We have some very special news for your this Friday….
For the month of August we are running an amazing competition with Country & Town House Magazine for one lucky person to win a voucher for £1000 to spend on, or put towards a bespoke commission.
Here is our full page spread in the magazine!
The competition is a simple prize draw, and the winner will visit our Boutique to design their dream piece of Alex Monroe jewellery in a private one-to-one consultation with Alex himself.
As with any commission, the price will be calculated accordingly, and upon agreement, the work will begin! We will then contribute £1000 towards the total price.
In addition to our main collections of jewellery, we also make a small range called ‘Goldcrest’ which is precious or ‘fine’ jewellery. All of the pieces are solid 18ct yellow or white gold, and adorned with Diamonds or exquisite gem stones.
Of course, there are many special occasions which require a special piece of jewellery, but none quite so momentous as a wedding day! So we are very happy that many Alex Monroe creations have completed that all-important “Yes” or “I Do” moment, from our ‘Heritage‘ rings, to the ‘Forest Jewels‘.
The majority of our bespoke commissions are of course for Engagement or Wedding Rings, and existing Alex Monroe designs often form the starting point for this. We can work in 18ct Gold or Platinum, and source Diamonds to suit any budget.
Many of our customers chose gemstones over Diamonds, either precious, or semi-precious, that perhaps hold significant meaning, or are maybe just a favourite colour!
A bespoke piece of jewellery can be much more affordable than one might imagine, but even so, we always advise customers to come with a fixed budget in mind. We can then design the piece and source stones around this budget, which makes things easier for us, and avoids any potential shocks for the client!
We are very proud to be selling a selection of Rings with the beautiful bridal company, BHLDN (pronounced ‘Beholden’) in the USA, they have two stores, in Chicago and Houston, but you must check out their website – it is absolutely stunning.
And we were thrilled to read what one of their Brides said about it:
“ My fiancee and I decided on this ring as an unconventional engagement ring, and I love it. It is gorgeous, and it’s a fun and glamorous alternative to the basic diamond engagement ring. The twig-sculpted band is particularly wonderful. This is perfect for a non-traditional bride or just as a great piece to add to your collection. “
In addition to the Rings themselves, there are still lots of other jewellery-wearing opportunities for your big day! We’ve heard from customers who have worn everything from Lockets, to Birds to Feathers on their wedding day, and we know lots of pieces have been bought as bridesmaids gifts too.
We were lucky enough to contribute to a gorgeous bridal shoot recently, styled by Hannah Gooch of The Ebury Collection (which is a directory of the best and most unique wedding specialists in the UK) and photographed by Sarah Gawler.
Here are a couple of our favourite shots:
Let us know if you wore any Alex Monroe on your wedding day!
