Details

A grand Antique Victorian Albert chain from the late 19th Century made up of solid Sterling Silver curb links which have been gilded in a bright 18ct Yellow Gold. It’s complete with a T-Bar and an extension of chain at the bottom where a medallion may have been attached.

Albert chains were named after Prince Albert and were used by wealthy Victorian gentlemen to secure a pocket watch by attaching it via the T-bar to the buttonhole of a waistcoat. Today though, they have taken on a new function and commonly worn as a women’s statement necklace.
