Gold And Silver Chess Sets
What's a Luxury Chess Set?
Gold and silver chess sets are the best of the best in the world of chess. They're the very definition of a luxury chess set. I bet very few people can honestly say they've had the pleasure of playing on a gold or silver chess set. If you're looking for gold and silver chess set you might be able to afford, you'll find them below. But before we get to that, I'd be remiss if I wrote about luxury chess sets without mentioning THE luxury chess set.
The Jewel Royale Chess Set (seen on the left) is made out of solid 18K gold and platinum and then encrusted with diamonds, emeralds, rubies, pearls and sapphires. The king alone has 73 rubies and 146 diamonds. The chess board is made of yellow and white gold with 16 diamonds set into each square. It's probably the finest chess set the world has ever seen. And at over 9 million dollars, it's definitely the most expensive chess set.
Gold And Silver Chess Sets For You - Your own luxury chess set
Well, now that you've seen the 9 million dollar chess set, these gold and silver chess sets won't seem so expensive. Just kidding. To be honest, I'm surprised at how affordable they are. I always thought a gold chess set would cost thousands of dollars, but here's one for only a few hundred.
Here's a crystal chess set that's plated in 24K gold and silver for only $350. You won't find a better deal than this!
The reason these gold and silver chess sets are so affordable is because they aren't made of solid gold. Instead, they're made of brass and then plated with silver and gold. Part of the reason these are plated is because solid gold would just cost too much. But a bigger reason is because a solid gold chess piece would be outrageously heavy. Since these chess men are made of brass and then plated in 24K gold and silver, they're able to be weighted perfectly.
