Here are a few more photos of the new Alex Monroe Cufflinks that were launched earlier this week, in our ‘Tie the Knot’ Wedding Week.

From Wednesday 1st February prices of Alex Monroe jewellery will be increasing.
For several years, we have been successful in keeping our prices unchanged. Now, with the recent steady rise in the cost of precious metals, especially gold, we are having to implement a price increase across our collection.
We were thrilled that we were able to absorb the VAT increase last year so that it wasn’t passed on to our customers. In fact our prices have remained mostly unchanged for a long while now. This forthcoming price increase will allow us to keep doing what we love, which is making beautiful jewellery by hand, in the UK.
December is upon us, Christmas is nearly here. So it’s time for our 12 Days of Christmas!
Visit the homepage at www.alexmonroe.com and click the banner to be whisked away to our winter woodland, where you’ll get a chance to meet our cute new friends.
12 completely unique new pieces, in very limited numbers.
With 1 available on the first, 2 on the second, and so on, ending with 12 pieces available on the twelfth.
Each new piece will be available from 9am, so you’ll need to be quick!
And I guess it’s ‘Happy Christmas’ time too!
Here’s what we’ve all been having so much fun doing. It’s our 12 days of Christmas Advent calendar!
So this is how it works; We’ve kind of changed the song around a bit to make it more fun, but on each of the 12 days from 1st December to the 12th, you can open a window and discover what’s behind.
I’ve spent a lovely few weeks making extra special pieces for each day. Each piece is entirely exclusive, and we’ve only made as many as it says in the song. For example (and I don’t think I’m giving too much away here) there will be Five gold rings available on the 5th, eight really cute pieces on the 8th, you get the picture. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Of course, one of my favourite pieces is the first, and we’re only making one of these! What to do? Well, I hope you’ll have as much fun with it as we have.
Perhaps you’d like some clues about what is behind each window? Hmm, how about you read our little poem and see if you can guess.
On the twelfth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me,
Twelve keys a turning,
Eleven rabbits running,
Ten secrets sharing,
Nine teapots pouring,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven daisies dancing,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three french hens,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
We’ve got big news that we’re all really excited about here at Alex Monroe HQ.
Several of Alex Monroe’s 18ct Goldcrest collections are now available in store at Liberty. The Forest Jewels and Eyebright Ring collections, plus a very special new 18ct Baby Bumblebee Necklace are there for you to go see, and try on!
Liberty are the first brick and mortar shop to sell the Goldcrest pieces, which have previously been available only by appointment at our studio and online at the Alex Monroe website. The pieces maintain Alex’s signature style, with the added touch of luxury you get from 18ct Gold, and brilliant colour, thanks to the stunning stones used in each piece.
The Forest Jewels are dominated by beautiful trillion checkerboard cut stones, set in delicate twig rings.
Whilst the stunning Eyebright Rings look great worn individually, and really make an impression when a few are stacked together, mixing the colourful stones for added effect.
Finally, and perhaps most excitingly, there’s the new 18ct Gold Baby Bumblebee Necklace. The addition of the pink sapphire stone shown in the photo, adds a colourful highlight to this Alex Monroe classic, reworked in amazing 18ct Gold. And if the pink sapphire isn’t for you, there are a selection of other coloured stones available. You really need to see this to understand just how beautiful it is!
So pop along to Liberty to have a look at these 18ct Gold pieces and maybe try a few on. With Christmas now visible on the horizon, it’s not too early to start thinking about that extra special gift, for a loved one, or for yourself!
Newly added to the website is Alex’s Forest Jewel Ring Collection.
Taking inspiration from sunlight and shadows in the forest, are these delicate twig rings, with amazing 12mm trillion checkerboard cut stones. The Prasiolite ring comes in solid 18ct white gold, whilst the others come in a solid 18ct yellow gold.
These are great to wear individually, but look even better when worn stacked up together.
That’s enough jewellery for now, because we can’t forget that Alex is currently cycling 1000 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats for charity! Go have a look at the website, catch up with him on his blog, and consider making a donation to a great cause… you can even bid on his gorgeous 18ct bicycle necklaces!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Have we got a treat for you this Friday afternoon! First up is a new archive charm collection just posted on the website. For this, we’ve brought together a collection of our favourite charms from past and present, and crafted them in a beautiful solid 18ct yellow gold.
There are so many to pick from. You can opt for a loose charm if you want to add it to your own chain, or alternatively choose a matching solid 18ct yellow gold bracelet or necklace to wear it on. Plus, if you’re finding it hard to decide, Ulrikke has created her perfect charm bracelet to act as inspiration.
That’s not all though! Susie L has been feverishly working through the heat today to put up some new Trunkshow pieces. Don’t dawdle though, because these new fruity wonders are sure to get snapped up quickly!
Have a great weekend everyone!
