The faces of the Clogau brand

Claire Jones - Clogau Ambassador

“Clogau is a business firmly rooted in the culture of Wales and inspired by our landscape. It is also successfully growing a strong international reputation. I think we’re a great fit, and I’m very proud to be the face of their new Heartstrings collection.”

Claire Jones

Internationally renowned concert harpist and former Official Harpist to His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales

In January 2012, Clogau announced an exciting new collaboration with Claire Jones, one of the most celebrated young classical harpists in the world today and in demand on concert platforms and record studios worldwide.

From 2007 until 2010 Claire was the Official Harpist to HRH The Prince of Wales, making her the longest serving Royal harpist to date.  During this appointment, Claire regularly performed for the Royal Family and their distinguished guests at the Royal Palaces.

In April 2011, on the day of the Royal wedding, she performed for the newly married Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at their wedding reception in Buckingham Palace.

During the day Claire wore an exclusive white gold and diamond version of the Clogau Royal Roses collection.

Managing Director for Clogau, Ben Roberts said:

“Clogau is proud to work with an artist so committed to the preservation of Welsh heritage, high standards of excellence and global expansion; values and vision that also make Clogau one of the most successful jewellery brands in the UK and overseas”

Brand Manager, Sonia Menezes adds:

“We see this as a long-term partnership with Claire and it’s a two way thing. It's one of our most exciting collaborations to date. We plan to work on a variety of projects with Claire. One of the first and most important will be to help Claire and Chris create some very special wedding rings, forged in Wales.”

In early 2012 we began a harp inspired campaign featuring Claire, to tie in with the launch of the ‘Heartstrings’ collection, beautiful harp & heart themed pieces in yellow gold and silver, touched with our signature rose gold.

Beautiful photographs showing Claire with her Salvi Harp, wearing the Heartstrings jewellery were taken at a recent photo shoot in Fonmon Castle, South Glamorgan. They form the centrepiece for the marketing campaign along with a film currently being made which follows a month in Claire’s life as she jets around to perform in concerts across the world. The collection was launched at Spring Fair 2012 in Birmingham in early February.
