Original designs, unique heritage and a connection to Wales
Since the very first piece, we have always believed in creating the most beautiful and unique jewellery containing rare Welsh gold.
For 25 years Clogau has been chosen to mark life's most precious moments, acting as beautiful and lasting reminders of the milestones that touch our lives.
Rare Welsh Gold in each piece
Our jewellery is distinctive due to the majority of it being two-toned. Our pieces are usually either yellow gold with rose gold detailing, or sterling silver with rose gold detailing.
Within every piece of Clogau jewellery (and watch) is rare Welsh gold from Snowdonia. This is usually featured within the rose gold detailing.
Welsh gold is now one of the world's most precious and sought-after golds and has been used by Royalty since the investiture of Prince Edward of Wales at Caernarfon Castle in 1911.
The regalia used (which consisted of a coronet, a rod, a ring, a sword and a robe or mantle with doublet and sash) included Welsh gold. These were later re-used at Prince Charles's investiture at Caernarfon Castle in 1969.
Within each piece of our jewellery is the same Welsh gold, creating an esteemed and unique association with the British Royal family.

Inspired by Wales
Staying true to our Welsh roots, our designers take much inspiration straight from our doorstep on the edges of the Snowdonia in North Wales.
Home to some of the highest percentage of Welsh speakers in Wales, Snowdonia offers a rich tapestry of history, culture and natural beauty that is at the heart of Wales's national heritage.
No matter where you go, every hill, mountain and standing stone has a story to tell. Legends such the famous King Arthur, the Mabinogion tales, the town of Beddgelert which owes its name to the heart-rending tale of Prince Llywelyn and his dog Gelert, and the legends of the mountain Cader Idris dot the landscape of this enchanting land.
Alongside this is evidence of the area's human history which dates back to prehistoric times, with Stone Age burial chambers, Roman forts, churches, castles, slate quarries and other industrial works.
And then there is Snowdonia's breathtaking natural beauty. Attracting millions of visitors each year, the area features a diverse range of wildlife, mountains, lakes, woodlands and valleys that produce some of the most stunning natural beauty in the British Isles.
Our love and passion for Wales' ancient history, mythology and wonderful natural scenery provides us with countless opportunities to create the most stunning pieces of unique jewellery.
Hand-crafting a Clogau Ar Dan ring
Creating Clogau jewellery is an art that takes many hours of designing, painstaking craftsmanship, and quality control checks. Our craftsmen hand-craft each piece using traditional techniques that have stood the test of time.
When you hold and wear a piece of Clogau, you can see the love and dedication that our craftsmen have put into creating it.
Each piece is hand finished and then passes through a strict and thorough quality control procedure. This dedication to quality is instilled by William Roberts and his son Ben who run Clogau as a family business.
