The Albertina 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 and here is a very beautiful antique sterling silver Albertina dating from the 1880's with three rows of chain and will look so beautiful worn on the wrist, or attached to a chain to wear around the neck.
Attached with a tassel that has the fox tail links that move and sway so beautifully as well as having its tee bar, this is such a stylish piece of Victorian jewellery that is so versatile in how it can be worn.
Laid out from end to end it measures 26cm in length and as a bracelet will reduce to a comfortable 19cm when the swivel clip is attached to the link just before the tee bar.
With two belcher link chains on the outside and a twisted rope link in the middle, it also has its lovely slide which adds that extra charm and character that is really shows why these original antique Albertina bracelets are so much more unique and special than the modern charm bracelets that are being mass produced today.
This Albertina has so much charm and character and will always be loved and admired no matter how or where it is worn.
