The tradition of women wearing watch chains as necklaces originated when soldiers departed home for the battlefields of WWI, leaving pocket watches and chains behind with their wives. Women would wear these talismans around their necks keeping them safe and close to the heart. Today the traditional purpose of the Albert chain may have changed but its 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.

Riffing off of the compelling fashion of translating textile technology and trimming into goldwork, this chain is a holy grail for the discerning collector. Inclusive of a fine Etruscan Revival tassel, this chain will be the first one out the door, we are certain.
