Luxury Chess Sets | Fine Chess Pieces

The Best Chess Sets available in the chess industry - from ChessBaron

The worlds finest chess pieces from ChessBaron. In listing luxury chess sets we look for such things as weighting, the material it’s made from, detail, and so on. Most fine sets of chess men such as these have extra Queens for pawn promotion, and are triple weighted (added weight in the base for on-board stability).

Materials used in the manufacture of luxury chess sets are ebony, bud rosewood (also known as redwood or budrose), padauk, maple, sheesham, acacia and some others.

Many of our luxurious chess sets have beautiful carved detail. Senior chess artisans work on the knights and oversee the manufacture of the other pieces in the set. Most of them need to have a chess board selected as an extra item.
