Today the traditional purpose of the Albert chain may have changed but it’s timeless style and modern function as a statement necklace or addition to any collectors‘ chain family continue the evolution of the Albert chain into the 21st Century.
A sumptuous hand facet and hand stamped 13” watch chain of impressive 5.5mm diameter scale on each of the links, this gorgeous example has a very substantial 8mm dog clip (note that the clip itself has a flat bale, so only o-ring pendants of 3mm or larger will fit) and sizable 1.5” t-bar. One of the most compelling examples we’ve had yet!
