Marcella in Squirrel Hill is the best! I encourage all watch geeks to stop in to the Squirrel Hill location and take a look at all the great brands she has to offer. Rolex, Breitling, JLC, Tudor, IWC, Panerai and even Cartier! You can build an entire collection there and Marcella has the patience to help you. I’ve been a watch collector for 25 years but had never owned some of these iconic brands. She will encourage you to try on watches then give you specs, a brief history on the brand and even pull out devices to measure case thickness lug to lug dimensions and whatever else a watch geek like me may want! When I buy a timepiece from Marcella I can actually say she has earned the sale. She works very hard, she is no pressure and she knows her watches! Everyone at Orr’s is polite and knowledgeable and makes me feel welcome every time I stop in. What more can you ask for. Orr’s Rocks! Thanks again Marcella for all your help and patience. I’m already eyeing up my next timepiece! See you soon
Duane and Molly,
Ashley and I can't thank you enough for helping us pick out Ashley's engagement, diamond earrings and wedding band, resizing my grandfathers wedding band and Breitling Watch....
This is long overdue, I just wanted to reach out and extend the most gratitude I could on what an AMAZING job you and your staff did on my now fiancé’s engagement ring. It’s absolutely beautiful. The setting is amazing with great detail underneath with the stones, awesome.
My fiancé loved it. We are grinding through the wedding process as we speak, and we will definitely be in to see what we can do for wedding bands.
Thank you again to you and your whole staff!
My husband and I wanted to get a general idea of what rings would cost, so we went and visited with David at the Sewickley location. After a few weeks, my husband and I decided to get married in a small family ceremony, and went back to see David. When we met with David we asked if he could prepare the rings within a week's time, as our wedding was quickly approaching. Not only were the rings prepared in time, but they were absolutely perfect. David was so wonderful to work with, and truly made it a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend him and encourage anyone to stop by and see him. Thanks again!
Thank you for all your help with building Erin's engagement ring. We are both beyond satisfied with how it turned out and cannot wait to work with Orr's for the wedding bands. Thank you again and I've attached one of my favorite photos from the day I proposed.

For John and I, it was "Love At First Sight!". Receiving my engagement ring, continues the story of..."Love At First Sight!"
In January of 2012, we began our fairy tale life together. Now, almost five years later, our love is stronger than ever. After a couple months of working with some amazing people at Orr’s Jeweler’s in Sewickley, PA (namely, David and Paul), we have decided that now is the perfect time to share our wonderful news, we are engaged! And now, we have a GORGEOUS diamond engagement ring that signifies our LOVE for each other.
Thank you, Orr's - you do ROCK!

The back story is that Steve bought this ring for me 15 years ago and it was stolen . I turned 65 and said that of all the rings I had, this one was the most special . I asked him for it, and you did the rest. Thanks Kelly.
“I was looking for a specific engagement ring from Orr's while I was living in Erie. Jared worked with me and was super helpful in talking me through rings and helping me decide what I wanted, all the while corresponding via email and phone calls. He bent over backwards to get me what I wanted, even shipped the ring overnight to me, and was a very quick and frequent responder!
We also bought our wedding bands from Orr's (Jared again helped us out). Top notch customer service and my wife and I got beautiful rings.
“I received my chihuahua ring yesterday from my husband. I love my birthday gift! I'm a board member of the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society and I'm pleased to support Orr’s commitment to animals! Thank you!!”

Marcella was so helpful in guiding me through selecting the perfect watch as a wedding gift for my husband! Not only was she incredibly knowledgeable, but Orr's also has a great selection. My husband loves his new timepiece and my experience couldn't have been better! Very impressed and I would highly recommend!
Tyler & Mel
I can’t thank you enough for your help. The ring was perfect, the moment was perfect.
Your help throughout our entire ring buying process was outstanding. We were living in Morgantown, WV at the time and making the commute up was worth every second.
When Mel and I came in for the first time, you were so helpful and patient with us. You worked with us and kept everything within our budget. You provided us with a perspective and understanding of exactly what we were buying.
You helped Mel get an idea of what she really liked. We had a general idea of the style that Mel liked and you showed us many variations of possible styles that were all in the realm of what we were looking for. We could not have asked for a better experience that day.
When Mel and I originally discussed going to look at engagement rings, we talked about visiting several different jewelers. Orr’s was our first visit, and ended up being our only visit.
When I came back a few weeks later to buy the ring, your one-on-one help was amazing. The diamonds you showed me, that David had handpicked, fit all the priorities I had for the stone and the budget we had discussed. After we picked the perfect stone, you helped me so much with the setting. The most important aspect of the ring to me was the diamond and the setting you helped me pick could not show off that rock any better.
When it came time to prepare for the big moment a few months later, I realized couldn’t hide the ring box in my pocket all day while walking around New York City. You quickly provided me with two different-sized drawstring bags so that the ring was not loose in my pocket all day.
