During the Victorian era, men had the Albert chain to attach their pocket watch to, and the ladies had these lovely feminine Albertina's to wear with their pocket watches with the pocket watch at one end and attached to an outfit at the other, however today these are more commonly worn as a bracelet where they look so elegant sitting beautifully on the wrist, or when joined with another, make a fantastic necklace.
This one was made during the late-Victorian period of the 1890's in sterling silver and has the most wonderful fancy links running the length of the with a swivel at one end, the tee bar that has a lovely twisted design and the gorgeous foxtail link tassel that has such a wonderful tactile feel to touch.
Laid out from end to end this measures 23.5cm and when the swivel is attached to wear as a bracelet at the end of the chains, this measures 17cm. Once it is worn as a bracelet, it has such an feminine look to it with both the tee bar and tassel hanging so elegantly.
Destined to always be admired, this ladies antique Albertina will always feel so special no matter how it is worn.
