A third generation jeweler, McDonough is one of Britain’s most luxurious jewelers having been in the industry for almost 30 years. Starting her eponymous label in 1985, her brand grew exponentially and saw her moving her boutique several times until she finally landed a flagship on Symons just off Sloane Square.
Wanting to create a line that would be wearable for women of all ages, McDonough expresses her creativity through uses of boldly-colored stones and classic styling to design pieces that are both statement-making and demure. Favorite materials like 18 karat yellow gold, pavé diamonds and smooth cabochon stones are popular throughout the collection and showcase her love of all things brilliant, colorful and sparkling. Describing her own style as “classic and fun—jewelry that will make you feel better than you did before you put it on!” her favorite stone is Peridot, a summery green gem that is just as eye-catching as it is stylish.
