Oak Leaf & Acorn Branch Hoop Earrings
Alex Monroe's first collection was in 1987 and now his jewellery is synonymous with a very British sense of style. It is feminine, delicate, nostalgic and quirky, but above all consistently wearable. Alex grew up in the Suffolk countryside, and his love for the natural world and its enchanting beauty and intricacy yet lightness of touch are translated into all of his jewellery, of which every piece is individually designed and handmade in England by Alex and his team. This year is the 30th Anniversary of Alex Monroe, and when reflecting on past sketchbooks, his clear and constant love of nature, his creative mind, and design integrity shone through. The new ‘Four Seasons’ collection is in celebration of this anniversary and looks to his past inspirations, re-imagining themes to create treasures for the future. A branch of golden oakleaves peppered with little silver acorns forms these earrings in a mix of sterling silver and 22ct gold plate. The earring measures approximately 4.7cm from top to bottom.
