9ct Yellow Gold heavy Albert chain, originally named for Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria. The Albert chain is used to give easier access to a pocket watch in the pocket of a waistcoat. The Albert style went to a t-bar that tucked into a button hole of a waistcoat. From there a further small length of chain hung, to which the wearer attached decorative charms such as fraternity or lodge symbols. The double Albert was a chain draped between both watch pockets, with the T-bar and pendant chain in the middle.
