Tell me a little bit about business!
Orr’s Jewelers is a third-generation, family owned and operated jewelry store with two locations in Pittsburgh: one in the heart of Squirrel Hill and one in downtown Sewickley. Our inventory of loose diamonds is the largest in the area; each is hand-selected by the owner and is independently certified. We have an extensive bridal collection, and we love custom designing rings to fit every style and budget. We’ve been a trusted part of our clients’ lives for generations and nothing brings us more joy than helping our clients celebrate the milestones and happy events in their lives. We’re so excited to welcome you to our Orr’s family!
What makes your work unique?
We love diamonds of all sizes and shapes! We have a SERIOUSLY extensive inventory of loose diamonds, and our couples love coming into one of our stores and spending time getting educated on the four 4Cs of diamond buying with one of our diamond specialists, and then designing their dream ring around the perfect stone for them!
What is your ideal client like?
Our ideal client knows that the jewelry buying process should be fun! We love taking the time to educate our clients, answering their questions, making them feel comfortable, and then becoming part of their lives together. We are happy to make the process as simple or as involved as you would like. There are no dumb questions or silly requests.
What types and styles of rings and jewelry do you carry?
We have a huge selection of rings, as well as other jewelry and watches. We have you covered for everything, including gifts for your wedding party, spouse, future anniversaries, and more! Many of our couples decide to choose the diamond and the setting separately, and then we build the ring to fit the diamond they select. Others fall in love with one of the rings that we have in stock, including vintage rings, unique diamond rings, and rings with alternative center stones like sapphires.
Do you offer additional services, such as custom design, engraving, resizing, or appraisal?
We do! We have a jeweler on-site at our store in Squirrel Hill, so almost all of the maintenance on your ring can be handled in-house. We will always provide and update appraisals on any pieces purchased at Orr’s, and are always happy to clean and check your ring when you’re in the area. Additionally, we frequently custom-design pieces from engagement rings to wedding bands, including reusing and repurposing family stones into new pieces.
Do couples need an appointment?
No appointment is needed, although we are always happy to make one. We are also happy to do virtual appointments, either as initial consultations or for the entire process.
