Focus on Wealth

I've been reading that now is the time to cater your work to the wealthy, since they still have lots of money. Above is the work of Bernard Maquin of the Charles Hollander Collection who designed and created chess sets out of gold and diamonds! It was made with over 9,900 black and white diamonds, over 1168 grams of 14 carat white gold, and it took 30 artisans over 4500 hours to make this piece. I believe it sold for a million. The photo above is an in process shot, go check out the finished chess board.
