Fit for Royalty: Clogau


Clogau is a welsh jewellery brand which creates original hand-finished jewellery, inspired by the natural beauty of Wales and an esteemed association with British royalty.

For 100 years, many of the Royal family’s wedding rings have been crafted with gold from the Clogau St David’s mine in North Wales – the same rare Welsh gold which is used today in every piece of Clogau jewellery. Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana, Princess Catherine and Queen Camilla are among those to wear wedding rings created using gold from the mine. 

With no past experience of brand building PR, Clogau brought Smoking Gun on board to showcase the brand across national and lifestyle media – positioning Clogau as a trusted and trend-led name. 

Smoking Gun also supported the brand at a regional level, driving consumers to its bricks and mortar stores.


Using a range of products, calendar dates and social trends, Smoking Gun identified relevant news and feature angles to develop into a series of press stories for the media. 

Examples included:

  • Newsjacking Wimbledon by sharing comment on the ‘Tennis Bracelet’ trend, boosting awareness of Clogau’s product range across lifestyle titles


  • Compiling essential tips and tricks from Clogau’s jewellery expert for taking your best-loved pieces on holiday and how to protect them


  • Targeting gift guides for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Black Friday, Christmas, and more 


  • Compiling product guides in line with jewellery trends across TikTok and Instagram, as well as trending TV shows on streaming platforms


  • Working reactively to draft numerous ‘get the look’ fashion guides using Clogau products on the back of Royal looks making the news
