Royal Wedding Rings

The Queen Mother back in 1923 began a tradition regarding royal wedding rings.  Clogau St David's mine in Bontddu in North Wales supplied the nugget of gold, from which the royal wedding ring is made.

To date the wedding rings of the Queen, Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret, The Princess Royal, Diana the Princess of Wales all had the gold for their rings supplied by the mine, it will be interesting to see whether Kate Middleton also has her Royal Wedding ring made from this rare Welsh gold.
