This quality Antique Albert Chain is modelled throughout in solid 18ct Yellow Gold featuring a bolt ring fastening, along with a T-bar drop.

An albert chain is a decorative chain, originally used to attach a pocket watch to the wearer's clothing. The chain was named after Prince Albert, who was said to have been fond of wearing watch chains. The Dog clip would have been used to attach the pocket watch too and the T-Bar would go through the button hole of a waistcoat to secure in place.

Today, these are often worn as necklaces, and the clips can be used to hang a pendant around the neck.

Due to the price of gold, few Albert chains in 18ct Gold remain; many have been melted down over the years. This rare and quality find would make a superb investment for the future.

CONDITION
This remarkable find remains in good antique condition. There is some wear in keeping with age, as this has obviously been a staple in someone's wardrobe; however, nothing affects the structure and security of the piece. The hallmarks can be easily read, and the links remain solid. The bolt ring is springy and secure, and a recent polish has brought this piece back to life!
