Every piece of Clogau jewellery contains Welsh gold

Welsh gold is one of the rarest and most sought-after golds in the world

Clogau Welsh gold is undoubtedly one of the rarest in the world. Due to the cost of extracting it, Welsh gold is no longer being mined and the remaining supplies are becoming increasing sought-after. Each piece of Clogau contains rare Welsh gold from the Clogau St. David’s Gold Mine in Bontddu (pronounced “bont-thee”), in Snowdonia, North Wales. In 1923 this mine was famously chosen to supply the gold that has been used to create generations of Royal Family wedding rings. Clogau jewellery gives you a piece of this wonderful and unique heritage with every piece.

Welsh gold is worn by Royalty

Since 1923 the Royal family have been wearing wedding rings made from pure Welsh gold. This tradition was founded by The Queen Mother, then Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, on her marriage to the Duke of York on 26th April, and continues to this day with the Duchess of Cambridge.

Other members of the Royal family that have worn Welsh gold rings include Her Majesty the Queen, Diana Princess of Wales, Her Highness Princess Margaret Countess of Snowdon, and Their Royal Highnesses Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall.

Welsh gold stamp

We stamp every piece of jewellery, size permitting, with the Clogau logo and Welsh Dragon. The Welsh Dragon stamp indicates that Welsh gold from the Clogau St. David’s Gold Mine in Bontddu, Snowdonia, is included in your piece.

There are other marks that you will find on your jewellery including our sponsor’s mark (the “CG”), the standard mark which indicates the type of fineness of the precious metal and Edinburgh castle, the symbol of the Edinburgh Assay Office.

Stamps applied by Clogau including Welsh Dragon


Certificate of Authenticity

We guarantee that your Clogau jewellery contains rare Clogau Welsh gold extracted from the Clogau St. David's Gold Mine in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales, once owned by the company.

The Clogau gold mine is situated in one of the most stunning parts of Wales, deep in the heart of Snowdonia. Interestingly, it first opened as a copper mine in 1842 and it wasn't until 1854 that gold was accidentally discovered there.

The Clogau St. David's Gold Mine has gone through mixed fortunes over the last century due to the veins of gold being very inconsistent and difficult to locate. This has made Clogau Welsh gold extremely rare.

  "Would buy from Clogau again"
Bought this locket for a birthday gift for one of my daughters. Very well made, good value for the money, came extremely well presented and delivered as promised. Wouldn''t hesitate to buy from Clogau again.

  "Cariad locket"
Ordered online, but using the catalogue that I had been posted as a guide. Everything OK, goods arrived within a few days, exactly as per specification. Item arrived in presentation box, which is ideal as it is for a special birthday for a Grandaughter. Although I have bought from Clogau before, this is the first time I have done it online, and will probably also do my next purchase online.

  "Fantastic Quality"
I bought this lovely locket for my daughters special forth coming 16th Birthday, it has so much meaning from me & her mum! The fact that it is gold from Snowdonia gives it even more special meaning. I will have a very happy daughter when she opens her presents, & she will be proud to wear it, i carefully cut pictures of her mum & i & put them inside, it is beautifully engraved with Cariad on the front & i had Am Byth engraved on the back, which basically means our love fore ever.. What a fantastic meaningful present to give a special person on their special day.. Where ever her life takes her in the world, her mum & i will be there with her, close to her heart! However, i do feel that the 6 character limit for engraving isnt quite enough & i would have been happy to pay extra for more..

  "Great locket"
Struggled for months to find a nice locker of an appropriate size before stumbling across Clogau. What an excellent find. Arrived very quickly and was exactly what I was after. A modern locket echoing an older style. Just to top it of, its made locally out of local materials.

  "Perfect memory present. The quality of this product is amazing"
The quality of this product is amazing, it is the perfect size to hold pictures of loved ones, I bought this for my girlfriend for a specific reason and she liked it so much because of its simple beauty and the reason why it was bought she lets say got emotional which got me to have tears in my eyes and I am not the crying type. The perfect present, I would recommend this as a perfect present for a loved one or for yourself to hold your images of your loved ones.

  "Amazed by the quality of the locket and service!"
I bought this locket as a gift and I am amazed by the quality of the locket and service. After reading the reviews some commented on the size of the actual gold I can say I was very happy with its size and quality. The service was unbelieveable. I ordered it on a Thursday morning and they had said it was out of stock. Taking into account that I also requested it to be engraved I received an e-mail later that same day saying it had been dispatched. It arrived Friday!! Overall I am very happy with this product I will definitely be purchasing more items from Clogau Gold in the future and I would highly recommend this product!
Diana| South Wales| 08 Jun 2012
  "I would definitely think about purchasing Clogau products in the future"
I ordered this Locket to go with the Cariad wedding ring I purchased from Clive Ranger in Bath. I must say these items are classy, different and very good quality. I would definitely think about purchasing Clogau products in the future.

  "Cariad Locket"
Excellent customer service - prompt delivery and great aftercare. Unfortunately, another item in my order has a very minor fault, but was exchanged instantly - I posted it back on Wednesday, they received it Thursday, and I had a replacement delivered Friday morning! And all this over the Christmas period. I thoroughly recommend Clogau if only for their excellent customer service.

  "Cariad Locket (engraved)"
The locket was delivered the day after I ordered it. The engraving is lovely and the locket is beautiful. However the gold heart attachment is absolutely tiny - could have done with a little more gold!
