The romance of Welsh Gold

Heart has been to see where the Royal wedding rings are being made

Welsh gold has been used in Royal weddings since 1923 and has been worn by Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen Mother, and the late Princess Diana.

The rings for next month's wedding has been sourced from Clogau St David's mine in North Wales.

Ben Roberts, Managing Director, told Heart there is something romantic about Welsh gold:

"It's something different, it's something you can talk about, and its probably the reason why our product is so desirable because you can give it to somebody and that someone can tell their friends why they bought it, where they bought it, and even dare I say it how much it cost."

Prince William has said that he won't be wearing his ring after he ties the knot on April 29th, something which Ben can understand: "I like a watch, various other luxuries, cuff links, but a wedding band I just find awkward to wear."
