    That would be about 47-50 thousand dollars for that set and from the photo it looks like a doll set ?

    I think this set is beautiful also.

    But is it just me or does it look like they switched the King and Queen?

    I think the jewelroyale chess set is beautiful! But unplayable.
    I agree with Suzianne, the queen must be the one with a queen crown, and the other crown looks more king-like.

    I question their so-called credentials. The set's gorgeous, though. A work of art and totally over the top, if it's genuine.

    It's too hideous for words ... like MJ. The pieces totally overpower the board and there's no style or balance.

    EDIT: What's the melt-down value?

    You're trying to use the word "style" in a Michael Jackson conversation? "Shame, shame, shame, Sergeant Carter!"

    Btw, the board/pieces are set up all wrong, assuming that the photo hasn't been inverted. And I agree with you about the meltdown value comment.