I proposed to Mel at the top of Rockefeller Center on the night of Sunday, July 3. With your help, Mel and I were able to have the perfect moment. (I attached some photos.)
Thank you so much for all your help. We truly could not have asked for a better experiences! We are looking forward to coming back and buying the wedding bands.
Christopher & Leann
July 4th was the date that my fiancé decided to ask me to marry him. It was an incredible moment to share with someone whom I have dated since we were 15. The ring he purchased was from Orr's in Sewickley. David was amazing! He helped my fiancé find me the perfect ring. David was always so patient and made it the most pleasurable experience. I couldn't be happier. The ring is absolutely gorgeous!
Mr. & Mrs. David Souther
"Working with Orr's was fantastic - their showroom selection gave us plenty to think about, but it was especially important to match Annie's heirloom engagement ring. The Whitehouse Brothers band perfectly matches the style - but Orr's delivered above and beyond with the exquisite color matching on the sapphires! If you didn't know better, you'd think they all came from the same stone!"
John Braun & Natasha Archer
Hello there! we've had such a lovely experience with you and your service at Orr's, I just wanted to say thank you again. it's all been so much fun and I'm in love with my engagement ring! I also wanted to share this picture I took in St. John with the ring on a conch shell. I don't know if you guys would want it for any reason or advertising, but I thought it might be cool to share how far your jewelry traveled. :)
The Future Mr. & Mrs. Manjerovic
“I walked into Orr's Jewelers in Sewickley looking for an engagement ring and really had no idea what I was getting myself into. I didn't know about the 4-C's or even what size diamond would be the best fit. Then, Jared came along and made everything much easier.
From a guys perspective, this was exactly was I was looking for. He walked me through the process and provided great customer service. Not only did he provide valuable information on the diamond buying process and important qualities to look for, he went the extra step and even gave his opinions on what to sacrifice giving my set price range. It was nice to hear what a professional would do if he were in my shoes.
After picking out a diamond, it was ready in 3 weeks (even after he ordered a special band). Coming from someone who knew nothing about diamonds and had no idea what to look for, I couldn't ask for a better experience.”
My fiancee and I bought our engagement rings from Orr's and couldn't have had a better experience. All of the staff was so welcoming of a same-sex couple and made us feel right at home and helped us design the rings of our dreams. David Strell (in Sewickley) and Iva Gleason (in Squirrel Hill) were eager to help and were so attentive throughout the whole process. Our rings took a few weeks to be made and the staff made sure to keep us in the loop on when to expect them and responded so quickly to any questions we had. An amazing experience from start to finish!
Thanks once again for all the help, it really was an enjoyable experience. Dana couldn't be happier with the outcome.
Jenna & Dave
This past monday, my boyfriend (now fiance) and I visited Orr's in Squirrel Hill seeking out an engagement ring. We had a wonderful experience thanks to Wes and the other friendly staff. Wes was more than willing to assist us in finding the perfect ring to fit our style and price range. He never lost patience with us and was determied to help us make the day as special as possible by excitingly assisting me in trying on ring after ring until we found the perfect one. We could not believe how genuine the entire staff was, as multiple workers of the store helped me make decisions and gave opinions when I needed them. We would highly recommend buying an engagement ring (or any of their other beautiful pieces of jewerly) at Orr's in Squirrel Hill. The selection was fantastic and absolutely gorgeous. After picking my engagement ring together on our four year anniversary, we are so ecstatic about being engaged and couldn't be more in love with the ring. We plan to return there to pick out our wedding bands when the time comes. Thank you to Wes and the rest of the awesome staff at Orr's!
Jessica and Mike Folk
Mike and I got engaged on St. Patrick’s Day in Pittsburgh – the same holiday which we met two years prior. Before getting engaged, Mike lived in Cleveland and I lived in Pittsburgh. Unbeknownst to me, during a few of his weekend visits, he was able to stop into Orr’s to create a gorgeous custom-made Penny Preville ring. With Jennifer’s incomparable knowledge and guidance, she helped him pick out the most perfect and beautiful diamond for my taste. He proposed at the site of our first kiss with the beautiful ring Jennifer helped him create.
We now reside in Cleveland, but enjoyed our experience with Orr’s and Jennifer so much the first time, that there was no question about where we would purchase our wedding bands from. We were able to take a day trip to Pittsburgh to discuss our options with Jennifer and ended up ordering that day. Mostly nothing about wedding planning was easy, but Orr’s made the process so simple for us. Their genuine concern for our big day helped us feel so important during such a special time in our lives.
From start to finish, Jennifer and Orr’s were there to answer all of our questions, and most importantly, provide honest and extremely accommodating customer service. We met in Pittsburgh, got engaged in Pittsburgh, and now that we no longer live here, it’s wonderful to have our rings from Pittsburgh to remind us of where our love story started. Thank you, Orr’s!
