STOCKIST OF THE WEEK: GERRY BROWNE, PORTLAOISE, IRELAND
You can now find our new collection in Gerry Browne Jewellers in Portlaoise in Ireland. Gerry Browne are one of our new stockists, so we took the opportunity to ask store owner Alison a few questions to find out more about them!
How would you describe your store in 3 words?
Current, relevant, hotspot.
What would you say are the upcoming jewellery trends for 2015?
Small symbols, jewellery with meaning and layering.
What do you like most about Muru jewellery?
I love its simplicity. It’s bang on for now, particularly with the engravable pieces.
If you weren’t a jeweller, what would you be?
How would you describe your average customer?
Definitely not average!
What is the best thing to do in your town/city? (Apart from visit your store of course!)
Visit our Rock of Dunamaise for its raw history untouched by commercialisation. Then a coffee in The Pantry with a slice of their fabulous home baking and sit looking across at our shop window.
What styles do you expect to be popular this Christmas?
Rose gold in 9ct and vermeil. Symbols, curbs, interchangeable disks, initials and ethnic styles.
Do you have any celebrity customers?
No, but I am in the town where Kim & Kanye came on their honeymoon, Portlaoise. They visited Ballfin Demesne which is 5 miles away so you never know…
What other brands do you admire?
What would you do on your perfect day off?
Walk in the Slieve Bloom mountains, Laois near my house – heavenly!
