The Clogau brand was first brought to life when a local Welshman named William Roberts made an exciting discovery in the rural mountains of Snowdonia. Roberts was able to extract a stockpile of rare Welsh gold that was then used exclusively to create the jewellery that founded the Clogau brand. Since then, Clogau jewellery has become renowned around the world not just for their striking designs but for being worn by members of the Royal family including Her Majesty the Queen and the late Princess Diana of Wales.
All our Clogau jewellery is delivered in elegant Clogau packaging.

The pendant itself is generously crafted using rare Welsh rose gold and sterling silver. Delicate charms are incorporated in the pattern on the pendant, including, acorns, leaves, vines etc. All significant features that represent a tree in real life.

For over 150 years the Clogau St David’s gold mine went through mixed fortunes with gold veins being most inconsistent and difficult to locate. The mine was developed for gold production in the 1862 rush and continued as an important operator until 1911. A total of 165,031 tons of Gold ore was mined equating to 78,507 ounces. However, by the late 1990’s the last train carrying Welsh gold from the Clogau mine clanked to a halt resulting in the mine being taken over and held by local exploration company.
