Antique 15.75 Inch Heavy 60.9 Grams Solid 15 K Gold Albert Watch Chain Necklace Dated Birmingham 1903 - image 1 of 15

How wonderfully weighty, chunky and simply fabulous is this Edwardian rose gold chain necklace ?
Made in Birmingham England in 1903 by a company called E Whitehouse & Son, it is fashioned out of solid 15 carat gold as large twist links and finished with two claw clasps and a large T-bar. It was made as a watch chain and worn by an Edwardian gentleman - hanging out of his waistcoat with the gold pocket watch ( at which he would peak through his eye glasses no doubt ). You know, the top hat on his head, fashionably sporting long sideburns and a dark long jacket. The times of pocket watches are long gone but we found a clever way to keep enjoying those elegant and stylish chains as gorgeous necklaces. We all should have one. They make a statement, they are unique and they let the world know that you are a fashionista who knows how to re-purpose an antique and give it a new and inspired life.
The chain is 15.75 inches long at the moment but has two spare links hanging at the centre and can so be extended to be 16.25 inches long. The long links measure 0.67 by 0.33 inches, the T-bar is 1.4 inches long. It weighs 60.9 grams. Fully hallmarked on each and every link, claw clasps and the T-bar with 15 /625 for 15 carat gold it has a date letter for Birmingham 1903 on one of the small links. It also has the makers mark EW&S on some of the parts. Fully original with no link replacements - brilliant! The necklace is in super condition too.

We love ........the fabulous look of this chain. The thought of an Edwardian gentleman raising his brows in surprise at our modern ways makes us smile.......
