Albertina jewellery is a term used to refer to an enduring Victorian style featuring elaborate balls, hearts, fobs and wonderful tassels interspersed along fabulous chains.

This distinctive Albertina is the elaborate version of the Albert chain used for fobs and watches. Albert chains were named after Queen Victoria’s husband.  Albertina chains were usually much prettier with decorative features and were worn as jewellery rather than as functional items. Both Albert and Albertina chains were made out of gold, or silver or gold and silver.

In the First World War, soldiers often left their fob chains with sweethearts to be worn as jewellery for safekeeping and as a symbol of their devotion. As the fob watch era drew to an end, the chains moved firmly into the realm of jewellery as bracelets or necklaces often adorned with trinkets or charms.
