Traditionally the Albertina, or leontine as it is also known as, was made to hold a ladies pocket watch on one end and attached to an outfit via the tee bar, however today these are more commonly worn as a bracelet and here is a very beautiful 9ct rose gold antique Albertina made in the 1890's. With the gorgeous rose gold that has such a wonderful tone to it, the links in this Albertina are just delightful to admire. With the end links different to the ones in the centre, the centre also has a gorgeous hand engraved section that adds to the charm and character. And then there is the very attractive tassel made of foxtail links which has such a lovely tactile feel and texture to it. It is a combination of the different links, the tassel as well as the centre engraved section that all add up to make such a wonderful piece of jewellery. Measuring 22.3cm from end to end, when worn as a bracelet it measures 21cm and can be adjusted smaller if needed. Antique Albertina's can also be attached to a chain to make a stunning necklace or joined to a second one to again make a necklace, making these not only versatile but also so very beautiful and special.

The Albertina - also known as a Leontine - was originally designed not as a bracelet but to hold a ladies pocket watch at one end and secure the tee bar onto an outfit, however today they are quite often worn as a bracelet and here is a very beautiful 9ct rose gold Albertina that dates from the 1890's and will look divine no matter where or how it is worn. Made with a double chain design, in the centre sits a gorgeous cube that has been exquisitely hand engraved and is connected by the two finials on each side that add that additional charm and character to the piece. On one end is a swivel clip that can attach to the round jump ring near the tee bar when worn as a bracelet, and the other end has the fabulous twisted tee bar and heart. Measuring 23cm from end to end, it also measures 19cm as a bracelet and another way to wear it is to attach a chain on each end to make it a necklace or connected to another Albertina making a spectacular necklace. This Albertina can be so versatile and is just so attractive to be admired no matter how it is worn. Stock# ES7283 Circa: 1890 $Sold.
