The smallest chess set in the world is not in black and white but in gold and silver

You might lose a game of chess but you definitely do not want to lose any of these pieces. Made in 18kt yellow gold and pure silver, each piece is intricately carved by hand. Designed by jeweler Sal Knight this is the smallest chess set in the world to be made in gold and silver. It is barely bigger than a quarter! The chess board is checkered in blue and white enamel with ornamental silver designs on the sides.
