Albert chains, or T-Bar chains, are named after a style of watch chain Prince Albert wore during the Victorian period. Traditionally this style of watch chain has a bar on one end used to affix the chain to a vest buttonhole (the "T-bar"). The opposite end of the chain is fitted with a swivel hook to attach the watch. The watch is then worn in a vest pocket with the chain exposed and often adorned with a decorative fob, or even as a necklace nowadays!

The Edwardian era, known for its classy and feminine take on jewelry, brought about this gorgeous example! An Edwardian pink gold watch chain with open Cuban links - just stunning!
