Our latest news...

Happily gracing the rocky gardens of Wales, the bright and delicate Welsh poppy has provided the inspiration for our new take on the exquisite Welsh Poppy collection.

The new Welsh Poppy pieces capture the beauty of the iconic flower with its elegantly curved petals, and sparkling black diamonds and rubies. Adorned in 9ct yellow and rose gold, these exquisite pieces contain rare Welsh gold – the Gold of Royalty for over 100 years.

As part of this beautiful collection, we will be launching our special edition Welsh Poppy pin. This beautifully hand finished gold and diamond pin is limited to 1918 pieces and contains rare Welsh gold from Snowdonia – an exquisite heirloom to be treasured by future generations.

The collection provides an emblem of remembrance, dedication and appreciation for those who sacrifice themselves for the lives of the ones they love. and we are proud to support the Welsh charity, HTW Support who assist veterans to cope with life after the forces and helping families across Wales with emotional support as well as practical support. £10 of each Welsh Poppy piece sold will be donated to HTW Support.

Carol Richards from HTW Support talks about the association with us here at Clogau:

“As a Welsh Armed Forces Charity helping our ex servicemen and women, HTW Support is pleased and proud to be sponsored by Clogau.

The donations received from sales of Clogau’s beautiful Welsh Poppy range will directly support those Veterans who are suffering and enhance their quality of life”.

The striking peacock symbolises integrity and the beauty one can achieve. Inspired by the peacock, we are thrilled to unveil our autumn window displays at our flagship stores in Cardiff and London, along with our outlet stores in Cheshire Oaks, Bridgend and Resorts World Birmingham.

We have worked with design company Global Display Ltd to create wonderfully unique and impactful window displays for our stores. Autumn at Clogau celebrates our beautiful Peacock Throne and Milestones® collections.

It was backed by representations of two open peacocks’ tails, gilded, enamelled, and inset with famous Koh-i-Noor and Akbar diamonds, Samarian Spinel and many other exquisite stones.

Our exquisite Milestones® bead charms represent a personal story in a beautiful and unique way. Charm bracelets rose in popularity amongst the European noble classes during the period in which our heritage starts, when Queen Victoria became instrumental in their revival. A contemporary heirloom gift to mark precious moments in your lifetime.
