Princess Royal visits Tower Bridge Road jewellery workshop

The Princess made the visit as president of the UK Fashion & Textile Association and to mark the 30th anniversary of the Alex Monroe jewellery brand.

Monroe set up his first studio in South London in 1987. In 2012 he opened a shop in Snowsfields.

Last year the company opened its second premises in SE1 with a new workshop in Tower Bridge Road on a narrow site between the Cold Mountain Kit shop and The George pub.

Both the Snowsfields and Tower Bridge Road buildings were designed by SE11-based DSDHA architects.

Alex Monroe has designed a range of jewellery – including a corgi pendant – on sale at the Buckingham Palace shop.
