What retailers are saying about Clogau
Emma Saunders, Retail Business Development Manager:
“We continue to enjoy developing a licensed range of jewellery with Clogau in association with Historic Royal Palaces.
The collections are proving to be very successful both here and internationally and the airline listings have served the dual purpose of driving sales and raising awareness of the Historic Royal Palaces's prestigious brand. The Kensington collection inspired by the palace gates has developed into a key range and the design embodies grace, beauty and romance. Also the accompanying editorial is a great platform for telling people about the provenance that inspired the jewellery as well as giving further understanding about the organisation. We also hope this encourages people to visit our magnificent palaces!
We look forward to continuing our licensing partnership with Clogau and developing further new and wonderful collections together.”
Jason Allum, Allum & Sidaway:
“As long standing supporters of Clogau Gold, and due to the success of the brand at our Dorchester store, we recently decided to invest further with Clogau by adding the very latest in shop in shop units in both Salisbury and Ringwood. The customer service and support we have received has been second to none, and the more contemporary designs and styles of the newer pieces has helped firmly establish the brand and our relationship with Clogau Gold. I would not hesitate to recommend Clogau to prospective partners, especially with the forthcoming jubilee celebrations highlighting Clogau as the gold of royalty.”
Mark Warr, David Christopher ltd:
“Clogau Gold has always been a great brand and had a strong vision , now with the shop in shop and new window displays we've seen sales increasing year on year , the service offered by Clogau one of the best in the jewellery industry.”
Peter, Peter Jackson:
“We have been dealing with Clogau for six months now and find the company an absolute pleasure to do business with. They are friendly and efficient and nothing is too much trouble. The first half year of sales figures has been most encouraging.”
