Sterling Silver Albert Fob Chain & Victorian antique sterling silver medallion

Sterling Silver Albert Fob Chain & Victorian antique sterling silver medallion

SKU: FOB-1897

A mixture of new and antique to create a statement necklace!


A sterling silver Albert chain I made with very chunky, heavy Italian sterling silver curb links, an albert clasp and a T-bar. worn as a necklace with the addition of an antique sterling silver medallion.


The detachable medallion is a large Victorian one, hallmarked Chester 1897 and the maker’s mark which is JA for James Adams.  It is approximately, 70 mm long from top jump ring in the Albert clasp to the bottom of the medallion.  A real piece of history!


The contemporary chain is aged to match the colour of the antique medallion and is hallmarked by London Assay Office with my maker’s mark PA.


The chain including the albert clasp is 18" (approximately 44/45 cm) and weighs in at a heavy 61.2 g.


The medallion has had a flash of yellow gold plating on the centre shield which means it can be worn with either other gold or silver jewellery.




Albert chains were popularised and named after Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s consort in the 19th Century and were traditionally worn by gentlemen to secure a pocket watch to the buttonhole of a waistcoat.


Today, they are also worn as stylish antique and vintage necklaces; a custom that was started by the wives of soldiers during the first world war who wore the chains as a keepsake.


This piece is now Astrid's but I have another two similar here coming later this week in my 'one of a kind' section.
