For generations, the very best Master carvers in India made luxurious decoration chess sets and other products in Ivory. This changed after the CITES Agreement enforced controls on the harvesting and trade of elephant tusks and the resulting export controls of related products with ivory content. These highly talented artisans maintained their livlihoods by switching to bone and exotic woods. At TheChessPiece we have more bone sets available than any other retailer in both traditional and unique, modern vibrant colors.

A good place to start when selecting a Staunton chess set is to know what is meant by a Staunton chess set. Staunton is a pattern or style of set, (like SUV is a style of motor vehicle) it is not a manufacturer. When deciding on a luxury chess set, look at the detail in the knight. We have written a detailed article about what to look for in a Staunton chess set with particular emphasis on the chess set knights which we hope may give you a better insight into selecting the best quality set.
