About Us | Wave Jewellery Manchester and Kendal Jewellers
Born from ideas that are just as relevant today, our central concept is that jewellery should be designed with passion and flair. It should stand out in the crowd, be as unique as the person wearing it yet stand the test of time both in quality and aesthetics. We understand people have differing tastes and jewellery is a very special and important choice - whether you are proposing to your loved one or choosing the ideal piece to complete your stunning outfit.
Paul travels the globe with co Director & wife Rachel Henderson aka jewellery designer Rachel Galley sourcing the finest, rarest diamonds in both quality and value. He has selected exquisite designer jewellery by leading and award-winning international designers and chosen the most unusual and desirable watch brands.
The first Wave boutique opened in Kendal, Cumbria in 2000 — a picturesque market town in the Lake District. This store has gone from strength to strength, moving and expanding to finally find its ideal location on Finkle Street — an impressive triple-fronted store with two further floors housing the head office and workshop.
Our success in the North West led to the opening of a city centre boutique store in the historic diamond heaven of the Royal Exchange in Manchester. The Wave experience is designed to be one of pleasure and great customer service -nothing is too much trouble for one of our experienced Wave team who will personally guide you in your purchase from advising on styles right through to beautifully gift wrapping your purchase should you desire.
We also offers a bespoke service that is second to none. If you can't find your heart's desire, we can design and make it for you - from a wedding ring to fit around an unusually-shaped engagement ring to that special gift that needs to be completely unique and personal.
