If you’re a chess lover or are simply looking for something extra this festive season, spend your chips on this uber-luxe Sterling Silver and 24k Gold Vermeil Chess Set by Tiffany & Co. Extravagant to the nth degree, the offering spells sheer luxury and is not by far the board you’d like your kids practicing the game on! The chess set comes at a bank-breaking price of $75,000 and is every bit gorgeous (and unaffordable) if you may ask!
Part of the brand’s Everyday Objects collection, the Vermeil Chess Set (as it is called) boasts sterling silver and 24k gold vermeil board and chess pieces housed inside a matching sterling silver box lined in gray felt with a satin finish bottom. The exquisite board measures 12 X 12” and contains exotic accentuations in solid wood. It is meticulously crafted by Tiffany’s master craftsmen (at the very iconic Tiffany hollowware workshop in United States) who took over a year to bring the set to finish.
Tiffany’s Novel Vermeil Chess set is an example of how inspiration can be found in everyday objects, only if one has the eye for it. Enthused by the corrugated profile of cardboard, the exclusive set elevates the art in the ordinary and brings the game of chess to a whole new level! Other apparently everyday pieces in the collection include a $1000 Tin Can, a $800 First Aid Box and a set of two Bone China Paper Cups for $95. Talk about everyday opulence!
