While the origins of the game of chess date back to the 12th century, it was popularized and widespread many years later during the 18th & 19th centuries. Chess clubs, publications, and even international tournaments were established during the Victorian Era. By then, the epicenter of chess playing had moved to France, coinciding with a booming French jewelry industry. 

The Knight’s Horse Pendant was crafted during the Victorian Era and was likely inspired by one of the era’s new favorite pastime- the game of chess. A strong protective symbol, the knight is stoic, strategic, and honorable. We admire this unique piece because it feels like a small glimpse into the life of someone who loved the game, so long ago. 

This antique pendant is made of hollow 14k gold making it lightweight and easy to wear and is found in pristine condition.
