As many of you will know, Alex is often inspired by his travels, and our 'Calabria' collection of several years ago is testament to this, with the swallows, flowers and leaves of Alex's Italian holiday destination captured forever in pieces such as this....

But sadly we don't really sell to many shops in Italy, so when we were invited to participate in an event in Milan celebrating the best of British jewellery, we jumped at the chance!

So... a capsule collection of Alex Monroe is now available at the exclusive La Rinascente department store in Milan, in their 'Design Supermarket'.....

Display at 'The Queen's Jewels'

Classic Alex Monroe designs at the Design Supermarket.

The pop-up shop is called 'The Queen's Jewels' as it of course coincided with the Jubilee.  It was great to check out the variety of work from the other UK designers chosen....we especially liked Sam Ubhi, Jianhui, The Branch and Livia Firth - who was in attendance speaking (in Italian!) about her Eco projects.

Here's me with our display in the store.

I decided to take this as a great opportunity to catch up with all of our friends in Milan.....

First stop was the Conde Nast offices.....

Federica is the jewellery editor for Vogue Gioiello and I was also very pleased to spot her wearing our Baby Bee when she spoke at La Rinascente! Federica wrote this report on the event....

Next up was Giulia at her store, Au Cabaret Vert, which is named after one of her best customer's favourite poems!

Me checking out the jewellery....

Au Cabaret Vert have recently moved to 14 Via San Maurilo, and their big re-opening is actually this Thursday! (14th June - details below)

Then I went to see new stockist, Suite 123.....and there may have been an ice cream along the way......!!

A big THANK YOU to everyone in Italy who made me feel so welcome!

Oh, and after all of that I popped down to the beautiful coastal town of Alassio....

Meanwhile, back in the UK, everyone was Jubilee crazy! We launched our Best of British collection to an AMAZING response.....

Suzy.A took a trip down to Brighton to visit our good friends at Silverado, who put on a lovely launch and Trunk Show event......

And our Boutique was so busy it was almost bursting at the seams! Here's Jutta and Beth in a quieter moment....

Great news for anybody who hasn't made it down to see us at our London Bridge Boutique yet.....as of the 16th June - WE ARE NOW OPEN ON SATURDAYS! YAY!

Our Saturday opening hours are 11am - 5pm, and to celebrate our first ever Saturday, the first 10 customers on the day will receive a goodie bag with purchase. We are 2 minutes from the lovely Bermondsey Street, and 10 minutes from Borough Market, so there's plenty of foodie treats in the area too.

Hope you can make it down to see us some time,

Emma x
