Chess is a centuries old game. Chess pieces have evolved, both in shape and style over the centuries. Early chess pieces were often pieces of art, carved in marble, bone and ivory. Many modern chess pieces have lost this early attention to detail and style, and now are made of wood or plastic, or are simply digitally generated on an online chess app. With Kitco's handsome set of sterling silver chess pieces, we propose a return to a more elegant time, where the game of chess was played in style. Playing chess face to face requires patience and the luxury of time, and the beauty of these sterling silver chess pieces will only add to the experience.

As a gift for older children or grandchildren, this silver chess set may be just the encouragement your child or grandchild needs to play the game of chess more frequently, to enjoy the social aspect of a chess game and to appreciate the artistic beauty of these sterling silver chess pieces. Make a gift of this set at the retirement of a business colleague, or as an exceptional birthday present for the person who has everything.
