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.

3/11/2014 -"This was a wonderful find for me. I have been giving my grandchildren ornaments for their Xmas trees for years and this is a real find for me. I also have an ornament Easter egg tree that will love these ornaments as will my granddaughters."
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."

7/1/2014 -"I give personalized Christmas ornaments to each of our children and grandchildren. All of these have been ordered from OrnamentShop. I don't know exactly, but I would guess that I have been buying them for 10 to 15 years. I have NEVER been disappointed with their products or their service. Anonymous Elf"
8/4/2014 -"DEBBIE, they arrived!!!! The ornaments arrived safe and sound, who ever packs them needs a BIG Good Job! I am not sure what part of the OrnamentShop shopping I like the Best....spending hours looking at ALL the selections until I find I right one for each grandchild or opening the package when they arrived like today, so HAPPY with each and everyone of them. I have to say Debbie of course working with you is on the top of the list. It is too bad that the ornaments do not show their true colors and the quality of workmanship browsing online....the actual item is much superior! The detail of each ornament is over the TOP. Thank you so very much....it was Christmas in July at my house today, plus 4 days of course being August 4. Best Regards, Suzanna LaG."
12/24/2013 -"You guys did a great job on our ornaments! Thank you so much. Even my wonderful (sincerely) Jewish (really) husband loved his gifts. Thank you. He's starting to understand the degree to which Christmas is so special. Thank you! Betsy O."
10/7/2014 -"The ornaments I ordered were perfect! It's hard to find places that will personalize without a limited number of characters and my family has a lot of long and uncommon names. I will definitely order again and have already recommended your company to others. Can't wait to give these gifts to sweet dancers for their very last "Nutcracker" performance!! Rosemary D."
9/4/2014 -"Have purchased at Ornament Shop before and would gladly do so again! They were very quick to get my ornaments personalized as requested, shipped in a quite timely manner, with proper packing, and also tracking information was provided. The ornaments are beautiful! Thank you so much, Ornament Shop, for a job well done!! Jana B."
