Product DescriptionAn 18ct gold fine chain necklace is adorned with flowers, leaves and a teeny tiny bee! Discover our special fine jewellery collection created in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Alex’s iconic Bumblebee Necklace! In 'The Beekeeper', flowers and leaves entwine to reveal miniature bees nestled within. Handcrafted from 18ct gold and illuminated with ethically sourced diamonds, the Beekeeper is handcrafted in our London Studio.
The bee represents a whole array of thoughts and emotions for me; Feminine strength, beauty, vulnerability, the Renaissance idea of the inevitable pain of love, community. There is a nostalgic Britishness to the bee, Beatrix Potter and the cottage country garden. And then of course there is the environmental role of bees, pollinating the world’s food while under constant threat from pollution. There is so much symbolism in my bee… I can see most of what I was after, and I hope people who buy or wear one might see just a little bit of my inspiration in their bee, and of course, they will have their own ideas about what their bee means to them too!Discover The Beehive
Alex's signature Bumblebee necklace is a nostalgic nod to the bees of his childhood...fat, fuzzy and in abundance in the Suffolk Countryside each summer.
We were unbeelievably excited to spot Holly Willoughby wearing an Alex Monroe Bumblebee Necklace in the I’m a Celebrity Jungle. The perfect sparkly expression of Jungle style!Follow our Journey
