I will admit, that I was skeptical because there was no reviews. But this is one of the best purchases I have made this year. The pieces have a nice weight and they are beautifully crafted. I was supposed to receive it by August, but arrived in less than a week. I will buy again from ROYALCHESSMALL.

Latvian Queen’s Gambit Chess Set

The quality of craftsmanship is superb, and the weight feels just right in your hand. However, one minor complaint is that the Black King’s top spire (which is white) has a couple of black spots. Otherwise, everyone is satisfactory!

Beautiful Chess Set

Elegant, slender design and a very nice weight to every piece. A beautifully crafted chess set with one spare queen of both colours. There is one minor flaw, being that one of the white queens has a slightly uneven base resulting in not standing as stable as the rest of the pieces.
