The Perl Royale – the Most Expensive Chess Set in the World

Australian artist and goldsmith Colin Burn considers that two-player strategy board game played by millions of people worldwide deserves luxury uniforms, in his case world’s most expensive. So, he created unique chess set called the Pearl Royale and put it up for sale for $4 million.

This chess set will be limited to only three sets, each hallmarked, numbered, and authenticated by Colin Burn himself.

Creating an entire chess set out of precious metal and jewels surely was not an easy task. The manufacturing procedure was tremendously challenging owing to the untiring attention to detail, while flawlessly covering the pieces with beautiful stones gathered from all around the world.

Each of the 32 chess pieces is crafted out of 18 carats of white gold and is embellished with a coat of the highest-grade diamonds. The royal blue sapphires and black/white South Sea pearls are used to color each piece, hence inspiring the name of the set.

The bottom of each piece is meticulously designed and features the same quality fine diamonds. The underside of the pieces is finished with smooth polished edges to slide smoothly across the crystal glass diamond chess board.

The most expensive chess set was only exhibited once last year in an art gallery in Beverly Hills, California, owing to its extreme beauty and splendor. The most expensive chess set in the world created out of pure perfection is priced at $4 million and comes with all the diamond and gem certification required.
