Welsh Gold

Welsh gold has been treasured throughout the centuries since the time when the Romans occupied Britain. For the last hundred years our Kings and Queens have used this rare metal to fashion their wedding rings.

Nowadays there are no gold mines in Wales; the last one, the Clogau mine near Bontddu closed in 1998. So the only way to find this gold is to brave the icy Welsh rivers and pan for gold by hand. That is why it is a very rare commodity.

Brian Wright of the Gold Rivers Trust is one of the few who still regularly toil to search out this precious metal. He has given us a few small nuggets to sell on his behalf. These can be used to fashion new jewellery or kept as a rare Welsh memento.

Call us or come in to the shop for more details.
