For the Thirteenth Doctor’s soon to be iconic earring, Jodie Whittaker turned to celebrity jeweler Alex Monroe. Now fans can buy their own Doctor Who replicas from Monroe himself.
The Thirteenth Doctor is in many ways, both completely the same person the Doctor always was and very much her own woman. But there’s one particularly distinctive things about the Doctor’s new appearance. Whittaker is the only actor, so far, to wear an earring as the character. Easily missed in those final scenes in last Sunday’s Doctor Who, when the Doctor unveils her new look she’s also acquired a single, classy, cuff earring in her left ear.
The design was the result of a collaboration between Whittaker and celebrated jeweler Alex Monroe. It features gold and silver hands shaking hands (representing the bond between the Earth and the Doctor) on the ear lobe and a cluster of silver stars cuffed around the upper ear to represent the Doctor’s alien origins. Once the design was agreed, it was hand made in Monroe’s exclusive London Bridge workshop.
Now you can have the Doctor’s Galaxy Earring too
Now Alex Monroe is making exact replicas of his original custom piece available for general sale. Whether you’re a perfectionist cosplayer, or are just showing your fandom, the ‘Doctor Who Galaxy’ earring is ideal. It’s available exclusively from Alex Monroe’s own online store, or from their London Bridge shop. It’s priced at £135.
Of the project, Alex Monroe says “I love Doctor Who and watched it religiously when I was a kid and now my kids absolutely love it. I have three girls, each one brought up with a different Doctor. To create a piece for the show and such a strong character is incredibly rewarding and exciting.”
Monroe has also made other pieces inspired by the Thirteenth Doctor. If the cuff and chain look isn’t to your tastes, then a more straightforward version is available. Consisting simply of the handshake in the form a single stud the Companion Earring is priced at £75.
Also being produced is the Galaxy In-Line Necklace featuring two silver hands holding a cluster of golden stars between them.
