Clogau Ring - Finding the one for me


  

I've been wanting to buy myself a new ring for a few months but I've not been able to find the right one. The ring had a lot of meaning to me so despite looking online and in shops I'd come up short, the right ring just wasn't jumping out at me. Then it dawned on me that I wanted something Welsh, my heritage is very important to me so having gold from my own country seemed like a good idea. 

Clogau is a family business based in Wales with all of their pieces containing a touch of rare Welsh gold from Snowdonia, their gold has been used in the wedding rings of members of the royal family including the Queen and the Prince of Wales.

Clogau have a shop in Cardiff so I decided to firstly look on their website to see if there was anything on there I liked, two rings stood out. After going into the shop and trying on both rings my heart was set on the Tree of Life ring. It's made of silver and gold and is set with white topaz. As soon as I tried it on I knew it was right for me. I have small fingers (the finger I'm wearing it on in the photo above is size J - the smallest Clogau go down to) and the delicate nature of this ring with leaves and vines on it suited me. As well as the way the ring looks what I love about this ring is what it symbolises, Clogau's website puts it perfectly:

"...a combination of berries, leaves and vines represent new life forms that intertwine and evolve from the old, creating ever more beautiful natural formations."


To me that settled it. It was everything I was looking for in a ring. Due to the small size of the ring I had to wait two weeks for it to come in but it was worth the wait. I love looking at my ring, it reminds me of everything I've been through and what I have to look forward to in life.
