Product Description

A sterling silver matchbox locket slides open to reveal a single match and a tiny heart set with a ruby in this special ‘One of a Kind’ necklace. Featuring 9ct solid gold details, this locket features ornate hand-engraving mirroring the design of a vintage matchbox, with a little bee and the poignant words ‘In Darkness there is Light’. Brought to life from a drawing by 13 year old Roman. Back in April at the height of the COVID-19 crisis, we launched our first ever design competition ‘Designs for Hope’ - a creative distraction for our community, who we tasked with presenting us with an idea for a piece of Alex Monroe jewellery, drawing on what ‘hope’ means to them. Alex and our design team have since been back at work in our London workshop, and have brought the unique and poignant winning drawings to life in our Designs for Hope collection, with proceeds donated to mental health charity Mind.
