This chess set is made of blue and grey squares that are slightly transparent, for a unique style that makes the game both elegant and mysterious.

The deep blue and natural grey pieces are easy to recognize, but carved with more graceful lines than many traditional chess sets.

Another luxury board that could easily be at home among the elite, this board looks like something straight out of The Great Gatsby, with its gold and darker brass pieces, and its framed board in similar gold and darker brass squares.

The polished metal pieces are stunning to look at, and lightweight for easy use. Each piece sits on a triangular base that mimics Art Deco style.
