Allen stumbled upon the jewelry business as a teenager, when he befriended the owner of a jewelry shop in the mall. He worked in the shop through high school and eventually became friends with one of the store’s sales representatives. Upon graduation, he transitioned to the wholesale side of the business while attending North Carolina State University. He also spent time in a watch repair store, learning about the inner workings of high-end timepieces.
Allen wholesaled watches and diamonds for 25 years. Then, aware of the growing demand for luxury watches and quality gemstones, he decided it was time to make another move. In 2009, he opened his own shop, A Diamond In Time, in I’On village in Mount Pleasant. After a few years he realized that most clients want custom, unique pieces. In 2019, he decided to close the I'On store front and opened a boutique space in downtown Charleston at the Ashley Marina. In this space he works by appointment only so he can focus on giving each customer individual attention to create their unique piece.
"I am so thankful for Allen at A Diamond in Time, who helped me design the engagement ring of my (now) fiancé's dreams. I knew absolutely nothing about diamonds or rings but Allen took the time to go through everything with me. You can tell he really knows what he's talking about and was super patient with me throughout the process. I would highly recommend A Diamond in Time!"
