Alex Monroe Jewellery is inspired by nature, and the nostalgia of a childhood spent roaming the Suffolk countryside. Every piece is conscientiously designed and responsibly handmade in England by jeweller Alex Monroe, our expert team of makers and skilled long-term partners. From strong South East London roots, Alex Monroe jewellery is now much loved worldwide for its unique detail, character and craftsmanship.
The Maker’s Story
Jeweller Alex Monroe grew up in the 1970’s Suffolk countryside in an old, crumbling house surrounded by wild, tangled nature. He enjoyed a childhood rich with freedom and imagination - roaming through fields, forests and rivers and constantly crafting all sorts of interesting (and sometimes mildly dangerous) tools and inventions to accompany him on his adventures!
Training at the School of Art, Architecture and Design in London, Alex unexpectedly turned his hand to the craft of jewellery - and released his first collection in 1987 to critical acclaim. His intention was to produce excellent quality pieces, originally designed, made by hand and well priced. This was jewellery made to be worn, made to be loved and made to be treasured - values which remain unchanged to this day!
Handmade in England
We have been proudly hand making jewellery in England using a mix of traditional and specifically developed techniques for over 30 years. From the inspiration behind our collections, to how our pieces come to life in our workshop, discover the intricate making process behind every piece of Alex Monroe jewellery.
Alex Monroe Jewellery is synonymous with a very British sense of style – slightly quirky, but intended to be worn and loved for a lifetime. Inspired by the natural world, our pieces are delicate, detailed, and always handmade in England.
