jewel royale

Jewel Royale Chess Set by Boodles (Boodle & Dunthorne) is probably single the most expensive chess set ever made. It is made of gold and platinum and contains diamonds, emeralds, rubies, pearls and sapphires. The board’s surface is made of 16K white and 18K yellow gold. The yellow and white squares are supported by diamonds located in all four corners of each square. The hand-made King of 18K yellow gold weights 165.2 grams and contains 748 diamonds, 73 rubies, 146 sapphires and costs like good old 200,000$ Ferrari. The total price of the set is 9,800,000$.

This set is no doubt beautiful. The question is how practical is it? I don’t think the future
owner would allow anyone a quick blitz game on this set: what if the queen falls
on the floor and crashes? It is cheaper to crash a Mercedes.
