Stone Chess – Italian Alabaster Chess Sets

Our beautiful, specially designed Alabaster Chess sets are crafted in Italy from the finest quality, natural Italian alabaster.

Each Stone Chess piece is highly polished for a wonderful glossy finish and is finished with a Purling London luxury Italian nappa leather felt, branded in 18 carat gold. Purling Alabaster Chess pieces stand out as having far more defined shape and greater detail than any other set.

The satisfyingly weighty, solid alabaster chess boards are sleek, smooth and are polished to a mirror-like shine. Similar to marble, alabaster is a characterful material, with beautiful natural veining. Therefore, each piece and square on the chess board is unique!

Each set includes four queens for effortless pawn promotion. Presented with a Purling London certificate and elegant packaging, each Stone Chess set is a true gem.
