Clogau jewellery is seen as an heirloom with both a personal and cultural meaning and a permanent tie to Wales – something valuable to pass down the generations.
Every piece of Clogau jewellery contains rare Welsh gold, as used by some members of the British Royal Family for over 100 years.
Over 150 years ago, rare Welsh gold was discovered in the Clogau St. David’s gold mine, within the mountains of Snowdonia. These precious veins of gold became increasingly difficult to locate over time and mining ceased over a century later.
In 1989 William Roberts, Clogau's Chairman, discovered the abandoned mine and gambled on the idea that there would be undiscovered gold still buried within. To make best-use of this precious Welsh gold, William used it exclusively to create jewellery of the very highest quality, beauty and originality celebrating the magnificent landscapes, myths and legends, and extraordinary flora and fauna of Wales.
Every piece of Clogau jewellery contains this very same rare Welsh gold, designed to be worn and treasured for a lifetime – the Gold of Royalty for over 100 years.
