To celebrate 30 years, the North Wales jewellers is giving away this Hope House anchor pendant to one lucky winner.
Clogau Gold is celebrating 30 years with a landmark range of jewellery and a glittering vision for future growth.
The multi award-winning North Wales business has unveiled the 1854 gold blend to mark the anniversary, a unique metal with a pale rose yellow tone that's already proving popular with customers the world over. And the world is very much their audience following an unprecedented period of expansion which has seen their workforce grow to almost 170 staff in Wales alone.
Now supplying retailers across the globe and international airlines including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Lufthansa, and airports from Cardiff to Kuala Lumpur, their products appear in more than 20 countries.
Clogau has also bucked the trend on the high street and successfully opened boutique stores in Bangor, Broughton, Swansea, London, Llandudno and Cardiff - which is currently being refurbished and refitted - and larger outlets in Birmingham, Bridgend and at Cheshire Oaks, Ellesmere Port. They have plans for three more in the coming 12 months.
1854 is itself a milestone in the brand's history; gold was discovered for the first time at the St David's mine in Dolgellau that year, which led to it becoming the richest and most productive gold mine in the country. Managing director Ben Roberts said by reflecting on the success of the last 30 years and embracing the history of Welsh gold they are laying the foundation for an even brighter future.
"For Clogau to have kept growing and be in such a strong position is incredible after 30 years, considering the challenges facing all industries over the decades, but we have done it and plan to be around for another 30 years and beyond."
Founded by Ben's father William in 1989, Clogau Gold is now one of the world's most beloved independent brands. The royal connection has reinforced their reputation, with Welsh gold - the rarest and most sought-after in the world - used in the wedding rings of Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana, Catherine Middleton and, most recently, Meghan Markle.
