Can you still buy Monty Don jewellery?

In 1981, Monty and his wife Sarah Erskine started Monty Don Jewellery, a London-based business that designed, made, and sold costume jewellery.

The company became a success and in five years, operated from a shop on Beauchamp Place in Knightsbridge with hundreds of outworkers and had secured as many as 60 outlets across the UK, including Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and Liberty.

Among their customers were Boy George, Michael Jackson, and Princess Diana.

However, the 1987 stock market crash caused an almost complete bankruptcy as it cut off American sales, their biggest market.

The situation prompted Monty to embark on a career in writing and broadcasting.

Reflecting on the experience, he once wrote in The Sunday Times: "We were lambs to the slaughter and we lost everything, […] we lost our house, our business.

"We sold every stick of furniture we had at Leominster market".

Despite the business closing, some of their jewellery is kept at the V&A Museum.

You can still purchase some of his jewellery that has been pre-loved on sites like eBay.
