Pretty Chess Sets // Gift Idea Inspired by The Queen’s Gambit

acrylic chess set

If you’ve been watching The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix then you most certainly want to play chess or learn how to play chess or maybe even just look at a pretty chess set sitting as decor in your home or office… or is it just me?

I’m watching the show for the second time now because it’s incredible and I have no idea how to play chess and now I want to learn. But also, there are so many pretty chess sets, I wouldn’t mind seeing one sitting on a table somewhere in my office just looking pretty, begging me to come play.

The Queen's Gambit

So since I was already searching for pretty chess sets for myself (or maybe for a christmas gift – hint hint) I thought I’d share my favorites here with you as well just in case you’re in the market for a pretty chess set or want to give one as a gift.

There are tons of vintage chess sets available on etsy as well as handmade options in wood and marble and stone and I’ve included all the options from modern to classic styles that I’d love to be able to play on (in no particular order).
