About Alex Monroe

Alex Monroe jewellery is synonymous with a very British sense of style. Feminine, delicate and quirky, but above all consistently wearable.

A much-loved brand worldwide, each and every piece is individually designed and handmade in England by Alex and his team of expert jewellers. Inspired by nature and nostalgia, every piece has a tale to tell and the story continues with you.

Entomology is the scientific study of insects, a branch of zoology. Alex has returned to his workbench to study and recreate his very own specimen cabinet of beautiful butterflies and brilliant beetles. You'll find intricate bugs transformed into glamorous statement pieces, enhanced with an array of semi-precious stones.

An archetype of it's kind, the Dor Beetle is distinctive, adaptable and sacred. Proudly stomping around fields and pharaohs alike.
