    Created exclusively for the British Museum: a handmade sterling silver necklace with a Lewis Chessman pendant.

    The design is based on the Lewis Chessmen - a famous set of chess pieces from the 11th-12th century in the British Museum. The chess pieces consist of elaborately worked walrus ivory and whales' teeth. This pendant depicts the seated king piece.

    The necklace has been created by Ortak - specialist jewellers based in the Orkney Islands, Scotland - using traditional silversmithing techniques. It forms part of an exclusive range based on masterpieces of the British Museum collections.

    Ideal as a gift.
