Now that the hullabaloo over Kate Middleton’s wedding gown is done with, we can turn to less a flashy, if more permanent, token of the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s troth: her wedding ring. Wartski, a Welsh family-run jewelry business founded in 1865, crafted the band from gold mined from the mountains near Anglesey in Wales, where the newlyweds will live. The gold nugget used to make the ring belonged to Queen Elizabeth II, who kept it in a vault for years before she made a gift of the precious metal to her then-engaged grandson. And of course, we don’t have to mention that other ring, a sapphire-and-diamond sparkler that William inherited from his mother, the late Princess Diana. Hats and fascinators off to the happy couple for shunning conflict stones and choosing pieces that were already in the family.

    The gold used has been in the past and is likely to be that of Clogau gold. Clogau have created a unique jewellery range and if you are a Royal Follower is definitely worth taking a look. http://www.clogau.co.uk Also the Official Wartski site is http://www.wartski.com/
