Victorian 9k Gold Watch Chain Necklace Double Albert

This chain was made to hold a watch. After all, pocket watches were a necessity for almost everyone in the Victorian era and beyond, but after World War II the wristwatch really started to come into it's own, it was more practical, more portable, and quickly eclipsed the pocket watch as the gentleman's time piece of choice. What then to do with all those unused and unwanted beautiful watch chains? Well, it didn't take the ladies very long to figure out that they made fantastic necklaces and bracelets, and we've been wearing them ever since! Indeed, there really is nothing quite so iconic as the gold watch chain, duplicated by top designers time and time again, this classic is a go-with-anything staple of any well-dressed woman's jewelry wardrobe. But, why buy a reproduced classic when you can re-cycle a hand made antique original as stunning as this one?

This wonderful and weighty yellow gold chain is hallmarked with marks showing that it was made in Birmingham, England in 1878 of 9 karat gold. The chain is 15.5 inches long with a T bar that floats over the links and could be worn at either the front or the back, it closes with two dog clasps. This gold chain measures 6.6 mm wide and the T bar is 1.5 inch long and drops .5 inches off the chain, it also bears a makers mark of ‘J.M.’, it weighs 54 grams.

This wonderful chain is all you need, really, wear it with everything from blue jeans to ball gowns and you sure to always look classy and stylish!
