Super chunky, heavy, solid and so, so lush and juicy.....
This solid sterling silver chunky Albert chain was used as a gentelman's watch chain when first made in Birmingham, England. It has lovely English Lion Passant marks on one side of each link. The dog clips and bar are marked with Birmingham stamps, dating these from between 1887-1901. This tells us that some of those elements have at some point been replaced - and they do match beautifully!
This gorgeous chain is now fashionably repurposed as a fantastic necklace worn by itself or with your pendants and charms. You can wear it hallmarks up or choose the smooth side to show for a different look. The chain is solid and super heavy at 94.9 grams and looks and feels ever so smooth and truly luxurious. The colour of the antique sterling silver is wonderful, as is the condition of this stunning necklace. The links are super wide too, graduating from a fantastic 10.91 mm down to 8.11 mm in width, with the max thickness of 4.51 mm. This chain is also a fab length - 18.25 inches, including the dog clasps. It looks gorgeous on its own while the mellow silver colour will look wonderful mixed with yellow or rose gold chains and pendants too ! This chain is so fantastically versatile - it can be worn with both antique as well as modern pendants, thanks to the edgy and contemporary design the Victorians were so famous for. All you need to do is experiment with different looks and enjoy !
We love ....... this weighty, luxurious chain necklace for its super elegant look. You could even wear an antique pocket watch suspended from it around your neck - which would look fab !! and be a nod to the original purpose of this beauty !
