Perfect for my Boy Scout who earned his Chess Merit Badge!
I've never seen a chess ornament before and it fit just perfect.
Finding a chess ornament is not as easy as others and this one is a winner. Nicely made and very cute!
There are not many chess ornaments to choose from. My son loved this!
This gift was well-received. The receiver tutors our son in chess, and this gift was perfect. He loved it!
Everything I ordered is great - I am very pleased.

Checkmate! This shield shaped ornament depicts the black and white squares of a chessboard and three chess pieces. The white chess pieces shown are the knight, king and bishop. Chess enthusiasts study the game and learn the methods of sacrificing pieces to attack and win the game that has been around since the 6th century. This game is popular all over the world and before the internet, people often played games by mail, posting one move at a time, anxiously waiting for the post office to deliver their opponent's position. Chess tournaments are still played even though computers have replaced the need for an opposing player, and a computer even beat a chess world champion in 1997!
Putting the year on an ornament nicely commemorates your special gift. If you want the year included, & there’s no box showing where we’d place it on the front of the ornament, use the drop down box and select the year. We’ll add it on the front if possible; otherwise we'll put it on the back
Price tags will be removed, gift will be wrapped with a hand-written card added. If it’s to be shipped to a separate address, we will ask you for it during checkout.
We personalize your ornament just the way you request, so please carefully review your information. Once your order is placed, we are unable to cancel, change personalization, combine orders or make exchanges.

12/26/2013 - "I just had to write to you to tell you how pleased we are with our Canoe Ornament. My husband and I canoed a river here in the back country of Maine this past summer that took us 5 days to complete. The trip was full of adventure and mishaps but we made it to the end and although we will never forget the trip...having the ornament is a wonderful reminder...as a matter of fact my husband said that the ornament is so nice that he would like to keep it displayed year round. I would also like to thank you for getting it to us for Christmas. I ordered it late not really expecting to have it for Christmas... It arrived in our mailbox on Christmas Eve! Wow!
Because of your excellent service and products you can be sure that we will be ordering from you again.

8/25/2014 - "I have purchased ornaments from Ornament Shop.com for 4 or 5 years. I have 6 grandchildren ranging in ages from 11 - 25 and have been purchasing Christmas ornaments since they were born. I look for ornaments that have something to do with their interests, or where they are in their lives at this particular time. i.e., college freshman,(college boy) aspiring music teacher (guitar), lover of horses (brown horse w/saddle), coach (lacrosse equipment), golfer/caddy(golf green) and stylish lady (lovely high heels).
I find the selections fantastic and better every year. I especially like the personalization that I have been able to place on each ornament. I hope my grand kids place these ornaments on their own Christmas trees someday and know each will bring back fond memories. Ann F."
12/24/2013 - "I order every year from you and am always pleased. This year, I waited to long. Didn't expect to receive before Christmas, and was pleasantly surprised to find my order in my mail box yesterday! Thank you for the work you do. I love the ornaments I received this year. I love them every year, but for some reason, I really like the ones I got this year.
Have a Merry Christmas!
10/6/2014 - "My ornaments arrived!. Wonderful quick delivery, and the ornaments are wonderful - even better than I expected. I know my grandchildren will be very pleased. Thank you so much. I order ornaments for each of my grandchildren every Christmas, and I will definitely be ordering from Ornament Shop again. Thanks again. Vernett J."
12/3/2013 - "Hello Diane,
I just wanted to take the opportunity to tell you how much I love ordering your Christmas ornaments. I have been sending them to all of my nieces and nephews ever since they have started their own families. I usually have to add a new family member to each ornament as the years pass. This is now a tradition for us and they look forward to receiving them every year.
10/19/2014 - "I have ordered ornaments for children and grandchildren and myself for the past several years and have been very pleased with every single one. There was an error in personalization one year and it was taken care of promptly and easily. My daughter has a 2 word first name and this is the first and only so far place that has always been able to personalize her ornaments without any problem. I will continue to order and recommend this business to anyone who is searching for personalized ornaments. The selection offered is varied and large. It does not take a very long time considering each ornament is personalized to get my order shipped to me. Katherine B."
8/25/2014 - "I give my family Christmas ornaments at the end of our big Thanksgiving Dinner. That gets our Christmas season started, as we hit the stores early on black Friday. I have ordered from Ornament Shop before and neither my family or I have never been disappointed. Good quality, and I always find what I want. Thanks. Jeanette R."
8/14/2014 - "This was a gift for my brother and his wife for their 40th wedding anniversary. They were just thrilled with the ornament. I did have some trouble with getting the site to allow me to put Ina shipping address. I contacted customer service by email and they quickly resolved the problem. I have been a customer for five years and I plan on continuing to purchase ornaments from OrnamentShop.com in the future. I love the Christmas in July sale! Rita S."
