Royal Associations

In 1911, at the investiture of Prince Edward of Wales at Caernarfon Castle, the regalia used incorporated pure Welsh gold, identified by the Welsh dragon stamp. The regalia were later re-used at Prince Charles's investiture at Caernarfon Castle, in 1969. 

Some members of the British Royal Family have used pure Welsh gold to create their wedding rings, since 1923. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s very own wedding ring, from her marriage to The Duke of Edinburgh on 20th November 1947, is crafted from a nugget of pure Welsh gold from the Clogau St. David’s gold mine.

The tradition of the British Royal Family using Welsh gold wedding rings was carried into its 88th year during the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on 29th April, 2011.
