A chatelaine is a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it. Each chain is mounted with useful household appendages such as scissors, thimbles, watches, keys, vinaigrette, and household seals. (from Wikipedia).

It's quite delicate.  I would expect a watch chain to be chunkier.

Chatelaine is also the word for a female keeper of a castle. It's the word I use to refer to my partner rather than partner or other half or significant other etc The trouble is she hates the word and thinks it's pretentious.

Hopefully the link works.  I have no idea if they are right about the collar button name, nor how one would wear them!

Bow tie at the collar, cummerbund at waist, that usually leaves 3 fastenings of the shirt showing. Unless you have a shirt with a button cover then studs are the best option. Bit fancy with a interlinking chain.
