Each double fetter link on our 18” chunky Victorian albert chain is connected to 3 love knot links with the pattern repeats eight times. The T-bar and dog clips are stamped 9 carat. Alberts are named for Prince Albert who popularized the wearing of a vest with pocket watch and a fob on a chain, the watch in the vest pocket, with fob and T-Bar dangling. Our chain combines the fetter link and love knot link. Longer links like the fetter link were used to cut down on the laborious process of making and assembling many smaller links. We love the double fetter link and triple love knot combination which continues the pattern to the top of the chain with two matching dog clips, which serve as clasps for easily connection and removal. We also love the beefiness of the double fetter links and the love knots as compared to the slim links of most albert chains. The 18" relatively long length of an Albert is an asset too. The final image shows how our chunky Albert looks next to our 15 carat chain (also listed on First Dibs) as well as next to our other 9 carat Albert with a more slender fetter and love knot link Albert. All three are available here. Listing numbers are as shown. This chain is the bottom chain in our photo. This chain weighs 26 grams.
