Albert chains are named after a style of watch chain Prince Albert wore during the Victorian period. Traditionally this style of watch chain has a bar on one end used to afix the chain to a vest button hole. The opposite end of the chain is fitted with a swivel hook to attach the watch. The watch is then worn in a vest pocket with the chain exposed and often adorned with a decorative fob.

Unusual and very collectible, American, gold in quartz Albert Chain inspired as a souvenir of the 1849 Gold Rush. Notice the gold nugget fob!
