Here is a very elegant and stylish antique sterling silver fancy fetter link Albert chain made in 1909 that would be perfect to hold a pocket watch or around the neck of a lady. These Albert chains or fob watch chains as they are also know as, were originally designed for a gentleman to hold a pocket watch at one end and the key or a fob at the other end, with the tee bar connected to the waistcoat. Years later when men stopped using pocket watches and started to wear wrist watches, women years later started to wear these around their neck where they are often seen today. Quite often Albert chains are seen as half Alberts that only have one half of the chain, or they are double but simply too short to wear around the neck, but this one measures 44.7cm length allowing it to sit perfectly around the neck. Made in sterling silver with each link hallmarked, it is made in a fancy fetter link design with a rope twist between each link. This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful links to find and no matter how it is worn, it will no doubt always be admired for its beauty. This lovely antique Albert chain from the Edwardian era is just so beautiful and in all original condition that looks as beautiful today as when it was made over 100 years ago.

Here is a very beautiful and elegant antique heart shaped pendant set with a tourmaline and rose cut diamonds that will always be loved and cherished and continually admired. Hand made in the Victorian period of the 1880's, this pendant was made in 15ct gold and sterling silver.

Today white gold, platinum or rhodium plating is often used , however before the 1900's white gold and rhodium plating was not yet invented, and platinum, although already discovered, was not used in jewellery making. The tourmaline in the centre has such a beautiful pink-red colour to it, and measures 0.28 carats. Surrounded by a total of twenty three rose cut diamonds, these diamonds total 0.18 carats and have all the charm and character of being genuine antique cut diamonds. Measuring 13.2mm across by 13.5mm or 20mm to the top of the bail, this antique pendant is one that will always look good day or night and is destined to be admired every time that it is worn.

Originally used when one wanting to "seal" an envelope to prevent anyone else opening or tampering with it, the use of a seal goes as far back as Roman times, and here is a lovely antique 9ct rose gold bloodstone seal made in 1901. Seals now look wonderful when worn on a necklace or an Albert/fob chain around the neck or attached to a bracelet, and of course also make a perfect desk accessory with the bloodstone base still able to be engraved with a family crest, intaglio or initials. More often than not, these antique seals were gold lined/filled, so it is nice to get one that is solid gold, and this one bears not only the gold carat stamp, but also the date and county hallmarks for being made in Chester in 1901. Measuring 28.8mm high, the base measures 21.2mm by 18.6mm and is set with bloodstone which has a green colour with red flecks and left as is or engraved always looks great. This antique seal is in wonderful condition and no matter where or how it is worn or used, this will always be admired. Stock# ES7692 Hallmarked: Chester 1901 $Sold
Here is an absolutely gorgeous antique yellow gold double sided REGARD photo locket, that dates from the 1870's and still retains its original photos inside. "Regard" jewellery is often where the first letter of each gemstone "spells" out the word Regard, however with this locket the word "Regard" is spelt out in such a wonderful font along the edge of the locket. The font is so beautiful to admire and then there is also both sides of the locket which are exquisitely hand engraved. Made in 9ct yellow gold, the detail in the engraving is wonderful and so much finer than machine engraved or just stamped out in huge numbers. The locket measures 21.4mm in diameter and the photo sections 15.5mm in diameter. Complete with its original photographs, they really add so much charm and character. While these photographs can easily be taken out and replaced, we thought it best to keep them and let the new owner decide to remove the photos, put their new photos over the top, or simply leave them in place. With the wonderful hand engraving on the outside making this alone such a gorgeous piece to wear around your neck, to the lovely photos inside and of course the word "Regard" on the rim, this is such a beautiful and unique antique locket that is a real treasure.

With the tee bar suspended at the bottom, this section can also be used to attach a spinner or locket to add to the charm and character.
