Alistair R

Alistair R is an independent premium jewellery workshop based in Northern Ireland.

Through our emphasis on simple, timeless design we handcraft uniquely beautiful pieces imbued with history. Every one of our designs is made by us and hallmarked in the UK and aims to capture the alchemy and unique character of our hand selected gem and semi precious stones.

Alistair Wright set up Alistair R in 2009. Inspired by a set of moonstone and gold cufflinks, a family heirloom of timeless quality, and a lifelong interest in gemstones and geology, Alistair left the corporate world behind to train in stone carving and goldsmithing, launching initially with a range of cufflinks. It was not long before he was asked to incorporate his designs into necklaces and other jewellery, and so the range has grown, always reflecting our passion for natural materials and the desire for simple, striking and uncluttered design.

Using ethically sourced rough stone alongside stone we find in the wild we carve simple forms to show the beauty of the natural material. All of our jewellery is put together by hand and finished in our Northern Irish workshop.
