A Decade of Alex Monroe
We can’t quite believe it - but the 3rd of December 2021 marks an incredible 10 years in our first London Boutique, 37 Snowsfields! In celebration of this exciting occasion, we have created ‘A Decade of Alex Monroe’ - 10 extra special pieces of jewellery, inspired by 10 favourite Alex Monroe collections designed and handmade by Alex and our team over the past 10 years!
From the fruity decadence of 2013’s ‘The Banquet’, to the uplifting and celestial ‘Gather a Dream’ in 2020. Handmade in sterling silver and certified Fairmined gold plate, each statement piece features details and silhouettes instantly recognisable from this decade of collections - with a celebratory touch of colour and sparkle!
