If you are looking for an elite chess set that could tempt anyone to plan a move and have loads to spend on your pastimes, check out the Gold Chess Set (No.1 of 12) Circa 1972 made by J Grahl Design from Balboa Island, CA for the Cole family back in 1972. Weighing in at 11.5 lb, the 14th century themed custom 14k gold chess set enjoys a cross section of western European attire and eye-catching superfluities. While the top of the chess set is made from Gaboon ebony and sterling silver, the casing is done with Cherry wood on a cast iron and yellow bronze detailed framework.
Made to perfection with every single detail done to liven up the pleasure of the game, the gold chess set is set no. 1 of a series of 12, which ended in 2008. The pictured above gold chess set is currently with the Gemological institute of America. If you want one like this, the custom, conversational work of art could cost you between $450,000 and $700,000.
