Who Are Guy Wakeling Jewellery? 20th April 2018 – Posted in: News – Tags: , , , ,

Now I’ve been banging on a lot lately about our new website, our new jewellery ranges and all the other brand new things that Guy Wakeling Jewellery has on offer – and you’ve been very patient with me loyal blog readers – but I don’t want you to think that all of these brand new projects means that we’ve lost sight of everything that has made Guy Wakeling Jewellery what it is today! Far from it; in fact, the ‘traditional’ side of the business is actually doing better than ever.

What Is Guy Wakeling Jewellery?


Guy Wakeling Jewellery is a family run business that was set up several years ago, with the aim of providing our customers with exquisite, handmade bespoke jewellery, as well as providing our family with a means of making a living out of something that we are passionate about.


With a father and brother who are also in the trade, Guy comes from a long line of bespoke jewellery makers and this is a craft that is truly in his blood. For more than 25 years, Guy has been making the most amazing jewellery and his passion and experience shows in his work. In 2009, Guy set up Guy Wakeling Jewellery to enable him to spend his days doing what he loves and, since then, the business has gone from strength to strength.

Who Are Guy Wakeling Jewellery?


Our business might be called Guy Wakeling Jewellery, but it’s not just Guy who keeps this business going! We call ourselves a family business because that’s genuinely what we are; yes, Guy is the only one amongst us who is a master craftsman, but every member of our family plays their role, even if not all of them actually sit behind the counter!


Although I (Katie Wakeling) have been playing my part behind the scenes for years now, Guy and I took the decision to make use of the expertise that I have been accumulating and expand our business; all the new ventures that we have embarked upon are not just my ideas, although they are all my domain!


Of course, none of this would be possible – in fact, none of it would even have happened – if it wasn’t for our wider family as a whole. Our amazing children, Jacob and Martha, are as much a part of the business as Guy and I; they are our inspiration and motivation and they make us strive to make this family business the best it can possible be. On top of that, our parents and siblings have all played their part too, and their continued support deserves to be credited as much anyone else’s input.


What Does Guy Wakeling Jewellery Do?

As I have already touched upon, since the start of 2015, Guy Wakeling Jewellery actually does quite a lot of things; we have a new website comprising a brand new e-commerce store, where we sell our handpicked range of bought-in jewellery, and we also have our brand new workshop and showroom, where we not only also sell our swish and stylish jewellery but where our customers can also watch Guy at work and see in action the love and care he puts into his work.


But the core thing that Guy Wakeling Jewellery does – the thing that we’ve been doing for over 25 years now – is be the best bespoke family jewellers that we can possibly be. And that doesn’t just mean that we make handmade jewellery to both our own and our customer’s designs, but we can also repair your broken jewellery or breathe new life into your old and worn family treasures. More than that, one of the most popular services that we offer is renovation, so if you have a piece of great sentimental value that you no longer wear – whether it be out-dated or it no longer fits – then we can transform it into something beautiful that you won’t want to take off.


What Can Guy Wakeling Jewellery Do For You?


One of the things that we pride ourselves on is our customer service; being a small business, we often get to know all of our customers personally and this means that we have a good idea of what pleases them. We also like to think that we’re much more friendly than your average jeweller; we’re not snobby and we don’t look down our noses at anyone. Everyone is welcome at Guy Wakeling Jewellery, whether you’ve got a fortune or a fiver!
