About Alex Monroe10 Dec 2017
Alex Monroe jewellery is synonymous with a very British sense of style. It is feminine, delicate and quirky, but above all consistently wearable. Now a much loved brand world-wide, each and every piece is individually designed and handmade in England by Alex and his team.
Alex grew up in the countryside, in the wilds of Suffolk in a big old house surrounded by nature. He lived a life of adventure in rivers and forests, roaming freely in nature’s playground. In the years to come, this idyllic but eccentric childhood would shape Alex’s jewellery. His love for the natural world continues to provide an inspiration. A fondness for the eccentricities of Englishness provides a touch of humour and nostalgia. A fascination with the intricacies of making things ensures superb craftsmanship.
After training at the Sir John Cass School of Art in London, Alex created his first collection in 1987. His aim was to produce excellent quality jewellery, which was originally designed, handmade and well-priced. This was jewellery made to be worn and made to be loved. These values remain unchanged to this day.
