Hiraeth is a word without direct translation but I suppose is a feeling of longing for your homeland. I’m only over in Ireland but being able to wear a wedding ring mined from the Welsh ground is so special! Welsh gold is no-longer mined and is finite. This makes my ring completely priceless!
My 100% Welsh gold ring was ordered with ease and I was kept updated with the progress of the process right from the very start. Payment was easy (instalments helped!!) and it was delivered without fuss. I couldn’t recommend these guys enough!!
Diolch o galon!

“Incredible craftsmanship and exceptional service. Thank you so much for all your help designing the most beautiful wedding ring, we appreciate the lengths you went to sending it to us in Australia”

“My mother had her wedding ring made from a large lump gold my parents found in Central America when they were living there. I loved the idea, but could not think of how to get something as special as that for my wife to be. Wales I knew, is the only place in the British Isles still with gold. I did some research and found that www.welshgold.com are the only people I could find to make something 100% pure. We discussed the cost, and whether 5% or 10% Welsh Gold was good enough, but we ended up with what I wanted. A beautiful 100% Welsh Gold wedding ring. Sincerely, Jacqueline and Rupert”
“To Geoffrey and Liz and everyone else that shared in the fabrication of my wife’s Welsh gold wedding band I just want to say thank you! From the beginning and our early communications about design, size, composition, etc. all the way until the end with shipping and delivery, the process was seamless. Even the transferring of funds (I’m in the USA) which I think could have been complicated, Geoffrey made easy. He also kept me informed of every step of the process.
Most importantly the ring is beautiful! It is flawless and created specifically to the design and standards I gave Geoffrey.
My wife’s mom is Welsh and my wife holds everything Welsh with great great sentimentality. This ring will have a special place in her heart for the rest of her life.
Once again I would like to thank Welsh Gold for everything they have done to create this very special, beautiful ring. I would highly recommend them.”

As a “Welshman abroad” (in England!) I was always attracted by the idea of having my wedding ring made of pure Welsh Gold – so that I could carry around a bit of the homeland with me.
I did a fair amount of research and came across Aur Cymru and am so delighted that I did.
The service from the first contact by email through the careful conversations about understanding what I wanted, to my personal visit to the very talented and experienced goldsmith to see progress and have a final fitting to receiving my ring was, without doubt, exemplary.
I felt in good hands throughout and had no concerns around whether my idea would be realised, or that I was getting good value. The team was clear to point out the technicalities of gathering and working with this very precious material, and was very reassuring on how I would be able to get a ring made of 100% pure Welsh Gold – an offer than none of the other companies was able to offer.
To say I was delighted when I saw the photograph of the finished ring, and when I received it by secure post a few days later is a total understatement. The ring is a thing of real beauty and the design is absolutely true to my requirements – I can honestly say that my expectations were exceeded.
And very importantly, although Welsh Gold is rare and understandably more expensive than just “normal gold”, the team at Aur Cymru has managed to make all of this happen at a price significantly lower and level of quality and purity significantly higher than their competitors.
Geoffrey at Aur Cymru was really helpful in making our wedding rings. Not only did he find our 100% ethically sourced Welsh gold, he also was able to find ethically sourced Scottish silver, which made everything perfect. He was easily contactable during the whole process and really helpful putting us together with the superb jeweller. We’re really grateful for his effort and drive during the entire process.
Thankyou for helping us make our perfect rings.

When one decides to buy a small piece of Welsh history it is for a reason. My reason was that after 30 years of marriage I wanted my Wife to put a wedding band on my hand for the first time. Of Welsh ancestry it could only ever be made of true Welsh Gold. I wanted the gold in my band to be sourced by hand the old fashioned way and crafted by Master Craftsmen & Women in traditional ways. However, other people will have their own reasons and that is why buying Welsh Gold is so special. What I can categorically confirm from my own experience of buying from Welsh Gold is that you will be treated as a client with the care and consideration that is as rare these days as the precious metal itself.

I would like to say I have been delighted with the service from Aur Cymru.
I needed to have my original wedding ring resized due to a fall, and I contacted Aur Cymru to add the 22ct Welsh gold required.
From the initial enquiry to receipt of my ring the service was excellent. Mr Brown was extremely helpful and efficient and thoroughly professional.
I chose to drop my ring off with the Aur Cymru goldsmith, who was charming, helpful and gave excellent advice with diagrams and did a superb job. The result is I have an almost 40 year old wedding ring that looks new again.
Exceptional quality and a lovely job.
Even when I asked about a certificate for my ring, it turned out I was not meant to have one as I was not having a complete ring made, I was offered one to say that I had had my ring resized with Welsh gold by Aur Cyrmu, which I am totally delighted about.
We followed up the receipt of our wedding ring with a church blessing to re-bless our ring.
The service we received from Aur Cymru was outstanding. Thank you both very much.

