Welsh Gold

Welsh Gold Jewellery from Kelvin JenkinsAuthentic Welsh Gold jewellery. Designed and made by myself in my studio in rural Mid Wales. I am proud to have been a specialist in Welsh Gold since 1985 . I now guarantee a full 5% of the very rare Welsh Gold, in my jewellery. This is a very much higher proportion than used by most other companies.

In 1985 my company became one of only three licenced to work in pure unmixed Welsh Gold – one of the rarest metals in the world. My gold came from the famous Gwynfynydd goldmine near Dolgellau, one of the great 19th century mines which had just been re-opened at that time.  I feel very privileged to have been able to work with Welsh gold for almost thirty years.

When the mine finally closed in the late 1990’s I had to decide how best to use my remaining stock of Welsh gold, and decided to concentrate on producing jewellery containing an exact stated proportion of Welsh Gold. The carefully-measured five percent of Welsh gold that I incorporate in my jewellery is very much more than the unspecified “touch” that some manufacturers mention. I am a one-man studio working to produce a limited range of high-quality jewellery, hand-made in my own workshop in Wales. Besides my standard range, I enjoy making one-off pieces and I also work to commission.

After testing and hallmarking at the Edinburgh Assay Office each item is stamped with my unique set of marks, guaranteeing the proportion of Welsh Gold it contains. Each piece is accompanied by an attractive numbered and signed certificate of authenticity.

I wish to emphasise that most of the so-called “Welsh Gold” offered for sale by other companies actually contains only a very tiny and unstated percentage. It is a sad fact that most “Welsh Gold” jewellery on sale online and in shops is made in China, not Wales. Mine is all made in Wales, by hand by myself, and the Welsh Gold content is specified and guaranteed.
