Geoffrey Parker, London-based maker of the finest games on the globe, is offering the world's most expensive poker set for $7.5 million.
The bespoke set for the ultimate high stakes game comes housed in a genuine alligator skin case finished in the color of the client's choice, fitted with 18 karat white gold combination locks and hardware. The case' suede lining features an 18 karat gold and diamond frame to hold 384-18 karat white gold chips, each inlaid on both sides in shagreen (stingray skin) embossed with its value, which can be in any currency and denomination the client desires.
The edge of each chip is set with precious stones – white diamonds for the white chips, sapphires for the blue, rubies for the red, emeralds for the green and black diamonds for the black. The dealer button will be a larger 18 karat white gold "chip" set with two rows of diamonds to the edge.
The set will feature an estimated 22,364 stones in all, totaling 1,012 carats. Finally there are four platinum-plated decks of poker cards. Orders are now being taken with an expected delivery time of six to nine months. Of course with so many precious stones and metal the price of the set may go up if the market fluctuates.
