Clogau Gold on QVC create Royal Celebration Ring for the Birth of Our New Prince

Life is good in the UK - we're having glorious weather and now we (the royal 'we') have a new baby prince!! Congratulations Will & Kate!

And what better way to celebrate the birth of our new prince than to treat ourselves (well it has been tough playing the waiting game) and buy a new piece of jewellery?

 Clogau Gold has created the Gold Royal Oak Celebration ring exclusively for QVC to mark the special occasion.
The ring is a 9ct yellow gold band with rose gold overlay in a unique Tree of Life design with a sparkling brilliant cut diamond and engraved with ‘Dathlu’ – Welsh for ‘celebration’.

Limited Edition of 2013 all are engraved with the Official Diamond Jubilee Hallmark and specific edition number e.g: ‘1/2013’, ‘2/2013’ and so on.
Price £600 but QVC has an introductory price of £545.46

Unique Celebration design - Clogau’s popular Tree of Life design beautifully combines with an acorn which is inspired by the oak and acorn motif from the new Middleton Coat of Arms as well as symbolising new life.
Clogau’s link to royalty
Welsh gold is very rare and precious and has been used by royalty since 1911. At the investiture of Edward, Prince of Wales, his coronet was crafted entirely of Clogau Welsh Gold. Clogau Gold jewellery includes a touch of this very same gold within each piece, creating an esteemed association with the British Royal Family
What does the Tree of Life design stand for?
The original inspiration for the Tree of Life came from the ancient story of the Garden of Eden in which a tree grew bearing fruit that would grant everlasting life to whomever ate from it. Stylised branches, fruits and ivy intertwine to produce a variety of intricate and delicate forms, which are incorporated in the ring. Clogau have also taken inspiration from Charles Darwin, who believed that the evolution of nature was expressible as a metaphor he termed the Tree of Life. In 1859, he said; “As buds give rise by growth to fresh buds, and these, if vigorous, branch out and overtop on all sides many a feebler branch, so by generation I believe it has been with the great Tree of Life, which fills with its dead and broken branches the crust of the earth, and covers the surface with its ever-branching and beautiful ramifications.”
What is the Royal Clogau Oak?
Symbolising strength and endurance, the mighty oak is often associated with Royalty as an emblem of these most noble characteristics. The national Tree of Wales, the Royal Oak, is famous for being the hiding place of King Charles II during The Battle of Worcester in 1651.
