Alex Monroe grew up in the countryside, in the wilds of Suffolk, England. His childhood was spent roaming freely in the surrounding rivers and forests. After training at the Sir John Cass School of Art in London, Alex created his first collection in 1987. Alex's love for the natural world continues to provide a key source of inspiration for his jewelry collections. Almost 30 years later, he and his team of expert jewelers continue to design and handcraft his main collections of sterling silver and gold-plated jewelry in his London workshop. Alex Monroe jewelry is feminine, delicate and quirky. Inspired by nature and nostalgia, every piece has a tale to tell…and the story continues with you.
