Directors Notes

The Albert chain is said to have been named after Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s consort who was said to be particularly partial to this style of watch chain. The T-bar would have been worn attached through the buttonhole of the waistcoat. Today this style can be seen often worn as a necklace, it is incredibly popular and many would consider an essential for any jewellery box. Finding an antique Albert chain in 18ct gold is more unusual and this example has a lovely weight and is in excellent condition showcasing beautiful Victorian craftmanship with hallmarks on all links.
