'Nature's First Green is Gold - Behind our Autumn Winter 2022 Collection

Our founder, Margaret O'Rourke discusses the inspiration behind her new Autumn Winter collection and shares some tips on how to style and gift her favourite pieces.


What's your first port of call when it comes to designing a new collection

It's mostly colours that inspire my new collections. This season, it's all about emerald green - my favourite gemstone. I do keep an eye on trends but I love this line,

Where can I buy the new collection?  

Our AW22 collection is available online at, our store in Powerscourt Townhouse, Dublin as well as our store in Avoca, Kilmacanogue. Our stockists across the country will have this collection from October. 


Can you share some tips on how to style your favourite pieces?

The emerald pendant will layer beautifully with the long paper clip necklace. The beauty of the paperclip necklace is that it can also be worn as a short, double layer necklace.

Is there one particular style you include in all of your collections?

We always include hoops in our collections - both gold-filled and 9kt gold. They are timeless, simple and quintessentially MoMuse.

Can you bring us through the making of the petite pearl circle drop earrings?

    Our pearls are ethically sourced from pearl farms in Asia via a small German supplier with whom we’ve been working for many years. You can read more about the finer detail of our pieces here.

    We work with a number of ethical suppliers who manufacture the components we use in our gold-filled collection. These are then assembled and hand-finished in our lovely new studio space on the top floor of Powerscourt Townhouse. Our pieces are made for longevity but of course require gentle care.

    Which pieces would you pack on an Autumnal city break? 

      The new layered paperclip chain, my 9kt 3 star necklace and my diamond studs and huggies. I always wear my 9kt gold bangles layered with other pieces.
