Exquisite chess sets made from some of the finest materials are no longer just a piece of décor but a symbol of one’s status as well. Joining this league of status symbol chess sets are the limited edition master chess sets designed by Alexander Gelman. The stunning chess sets have been designed by the media artist in collaboration with traditional Japanese artisans. Truly exceptional, every piece is unique and made of lacquer, silver plating and gold leaf. What is more, these are the only five such sets in the world! Each piece is handmade using old century techniques and took more than 10 months to finish. The exclusivity and exquisiteness have made these chess sets extremely expensive with prices ranging up to $55,000.
