The chess pieces and the chessboard in this set are crafted from over 1 kilogram of gold and set with 9,900 black and white diamonds, making this a stunning creation.

The International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA) announced today that this fabulous chess set, along with a heart shaped intense yellow diamond of 22.26 carats (valued at nearly half a million US dollars), a pair of old mine, pear-shaped emeralds weighing 56.46 carats (valued at approximately US$200,000) are among the luxurious items that will be auctioned at the upcoming ICA Congress in Dubai, which is taking place May 6-9.

The previewing of these items, as well as other items to be auctioned off in Dubai, are now on display at the Tzoffey's 1818 booth at BaselWorld in Hall 3.1, booth J60, where Tzoffey's 1818 and the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, a strategic initiative of the Dubai government created to establish a commodity marketplace in Dubai, will cooperate to promote this exclusive international auction.

Tzoffey's 1818, a European based auction-house that specializes in unique diamonds, rare gemstones and one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry, will hold the auction on May 9th, the final day of the ICA Congress in Dubai.

"Dubai's most important leaders from the trade, and people outside the trade, will attend this event," says Avner Sofiov, owner and president of Tzoffey's 1818 auction house. "We bring to Dubai, the "diamond city" born from the sands, some unique items that only the crème de la crème can appreciate and purchase" continued Sofiov.

"Action in Auction is our motto" concluded Sofiov. "We intend to leave a memorable and outstanding mark on the Dubai market, and turn this auction to a celebration of beauty, rareness and glamour".
