Clogau – The Gold of Royalty
Find out more about the fascinating history of Welsh gold at STORY by Rivoli.
When Prince Edward was appointed Prince of Wales in 1911, the regalia used (including a coronet, ring, rod, and a sword) was made using Welsh gold. This regalia was re-used when Prince Charles was awarded the title in 1969. The rarity and beauty of Welsh gold make it perfect for celebrating special events, and this same gold is contained within every piece of Clogau jewellery.
The rare Welsh gold that lies within every piece of jewellery is the same gold that has been used in the wedding rings of the British Royal Family since 1923. The tradition started with the wedding ring of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother and the wedding rings of several senior Royal Family members including Queen Elizabeth, King Charles III, Princess Anne, and Prince William have also been crafted from Welsh gold.
A representative from Clogau in Wales will be in store at STORY to share their knowledge and the fascinating history of the brand.
