About Turquoise Mountain

Alexandra first worked with the Turquoise Mountain Foundation in Afghanistan in 2010, when she visited Kabul and saw first-hand the rich heritage of craftsmanship in Afghanistan that Turquoise Mountain is working to protect. Today, she calls upon the skills of the team at Aquamarine Gem Cutting in Kabul to carve the Afghan stones for her semi-precious playing piece sets.


Our semi-precious stone playing pieces are a sumptuous addition to Alexandra’s full-size backgammon boards or a beautiful gift for any backgammon player. We individually source our semi-precious stones according to their innate patterns, unique textures and shimmering iridescence.


The individual playing pieces can be laser engraved with everything from the recipient’s initials to a private handwritten message.


Backgammon board box lids and Stone Playing Pieces can be personalised with laser-engraved initials, dates, or even a short message. You can request engraving during the online checkout process.
