Analogous with intelligence and sophistication, chess has obsessed the minds of royalty, military, the elite and the mundane for the past 1500 years. The silhouettes are timelessly recognizable - with centuries of romance and conquest soberly contained within the six iconic shapes. Wars - and sanity - have been won and lost on the black and white board.

Our handmade original Queen stands a little over 3/4 inch tall, cast in the highest quality sterling silver here in our New York City studio. He hangs from an oxidized sterling silver square chain which has been repolished for a gunmetal sheen. Three dimensional.

Depicting the "common man," at one point each pawn had it's own unique profession (Merchant, Farmer, Innkeeper) while in other instances they are all known more uniformly as foot soldiers. Throughout history, the Pawn has been rife with political commentary - he is not merely the indispensable laymen protecting the more important king, but rather the martyr who sacrifices himself for the greater good.

Arrives in a stylish RockLove gift box - multiple chain length options.
