From Maureen O’Hara, to Grace Kelly and household style Newbridge Silverware is synonymous with modern Irish glamor, design and jewelry. But the Kildare family company, which dates to the 1930s, has a long heritage. From the founding of the cutlery company and World War II to its online store and international success, Newbridge is an Irish brand success story.

Through the hardships of the mid-1900s from the War, to economic depression, hard work saw the eventual evolution of Newbridge into a company renowned for its cutlery, homeware, jewelry and all kind of silverware.

By the 1990s Newbridge had created its first jewelry collection reflecting the simple elegant design ethic of the time and is a huge success. During the 2000s the chance acquisition of an iconic dress belonging to Audrey Hepburn sparked an idea, which led to the creation of Newbridge's Museum of Style Icons, now one of the most popular attractions in Ireland.

Now just in the run up to Christmas Newbridge are giving away $1,000 worth of jewelry and homeware products. To be in with a chance to win visit NewbridgeSilverware.com/Competition-US and fill in your details.

Today, the company not only creates jewelry inspired by stars such as Maureen O’Hara, Naomi Campbell, Grace Kelly (and Guinness of course) but it plays home to icons of styles person effects. The museum’s collection now includes items from Marilyn Monroe, Princess Grace, Judy Garland, Michael Jackson, Greta Garbo and the Beatles.