I have received my wedding ring from welshgold.com and am absolutely delighted with it. It Is genuinely a work of art. The quality is superb and it is something I will wear with pride. The order process was efficient and I really got the feeling that Geoff and the team would strive to achieve the ring I desired within my budget. Which they did, in fact they exceeded my expectations! I can thoroughly recommend welshgold.com to anyone requiring beautiful, bespoke Jewellery.
My fiancé and I were keen to have Welsh Gold in our wedding rings but, because we live in France, we weren’t sure where to start. Our research showed us that some welsh gold companies have moved their activities to Asia. We chose WelshGold.com because we wanted a guarantee that the gold was Welsh, fair trade and 100% made in the UK. Not China! We’re really glad we did, because the service was excellent. Our emails were replied to quickly and with all the information we needed. We have no regrets and are very pleased with our wedding bands. Thank you!

If you are thinking of having a ring made by Aur Cymru I would say go for it with no hesitation. You won’t get better service anywhere. From first contact via email, ease of payment, being kept up-to-date on progress and the arrangements made for delivery to ensure someone was available to sign.
The ring itself is exquisite and I am so pleased with it and I have a piece of welsh history.

I am a proud Welshman and when I decided to ask my (now) wife to marry me, I wanted to use some Welsh gold in the ring. I did a lot of research online with regards to Welsh gold rings, but most of the jewellersI looked at were fairly ambiguous with the percentages.
When I first spoke to Geoffrey, I felt instantly relaxed and assured. He asked relevant and pertinent questions about what I wanted and then gave me a huge list of options as to the percentages and costs available. Unlike some other quotes I received, Geoffrey’s was clear, concise and transparent.
After I picked the carat and quantity of Welsh gold, Geoffrey contacted the jeweller, who gave me a list of available diamonds. Again, this was clear and concise. I did some research online and asked for advice; at no time did I feel pressured, or forced into buying something I did not want. I decided on a high clarity, clear diamond with yellow gold; I mentioned my concerns about the reflection of the gold in the diamond affecting its colour but was immediately offered a solution.
Throughout the process, I was kept updated and informed. The ring arrived well within the timescale I had put forward and I am delighted to say that my other half said yes. The ring wasperfectly made, simple yet sophisticated.
I had no hesitation in returning to Geoffrey to make our wedding bands. Again, the information provided was excellent and advice was offered without any pressure or insistence. Our rings arrived perfectly and I am delighted to say our wedding day went without a hitch.
I would, without reservation or hesitation recommend to anybody seeking a special item of jewellery together with a friendly, professional and unpressured service.

Geoffrey, just to give you some quick feedback that the wedding ring you have made looks fantastic and fits perfectly.
Thanks for the craftsmanship ….or craft womanship sorry
Sion R has summed it up really but here goes..
We can thoroughly recommend Aur Cymru Ltd after a truly memorable, exciting and enjoyable experience. From inception to seeing our initial thoughts take shape within a very talented goldsmith’s workshop, to finally receiving our handcrafted and bespoke Welsh gold and ruby ring, we found everything and everyone to be first class. Delighted.
Laurie and Danute Hale — Derbyshire
I have just received the necklaces and I am so pleased with the results. I wanted to write and thank you for being so accommodating and so flexible. I am sure this surprise for Tom—myfiancé—will be a highlight of the day, and we will both be very proud to wear Welsh gold around our necks from our wedding day and onwards.
I can’t thank you enough for making this possible.
Michelle Napchan — London
The whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. The advice received on the options for style and size of ring were invaluable. I was regularly updated throughout the process and in no time at all I received a truly beautiful ring that I will treasure.
Thank you so much to everyone involved.
It was a pleasure engaging Geoff, Fiona and Liz to get a wedding band made that is completely unique and personal to me. Finding someone with Welsh and Scottish gold is hard enough. On top of it, they were thoughtful and engaging in taking me through the process. Meeting them in person to finalise the design and sizing was really worthwhile and seeing the hand-panned raw material is most special. It is something I will cherish for a lifetime; thank you!
