While thinking of a new name for our beautiful collection, we stumbled upon the idea of naming it after the Chess Grandmasters. You probably ask to yourself, why would we at HOTCROWN do that out of all our other options and possibilities? Well, to answer that question, it is very simple: The black and white contrast of these shiny diamonds reminded us of a game of chess. And what better way to celebrate #girlpower then to honor the legends that succeeded in entering this competitive game and transform it from a male-oriented environment to a completely gender free competition! Each piece is named after a powerful woman that changed the game of chess forever! So below, enjoy our beautiful collection paired with the beautiful women named after them. Check mate!
