Welcome to the Clogau blog

Next week, 18th – 21st October, Clogau Gold will be exhibiting at the Tax Free World Association’s World Exhibition in Cannes, France.

If you happen to be there, come and see us – our stand is located at D35 in the Yellow Village.

Our Head of Global Sales, David Butler, will be at the Clogau stand showing off our beautiful jewellery collections and stunning new marketing campaign.

We’ve come a long way since we exhibited last year. Our product range is now more appealing to an international market while still keeping true to our design roots and Welsh heritage. We still use a touch of rare Welsh gold in every piece of jewellery we make and our Royal link is as important today as ever.

What’s more is that we’re holding a solid gold competition!

Any person who visits our stand during the week is encouraged to leave a business card with us, each person who does is included in a prize draw with the chance to win a specially commissioned necklace with a high-street value of £1,000.

To book an appointment with David at the Clogau stand, you can phone him on +447595733379 or e-mail him at david.butler@clogau.co.uk

Is it just me, or, when watching a particularly scandalous episode of Coronation Street, there’s nothing more annoying than the advert break 15 minutes in to keep me in suspense. Just as things start heating up in the Rovers Return, here comes another insurance company offering me 12 months for the price of 10!

I’ve found that the only productive way of using this time is to nip into the kitchen to make a cup of tea and sneak a few biscuits from the cupboard. But, from the 8th November, no amount of tea or chocolate HobNobs will remove me from my sofa!

If you live in Wales or the surrounding border counties and happen to be watching ITV Wales or S4C between 8th November and 19th December, you may want to keep an eye out for 30 seconds of rare Welsh gold.

Clogau is launching a TV advert which will be shown during some prime time viewing slots.

At this point, I can’t give much away or it wouldn’t be much of a surprise would it?!

What I can tell you is that filming began only last week in Cardiff under the watchful eyes of Clogau’s Ken Jones (Marketing Manager). The theme of the advert is a continuation of our latest ‘Touch’ campaign, focusing on the way Clogau jewellery is used to mark the important moments and milestones in people’s lives.

Here’s the good bit: within each scene of the advert there will be a hidden secret letter. You will need to put these letters together to discover a secret word! Once you know what the secret word is, you can then go to www.clogau.co.uk or your nearest Clogau stockist to enter the competition to win an item of Clogau jewellery.

Just for you Clogau Blog readers, I’ll treat you to a few behind-the-scenes photos taken during the first few days of filming.
