It’s the ultimate prize for the ultimate game player. The Royal diamond chess set took 30 craftsmen more than 4500 hours to create. It is set with 9000 black and white diamonds and is made of white gold.
The set was designed by designer Bernard Maquin who also created a $1.2 million backgammon set and a diamond roulette wheel. The set is on eBay for $500,000. Just don’t let your opponent “accidentally” slip a pawn or two into his pocket.
