Victor F. Scharstein has given shape to his dream of 30 years in the form of this bejeweled Art Of War which is a truly stunning piece of beauty, like none you have seen before.

This one-of-a-kind set features rhodium and gold chess pieces that move over a jeweled ebony board. To raise the bar of luxury, the designer has ornamented every piece with precious rocks like diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires.

The board stands on two yellow gold feet encrusted with diamonds and two white gold feet with rubies. Even the “Art Of War” words on the Chinese version on the board are etched out of 14 carat gold. The case that is supposed to house this uber-exclusive chess set is pimped with gold samurai characters and stands on 8 solid gold balls.

The estimated cost to create this luxury chess set is $50,000 but if you are interested, you will have to contact the maker, as the price will be disclosed only on request.
