Mother of Pearl Chess Set
We are continually adding more and more luxury chess sets to our premium range category. This is one of the few latest categories where we are looking to improve the chess set. This particular category belongs to hand carved chess set including staunton and metal chess pieces on middle eastern chess boards. These chess boards have been brought in to match our range of staunton chess pieces to ensure we do not have a small chess board or too large chess pieces. These boards in particular have a organic-inorganic inlay commonly referred to as mother of pearl. This particular piece of the board shines and almost has glow when tilted or under different lighting and is most often embedded with luxury products. This part of the chess boar dis completely carved and scored by skilled artisans in the middle east, each board takes upwards of 6 weeks to manufacture. Our mother of pearl sets include wonderfully carved staunton chess pieces.

Wood indeed tends to be the most common material used when it comes to luxury chess sets, both with the chess board and the chessmen with each set. The type of wood used depends on the type of board in mind of design. Commonly chess boards can be veneered or solid wood, in this particular selection out chess boards are similar to that of antique chess sets based on the board design and use solid walnut, rosewood and ebony wood. These types are commonly used when manufacturing chess boards, however common wood used is boxwood and sheesham as well as rosewood for chess pieces, due to it’s characteristics of durability and the ability they have to enable the detail of craftsmanship. We at Chessgammon have ensured that we select the best types of wood to carve our luxury chess set, weather it be economy or luxury.
