We’re thrilled to announce that we have another blog on the wonderful Welsh bridal blog Cwtch the Bride! The blog is centered around our magical Clogau Compose range - head over to Cwtch the Bride to see the original post.
So if we said you can have an engagement ring that not only can you have a part in building, but is also set with exquisite diamonds, is quintessentially Clogau in design and contains rare Welsh gold – the same gold used in wedding rings of British royalty for decades – how would you feel? Pretty special right!
The first major link between Welsh Gold and the Royal family began in 1911 when Prince Edward I was officially invested as the Prince of Wales in a special ceremony at Caernarvon Castle on the fringes of Snowdonia, North Wales.
This very same rare Welsh gold has since been used to create wedding rings for some members of the Royal Family since 1923. This tradition was founded by The Queen Mother, then Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, on her marriage to the Duke of York on 26 April 1923.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s wedding ring, from her marriage to The Duke of Edinburgh on 20 November 1947 is crafted from a nugget of pure Welsh gold from the Clogau St. David’s mine. Other members of the Royal Family to have Welsh gold wedding rings include Princess Anne (1973), the late Princess Diana (1981), Prince Charles (1981 & 2005) and Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall (2005).
The tradition of using Welsh gold in the wedding rings of the British Royal family was carried into its 88th year with the most recent Royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on 29th April 2011. Catherine commissioned her wedding ring to be made from pure Welsh gold.
Now, it is your chance to feel like a Princess and without further ado, as promised, let us introduce two more of our truly sublime engagement ring designs and bride personalities.
