‘Slow and Steady wins the Race’
The Tortoise plods determinedly on in his race against the Hare in this ornate column ring, overgrown with grape vines and leaves. In ‘Fables’, every treasure has a tale to tell and a lesson to be learnt.
Our Overgrown Column Ring with Racing Tortoise has been handmade by our expert jewellers in Sterling Silver, with the option of licensed Fairmined Gold Plate. This plating has been responsibly sourced from the Iquira Mine in the Huila region of Columbia.
Passed down over centuries of storytelling, our Fables collection sees Alex and our design team craft a glittering world of folklore and morality inspired by the age-old wisdom of Aesop.
As vine leaves twist around Grecian columns, we discover an elaborately horned Mountain Goat, who is wise to the tricks of a cunning Wolf. An over-confident Hare engages in a race with a patient, determined Tortoise, whilst a noble Rooster strides on proudly, valuing his search for food above glittering jewels.
Fables will be the first Alex Monroe collection to be plated using Fairmined gold - a licensed accreditation that means we are supporting responsibly managed community mines.
