Find Your Ring Size 

At Alex Monroe, all of our rings are made by hand in our London workshop. This means that we can make your ring specially to your exact ring size.

When measuring your ring size there are a few things to be aware of:

•  Firstly, your fingers will change size slightly throughout the day. Physical activity, and temperature all have an effect.

•  You shouldn't measure your ring size whilst your hands are cold, as your fingers can be up to half a size smaller at this time.

•  A ring with a wider band will feel a little tighter than a very fine ring. Therefore we would always recommend buying a size larger than your usual ring size.

•  Your ring should fit comfortably, feeling snug enough when you wear it that it won't fall off, but still be able to fit over your knuckle when you take it off.

If you are unsure of your ring size, then by far the best and most accurate way to find out, is to pay a visit to a local jewellers. You can also give us a call on +44(0)2073786061 and speak with a member of our customer service team for additional advice. 

Ordering a special ring size 

If you would like to order a ring size that isn't listed on our website, please give us a call at +442073786061 or email us. We will then be able to confirm whether we can make the ring in your requested size.

Once we have confirmed this, you can place your ring order through our website, selecting the closest listed size.

When placing your order, please make sure to leave a comment with your correct ring size during the checkout process.

Rings made in a size outside of our standard size range will be non-exchangeable or refundable, as we will need to make these specially. We can resize any ring, but there may be a small charge involved to do so.

Customer Reviews

Very beautiful Review by Celeste
Very beautiful piece. One of Mr. Monroe's finest works.

Very well made, not flimsy. I received mine in gold. BUT BEWARE it is a LOT smaller than I had originally imagined it to be. Not that there is a problem with smaller, it was just a surprise.
If you prefer chunkier pendants, get the regular sized bumblebee. (Posted on 10/05/2017)
Mixed! Review by Bronwyn
I was absolutely smitten with this necklace and have worn it daily for about three years. The detail is beautiful. However, it's worth noting that the gold plating started to wear off around 6 months in. Three years later, it's mostly silver except for the wings, which makes it look a little dirty. I still get compliments on it, but I wish it held up a little longer for what I paid. (Posted on 23/11/2016)
Love it Review by Alice
I got this as a present from my boyfriend, the rose gold one. I love it and have had so many compliments on it :-) very happy thinking of buying the bigger bee necklace to layer with this one, as i like them so much xx (Posted on 09/10/2016)
I love my Baby Bee Necklace Review by Marie
I chose the Baby Bee Necklace in Rose Gold as an anniversary gift and have just taken delivery of it (very speedy service by the way!). As I had only seen the necklaces on the internet, I wasn't sure about the tone of the gold or whether I had chosen the right size so was somewhat anxious to open the box. All I can say is wow! It is absolutely beautiful and I am delighted with the Rose Gold option and the size for me is just right. It sits perfectly around my collarbone on the shortest chain length where everyone will be able to see and admire my little Bee. I have seen some reviews on other stockists sites where people have commented that it is pricey given that it is only gold vermeil rather than sold gold but I think it is worth every penny and can honestly say the images online do not do this wonderful piece of jewellery justice at all. The only downside is my anniversary is not until next month so I've put my Bee back in the box and will have to wait awhile before I see him again. (Posted on 26/07/2016)
Delighted Review by Alex
I bought this necklace today from a shop in Lytham. It's very delicate and truly beautiful (Posted on 06/07/2016)
Love the necklace Review by Lorelei
I bought the bee at John Lewis a few weeks ago. I thought it was a little overpriced but it is heavy and well-made, not flimsy or cheap. There is a lot of realistic detail, as well, not just a few horizontal stripes as many bee necklaces have. I have worn with with all outfits from dressy to casual and it suits.
