Chess sets are not simply toys or games however they are large exquisitely designed sophisticated boards with great historic value. This gorgeous selection of individually crafted boards is our pearl inlay board variety.

This takes a lot of work from skilled artisans in order to get the chess board quality to its highest peak. When browsing for a chess board, you will see a lot of the traditional wooden maple boards however these are truly eye-catching and like no other. The actual mother of pearl is a very unique and valuable material also known as ‘Nacre’ produced by molluscs as an inner shell layer. The reason its given its name ‘Mother of pearl’ is because it is the same material that pearls are composed of and is widely known for its strong and resilient characteristics.

Not only is it great for its quality, but the genuine mother of pearl design is incredibly beautiful. These chess sets are not produced by many manufacturers and are difficult to shop for with UK sellers. We fortunately stock a fantastic range of mother of pearl chess in our online shop. The board size can also vary between 17 to 20″ and is paired with some gorgeous staunton chess pieces which contrast with the mother of pearl chess board and in turn make the entire set stand out in a stunning way.

Staunton Chess Pieces

Each of our staunton chess pieces are individually crafted by skilled craftsmen from India in Amritsar. The carving of a full set of staunton chessmen can take up to 3 months and the knight specifically of each set is the hardest piece to carve. The chessmen are made from solid blocks of wood and polished off after carving. A small weight is placed within the chessmen in order to create weighted chess pieces and the base of the piece is lined with green felt. This is done so that the pieces are stable and sturdy during the chess game, the weight will prevent the pieces from toppling over and allow for a very comfortable entertaining game.

Our mother of pearl chess sets come in a huge variety of different type of staunton chess styles. Some of our collections are more costly than others due to the difficulty they have in carving and taking much longer to actually craft. The king height of these pieces is 3.75″ in the tournament sets. We also have available chessmen of king height 3″ in some of our smaller staunton sets.
