The secret to our success

From the very start we have endeavoured to create the most special and highest quality jewellery containing rare Welsh gold from the Clogau St. David’s Gold Mine in Bontddu (“bont-thee”), in Snowdonia, North Wales.

The small content of Welsh gold that we use in our jewellery gives us a unique selling point over our competitors. It has a intriguing story, not only in terms of the history of the mine, or the copper-tinged colour of the gold, but also the appeal of wearing the same gold that has been used in generations of Royal Family wedding rings.

This makes the proposition very attractive to tourists and resistant to premium prices. Each collection within our range is also inspired by a further story to create a talking point behind each piece of jewellery.

Clogau offers a premium product that, even during recession, has enabled the company to continue to grow because of the trust and awareness we have built up around the brand.

Today, many organisations within the trade see the performance of Clogau as an example of a dynamic business inside a traditional industry.

From starting out with just five employees (three of which were miners) and just five products, we are very proud of our achievements so far. We look forward to building on this success throughout the coming years.
