May 11th 2012 – Johnsons Jewellers are very pleased to announce the arrival of Clogau Gold in to our store.
For nearly 20 years, Clogau Gold has been producing fine jewellery, containing a touch of rare welsh gold within each piece.
Welsh Gold originates from the Clogau St Davids’ Mine, nestled deep within the mountains of Snowdonia and is traditionally used by the Royal Family for their wedding rings, with the most recent being the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in April 2011. Originally founded in 1854 when the director of the Clogau copper mine accidently discovered gold, the mine went through mixed fortunes with the gold veins being inconsistent and difficult to locate. The mine was later founded by William Roberts in 1989 who conducted a few years worth of small scale mining before its eventual close in 1998. Clogau Gold still produces stunning pieces of jewellery inspired by their connection with the royal family and the natural beauty of Wales with William’s son Ben at the helm as Managing Director. Today, there are no active gold mines in Wales, making Welsh gold extremely valuable as supplies diminish.
Due to the scarcity of welsh gold, only a touch is included within each piece of Clogau Gold. This ensures the longevity of welsh gold supplies and the affordability of the jewellery.
Clogau Gold Jewellery is only available to purchase instore at Johnsons Jewellers – we will be more than happy to show you the range within store or should you wish to enquire about a particular piece please do not hesitate to contact us. Alternatively, if you prefer to purchase online you can visit Clogau at www.clogau.co.uk.
