A lovely sterling silver handmade bracelet in the style of an Antique Albertina chain, this time with an Irish theme.
The Albertina is the ladies version of the Albert Watch chain. It is smaller and more decorative than an Albert and mainly worn by Ladies during the Victorian era. Often they are altered and are worn today as beautiful antique bracelets.
This is my take on the Albertina using SWALK seals from my collection to personalise it and give it special meaning.
This bracelet is not restricted to these two seals and I can customise it with any two seals of your choosing..... (mostly the price will be the same, but please contact me for a quote)
The seals I have chosen here are:
The larger seal with a lovely detailed shamrock. This seal dates to the 1920's.
The other seal is a 'Erin go bragh ' with a shamrock too. this dates to the 1800's
The gemstone is a vesuvianite to compliment the colour of the shamrock
(Belcher chains were named after James Belcher or 'Jem' Belcher (15 April 1781 – 30 July 1811) who was an English bare-knuckle prize-fighter and Champion of All England 1800-1805.)
The bracelet has a larger belcher chain to act as an extender.
The extender ends with a 'SWALK' seal charm.
Every element is sterling silver and it is soldered at every link.
The standard size for this bracelet is from 19cm to 23cm (extendable) 7.4" to 9"
If you require a larger or smaller size I am happy to accommodate you.... please just ask :-)
This bracelet will arrive wrapped in purple tissue in a Linen 'SWALK' draw string bag and with explanation cards to explain the meanings of the seals.
