'Lilibet' jewellery collection revealed in sweet tribute for coronation
King Charles' coronation is fast approaching, and there's a number of ways that royal fans can mark the occasion personally.
In one special royal tribute, jewellery brand Clogau has launched some limited collections in honour of the landmark royal event – and one of which has been named in tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth.
Royal fans may recognise the name Clogau, since it refers to the Clogau St David's Mine where precious Welsh gold is sourced for royal wedding rings – including that of the Duchess of Sussex and the Princess of Wales.

The jewellery house has launched three collections to mark the coronation. 'Lilbet', in memory of the Queen, 'Tree of Life Delphinium', in tribute to King Charles' favourite flower and 'Lily of the Valley', which was known to be Queen Elizabeth's own favourite bloom.
True to form, the jewels are made using quantities of Welsh gold sourced from the same mine as many of the royal family’s wedding rings for over 100 years.
Sweetly, the Lilibet collection features a wheat motif inspired by the late monarch's coronation gown – which was embroidered with wheat and olive branches, which are symbols of prosperity and peace.

The Tree of Life Delphinium collection features amethysts to reflect the shade of King Charles' favourite plant, while the Lily of the Valley range features freshwater pearls to symbolise the woodland flower.
The use of pure Welsh gold from the Clogau St David's Mine in royal wedding jewellery dates back to 1923, when Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, later the Queen Mother, had her wedding ring made from a nugget from the mine on her marriage to the Duke of York (later King George VI).
Before that, Welsh gold was used in the official regalia for the investiture of Edward VIII as Prince of Wales in 1911.
King Charles' beloved Prince of Wales signet ring is also believed to have been crafted from Welsh gold – a piece that is particularly sentimental to him, he has worn it consistently since the 1970s.
