Embracing Brighter Days Ahead - S/S '22


We are proud to introduce our new Spring/Summer '22 Collection. This collection was created by Owner & Designer, Margaret O'Rourke with the vision of 'Embracing Brighter Days Ahead'. In this blog post, she tells us all about the inspiration behind it, what's included in it, her favourite pieces & more.

Tell us what's included in this collection?

You'll see lots of aquamarine, freshwater pearls & golden shadow Swarovski's. This collection contains pieces made from 14kt gold filled, 9kt gold and 18kt gold. This collection was designed to be timeless and each piece can be worn every day; dressed up or down. It includes lots of different shapes like cubes, stars, emerald cut and helix. I recreated the 9kt Gold Satellite Chain so that it can be worn at three different lengths (16", 18", 20"), making it perfect for layering.

What was your inspiration behind this collection?

'Embracing brighter days ahead' was the inspiration behind this collection coming into the Spring/Summer months so I wanted to ensure the jewellery reflected this. Aquamarine was the perfect stone & colour to take centre stage, and I love how the pearls and golden shadow Swarovski's compliment this. Aquamarine is associated with tranquility, serenity, clarity & harmony; which fits perfectly in this launch. I have always loved geometric shapes, especially the emerald cut shape which for me, steals the show!

If you had to choose, what would your favourite piece from the collection be?

My favourite would have to be the Gold Filled Aquamarine Hoops - I adore the emerald cut shape of the Swarovski's.

Tell us a little about how these pieces are made/sourced?
Our Gold Filled pieces are hand-finished in our studio in Dublin 2. Our components and stones are ethically sourced; some here and some abroad.
I design my Fine Gold pieces in Dublin and work closely with amazing craftspeople across Europe, mainly Italy. Our 9kt and 18kt gold pieces are hallmarked in the Assay Office, located on the grounds of Dublin Castle.
Would any of the new collection suit Brides to Be?
Yes we have plenty of beautiful pearls in this collection and the aquamarine could be considered your 'something blue'. I made two pairs of 18kt Gold Pearl Earrings with brides in mind as they are such timeless, elegant pieces.
How should I care for my new pieces?
At MoMuse, we always say that jewellery should be the last thing you put on & the first thing you take off. With our Gold Filled pieces, freshwater pearls & semi precious stones, we recommend avoiding contact with perfumes, lotions & water. Our 9kt & 18kt pieces will never tarnish, but with lots of wear may gather some dirt so we provide complimentary polishing cloths so you can clean from time to time.

Happy Shopping!
