Albert chain

Definition of the noun Albert Chain

What does Albert Chain mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. A chain used to make easier access to a pocket watch in the watchpocket of a waistcoat. The Albert style went to a T-bar finding that tucked into a buttoned buttonhole of the 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 watchpockets, with the T-bar and pendant chain in the middle. With the passing of their use as a functional item, Albert chains are still used as jewelry, worn in any number of manners.