Rusty & Tiff
Since discovering Orr’s Jewelers 12 years ago, we haven’t walked into another jewelry store without comparing the selection, service and personal attention… From the Caribbean to New York City, in our mind… no one compares to Orr’s!
Brian Batdorf and Vicki Kennedy
Vicki and I have known each other for a while. Our story together started in Shady Side with a wonderful kiss just outside of a mutual friends apartment. Since that kiss we have had several dates and quite a few fond memories many of which were in the Shady Side area. I have known for over a year that Vicki was the one. I asked her father for his blessing and we made several trips to Orr's to discuss the details of THE ring. The first visit to Orr's, Jennifer made a list of all of the details that Vicki was looking for in a ring. As the ring was being made, and Vicki was not aware, I asked Jennifer to tell a little white lie in order to through Vicki off my trail, I know I am bad. Jennifer and I told Vicki that they were not able to make the perfect ring that she chose….. Then, the night that I got a call from Jennifer Powers of Orr's Jeweler's, 8/19/2015, I could barely contain my excitement. At that time, Vicki and I were having a few little frustrating moments while attempting to find a place to live together, etc. I called Vicki and said "I would like to get out a bit tonight…. Let’s go for dinner in Shady Side…" As we were walking down Walnut Street I asked Vicki to cross the street because I wanted to see something. I then turned to Vicki and said "You and I have a lot of history here in Shady Side, we started dating here, we have gone out and spent several nights together…. As a matter of fact, our first kiss was on this very spot we are standing… Since we have not been able to find the ring you want yet, I think we should look for a jeweler in Shady Side...." As Vicki turned to look for the jewelry store I was referring to, I knelt down on my knee and said to her "…or I could give you the perfect ring that you had in mind from Orr's". I think I stunned my sweet Vicki quite a bit because I had to restate the question at dinner a short while later….. "umm you didn't answer"!!!

I came to Orr's while exploring options to buy the perfect engagement ring for my beautiful future fiancée. I was treated well at the other jewelry stores in town, but my experience at Orr's far surpassed my expectations. The staff was kind and courteous. After giving them my budget, they worked with me very closely to help me find the perfect diamond, and a unique and stunning setting. They educated me about color, cut, clarity and carat weight. David and the staff made sure I got the ring I wanted above all the others, and made sure it fit into my budget. My experience with Orr's was not just a good one, it was unlike any customer service experience I've ever had. They knew I wanted to get the ring that would blow my fiancée away, and show her how much her love truly meant to me. I took her to the Mount Washington overlook on June 17th, I had flowers laid out in the shape of a heart, I got down on one knee, and she said yes!!! When she saw the ring I purchased at Orr's, it took her breath away! Now, two and a half months later, she still is in awe of the ring. It truly is amazing! Thank you Orr's jewelers for helping me buy the perfect ring for her!
Mike and Meghan Spezialetti
The staff was so helpful and accommodating. They helped me pick out a beautiful Sapphire engagement ring, which is my wife’s favorite stone and one that she had mentioned she would love as an engagement ring. I didn't know what i was looking for and they (it was about 3 people collectively, led me through the process)
I proposed during a trip to New York City, which is our favorite place. After looking for weeks for a spot that would be fitting, I settled on Central Park because I knew it would always be a place we could visit (hotels and restaurants open and close over time). My wife loves the story of Romeo and Juliet and stumbled upon an article about a statue of Romeo and Juliet that is behind the Shakespeare Theatre in the Park. After a 20 minute subway ride and getting lost for another 20 mins, all while trying to keep her occupied without spoiling what we were looking for, we finally found it. I knelt down in front of the passing crowds and popped the question. After we had champagne and ice cream at Tavern on the Green I've attached a pic of the statue we took afterwards.
Karissa Millick and Michael Quinlan
Michael and I both work downtown, so after work one Friday, we were showing off some popular Pittsburgh sights to his family. (They were visiting from out of town.) We got to The Point and decided to throw pennies in the fountain. He asked what my wish was. He then said, "My wish is that she'll say, 'Yes!'" He got down on his knee, and here we are preparing for our life together!
A couple months earlier, we had decided to ring shop together because I wanted something unique. I was nervous about this "ruining the surprise," but Michael totally shocked me that day after work! We are so happy we shopped together and felt like we had our own little secret time to celebrate before the big engagement came along. Janene at Orr's helped us through the whole process and really made sure we were both happy with my ring. It is rose gold and couldn't be more perfect. Every time we stop in the store now, we are greeted by friendly faces, and the entire team is so helpful! We chose Orr's because of the great experience I had there buying a custom Heather Moore necklace for a friend, and I know we'll be back!
Joanne Taylor and Paul Pirko
I just wanted to let you in on the good news. Paul proposed on Saturday at the LeMont on Mt. Washington in Pittsburgh the day before his birthday. What a fabulous gift I received. Everyone is going crazy over this stunning ring! Thank you and Orr's Jewelers for taking the time and customizing the most perfect ring and finding the best stone ever. I absolutely love it!
