Albert or fob watch chains that they are also know as, were originally designed for a gentleman to hold a pocket watch at one end and the key to wind it at the other 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 quite often seen today and here we have a very lovely and equally as rare 15ct gold antique Albert chain.
15ct gold was only used for a bit over 70 years until 1931 and this one has such a beautiful warm rose colour to it that looks so beautiful whether worn around the neck or attached to a pocket watch and the design itself is equally as beautiful.
Quite often these 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 is a wonderful 51cm in length allowing it to sit perfectly around the neck.
The design of the likes are just so beautiful and have such a tactile feel to it when you hold it in your hand let alone around your neck and feels so comfortable to wear all the time.
This antique Albert chain has such a stunning design and combined with the rose gold all comes together so perfectly.
