We create meaningful jewellery that celebrates the fragile beauty of our flora and fauna, all of which contain rare Welsh gold - the gold of royalty for over 100 years.
It never fails to amaze me when I think back to the early days of Clogau, 30 years ago. I was a young boy back then but I can remember my father being hugely excited about a gold mine he had discovered in the Snowdonian mountains.
I didn’t quite understand what all the fuss was about at the time but as I grew up I would always be inspired by his passion and dedication.
I'm glad to say that those values have rubbed off on me and we now work together at Clogau with the same drive and passion all these years later.
As the story of Clogau continues to unfold there's one thing that will always remain - our dedication and love for permanently capturing this beautiful Welsh gold in the most unique jewellery possible.
Gold was discovered at the Clogau St. David’s mine in 1854 and it became the richest and most productive gold mine in the Dolgellau gold belt. My father, Bill Roberts, acquired the Clogau St. David’s mine in the mid 1980s and began a small scale mining operation.
When I first visited the mine with him, I saw the gold in its raw form. I was struck by the pale rose-yellow tone, unlike anything I had seen, a result of the copper that had previously been mined there giving this rose cast to the mine ore. This appreciation of the beauty of this unique shade is behind the creation of blend 1854. To celebrate 165 years since gold was discovered at Clogau and to celebrate our 30th anniversary, this unique blend is used in our limited edition anniversary rings and our Windsor wedding bands.
