Behind the Brand: Monarc Jewellery

Small Scale Production. Eco-Friendly.

Monarc is based in London with an emphasis on craftsmanship, premium materials and bespoke service. Its objective is to create modern, classic jewellery to be worn now and passed on to future generations.

Founder Ella Drake originally hails from New Zealand, coming to the jewellery trade via a lucrative career in modelling. It was through booking a shoot with Vogue Gioiello (Vogue Jewellery edition) that she cemented her passion for fine jewellery, before going on to study at the prestigious Florence campus of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).

Monarc Jewellery is beautifully created by master goldsmiths, it’s luxurious and practical enough to be worn every day. For Monarc, jewellery expresses love, relationships, families, and moments that deserve to be marked. Monarc jewellery is designed to stand the test of time!

Monarc's commitment to the environment is to only use recycled raw materials where possible and limit their footprint by using the latest technology to manufacture in the most environmentally responsible way.
