Alex Monroe grew up in the countryside, in the wilds of Suffolk in a big old house surrounded by nature. He lived a life of adventure in rivers and forests, roaming freely in nature’s playground. After training at the Sir John Cass School of Art in London, Alex created his first collection in 1987 to critical acclaim. His intention was to produce excellent quality jewellery, which was originally designed, hand made and well priced. This was jewellery made to be worn and made to be loved and these values remain unchanged to this day.
Alex and his design team create all original designs by hand in 18k gold, allowing them to achieve his signature detail. When his jewellery goes into production, it is still hand-finished by skilled craftspeople in his London workshop, and Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
