is that buying a luxury set from Official Staunton guarantees the criteria are met above and beyond that of our competitors. 

When people think of buying an affordable chess set, they probably picture a few wooden pieces and a board that has some kind of air of elegance. In this article, we will look at why this is so and why good quality chess sets are so affordable.

The beauty of hand carved chess pieces is evident in the beauty of wooden chess sets. The types of wood used can affect the design, as well as the history of the piece. You can find intricate work done by the best craftsmen in the business. These pieces can be as old as the kings and queens who played chess on them.

 

TRADITIONAL CHESS PIECES

While traditional chess pieces are certainly timeless, most companies are looking at your individual taste when they make their decisions. There are many options available. There are different coloured pieces available as well. They can also come in a variety of sizes. Wooden chess sets are a classic that can be handed down from generation to generation. The wood used for these pieces is carefully chosen to fit the needs of the pieces. You can find pieces that have been used in past tournaments and ones that were hand carved by craftsmen.

First, when you consider affordable chess sets, it is very important to understand the value.  As previously discussed, value is the price that the consumer is willing to pay for something. For example, when you buy a good quality car, you are looking for good value. The same applies to the chess set. The main reason why people go with cheaper sets over more expensive ones is due to their affordability.


Luxurious Chess Sets and Boards

It has been said that the elegance and magnificence of luxury chess sets and boards are like nothing you have ever seen. They are quite literally among the most admired in the world. These pieces really make your game more appealing and impressive. They give your game a new dimension and they definitely add a new feel to your game.
