Jewelry that empowers and rewards.
We believe that jewelry is an outward expression of our inner virtues, of our strength, our collective womanhood and a deserving celebration of our self-worth. We’re committed to creating objects of desire crafted with passion and ingenuity, that empower and reward, both for ourselves and when bestowed on those we love.
We know, as women, we are dynamic and complex. We can be soft and spirited. Magnetic and bold. Confident and vulnerable. We are inspired by the pioneering spirit of our muse, Marilyn Monroe, and like Marilyn, we dream, we struggle, we win and we lose. We believe that through celebration and defining moments, each of us has the freedom to pursue our own unique path, and embrace the most genuine version of ourselves.
For us, dreaming is not an idle state, it’s an active one.
Love is in the details.
Uncompromised detail and quality are our abiding commitments at M. Monroe. We value our customers and the trust they place in our brand, that’s why every piece is designed and seamlessly delivered direct to you.
The M. Monroe process is simple: We ensure that every stage of production is thoughtful and deliberate, beginning with the finest and purest materials. Our rose gold has been carefully crafted for perfect balance and color, creating a soft glow that illuminates the skin. Every stone is ethically sourced and hand selected by master stone-cutters for exceptional color and clarity. All of our diamonds are conflict-free and comply fully with the Kimberley Process, and any diamond larger than .60 carats is certified by the Gemological Institute of America, the industry gold standard.
We vet our global partners thoroughly, selecting only socially responsible manufacturers who care about the wellbeing of their employees and give back to their communities, whether through education, healthcare or like-minded initiatives. We are proud of the strong relationships we have built in the industry and our intimate involvement in each step of our detailed process. This dedication and commitment allows you to wear every piece of M.Monroe jewelry with confidence and integrity.

Monroe collection, our experienced staff will be happy to schedule a visit for you to view, style and shop. Availability is by appointment only, so please contact a client representative at email@example.com to schedule.
This is Us.
At M. Monroe, we’re proud to celebrate the complexities and nuances of womanhood, knowing that like Marilyn, the actor, the poet, the feminist, the dreamer – we’re so much more than the sum of our parts. Inspired by her gentle humanity and her brave embrace of imperfection, examining Marilyn’s life teaches us about ourselves and helps reveal the abundance of beauty in the world. This unifying appreciation has brought together an extraordinary group of women (and a few men) rich with talent spanning the spectrum from luxury to operations to design.
Our design team is led by Yunjo Lee, a spirited luxury jewelry designer with a distinctly feminine aesthetic that is equal parts sensitive, poetic and bold. Sitting side by side with some of the greatest artists and craftsmen, Yunjo has created iconic pieces for brands like Tiffany & Co. Our Chief Operating Officer Padmaja Bommareddy, recently relocated to New York after stints in London, Milan and Sydney at luxury companies including Burberry and Valentino. We’re all dedicated to building a culture that represents modernity and diversity, honoring women and acknowledging our immeasurable worth.
Because we know our collective womanhood is a powerful force, we’re committed to making impact far beyond the virtual walls of M. Monroe. That’s why we’ve partnered with Girls Write Now – an award-winning organization that mentors underserved young women to find their voices through the power of writing and community. Like Marilyn, Girls Write Now understands the power of the written word. Through one-to-one mentoring with professional women writers and media makers, writing and technology workshops and leadership opportunities, Girls Write Now is inspiring young women throughout New York’s five boroughs to share their craft and tell their stories. We’re proud to help give a voice to the next generation of Modern Marilyn’s, so they may make their own mark on the world. Learn more and get involved at girlswritenow.org.
