Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Alistair Diamonds is a private jewelry service that specializes in engagement rings and wedding bands. Owner and jeweler Jonathan Pottow is passionate about creating a curated and concierge experience for each and every client. He will work closely with you to design and craft a unique statement piece that will forever serve as a symbol of your love.
Jonathan’s fascination with jewelry was sparked by his grandfather, who collected fine antiques. Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, he is committed to sourcing conflict free diamonds and does so using the Kimberly process. After emigrating to the United States in 2010, Jonathan attended the Gemological Institute of America and began his professional career. It was while working in the diamond industry that he noticed a need for more retailers who put clients above profit margins. He started his boutique company in order to provide a service that is dedicated to customer satisfaction.
Jonathan brings his eye for quality and practicality to every ornament that he creates. Whether he’s designing an engagement ring or repurposing a family heirloom into a necklace, his style embodies timeless sophistication. When you work with Alistair Diamonds, the process will begin with a phone consultation, during which Jonathan will assess your aesthetic and budget. He will then carefully select gemstones to your tastes before handcrafting your design. While the company is based in North Carolina, Jonathan can consult and ship anywhere in the United States.
