If you love edgy chunky Silver jewellery, this 16" antique Silver Albert chain will catch your eye. This Edwardian chain is complete with a 1 & 1/4" chain extender, so you can make this a longer length if you desire.
Each curb link is stamped with the Lion Passant for Sterling Silver, a hallmark of prestige, and one of the curb links is fully hallmarked with a rare Chester assay, dating this piece to 1912. Despite being of historic origins, the style and substance is incredibly timeless, giving you many styling options and many more decades of wear.

VERY GOOD: This 16" antique Silver Albert chain is in fantastic condition. As can be expected from an Edwardian era piece, there is some signs of minor wear. One of the original dog clips is a little stiff to open, so it just requires slightly more pressure, but the other dog clip is in great nick. The Silver also shows some light surface wear here and there, however we think this emphasises its punky allure.
