Passed down over centuries of storytelling, Fables sees Alex and our design team craft a world of folklore and morality inspired by the age-old wisdom of Aesop. Every treasure has a tale to tell and a lesson to be learnt. As vine leaves twist around Grecian columns, we discover an elaborately horned Mountain Goat, who is wise to the tricks of a cunning Wolf. An over-confident Hare engages in a race with a patient, determined Tortoise, whilst a noble Rooster strides on proudly, valuing his search for food above glittering jewels.
Fables will be the first Alex Monroe collection to be plated using Fairmined gold - a licensed accreditation that means we are supporting responsibly managed community mines.
Fairmined is an assurance label that certifies gold from small-scale mining organizations embracing responsible practices, transforming mining into an active force for good, providing everyone with a source of gold to be proud of. The Fairmined initiative was created by the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM), a non profit organization globally recognized as a leader and pioneer of responsible artisanal and small scale mining.Learn more about Fairmined Gold
