Antique Australian 15ct Yellow Gold Double Albert Watch Chain Necklace By George J. Jackson (1895-1931)






DESCRIPTION (Please scroll to the bottom to view video)
   

Superb and all original  chain by one of our early Australian jewellers - George J. Jackson 1895-1931.


Crafted from 15ct yellow gold of the most beautiful lush and bright hue and measuring 37cm which dependent on your neck size of course tends to sit quite high on the neck as a choker, however extenders can be purchased online or better still a good jeweller can source or make one of these useful extenders for you if needed.

Conveniently this chain, dependent of wrist size, can be worn doubled around the wrist and looks equally stunning as a bracelet also!

Stamped 15ct to every curb-link and bearing Jacksons makers mark and guarantee marks to the two original dog clip clasps.

The original sliding T- bar and extra links to support a medallion are also all original to the chain.

Signed Australian chains of this quality and age are becoming increasingly hard to source especially in this fantastic condition.
