Excess is something we strive for here at PokerListings so when we heard about a diamond and jewel-encrusted poker chip set worth $7.3 million dollars one one word came to mind: obv!
This landmark accomplishment in completely impractical poker technology is the brainchild of London-based specialty game maker Geoffrey Parker.
Parker has been offering pimped out games ranging from Monopoly to backgammon for years but this poker chip set blows everything else he's done out of the water. Keep reading for the details.
Check out these stats:
- 384 18-karat white gold chips inlaid with stingray skin
- Set contains an estimated 22,364 stones, totaling 1,012 carats.
- Edges of chips are set with white diamonds for the white chips, sapphires for blue, rubies for red, emeralds for green and black diamonds for black
- The dealer button will be a larger white gold disc set with two rows of diamonds on the edge
- Set comes in genuine alligator-skin case so the product is not only fiscally irresponsible but also ecologically irresponsibile (a must for true ballers)
- The case comes with 18 karat white gold combination locks and hardware, and the case's suede lining features a gold and diamond frame
These sets must be custom-ordered and are estimated to take six to nine months to complete. That means you're going to have to act quickly to get these into the rotation at your weekly home game.
Considering the price tag is almost as much as winning the WSOP Main Event, we're thinking these aren't geared towards your average poker player.
And if you had them, would you really play with them? The fun of nice chips is being able to shuffle them, toss them around, rake big pots and so on. Not too sure how much you're going to want to throw around a chip worth like $20,000.
