I have always wanted a sapphire and diamond ring. When my mom passed away, she left my sister and I each a ring. We decided to sell them and have a special one made for me. After talking to Daniel, he made me a most wonderful and beautiful ring. I am grateful to him for his help and patience with me. If anyone wants a wonderful diamond, go to Orion! Thanks Daniel!
Just wanted to say thank you to Daniel for guiding me in my first engagement ring shopping experience. Daniel was very patient with me during the whole process. He worked within my budget, and answered all questions that I had along the way. My proposal went great, and I definetly have Daniel to thank! I will be a repeat customer for many years to come!!
Galleria Area, Houston
A few years ago I recevied a diamond pendant that I never wore due to a complicated setting that I didn’t like. I sent the piece to Daniel hoping he could re-design it to my taste. Essentially, he had to re-work the entire pendant. His design ideas are fantastic. He paid attention to every detail, contacting me at every step to make sure that I was satisfied. I just recevied the completed piece and I am thrilled with the result. The quality and workmanship is outstanding. Needless to say, I am extremely happy and will be contacting Orion again for my next jewelry project. They really are a great company to work with.
When searching around for the perfect ring I knew I wanted something special that no one else would have and I also knew I would want to be treated with special care, that was EXACTLY what my fiancee and I got when we stepped in to ORION!! I LOVE Daniel and what he and his father represent! He went above and beyond what I could have expected and did everything possible to make sure my special day and ring was everything I could have imagined! He showed me many different designs, wasn’t pushy, very fast at responding to emails, and EXTREMELY helpful. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my ring, it is a one of a kind, and a GREAT VALUE for the size of it! We could NEVER have gotten a ring like this at a typical jewelery store in the mall (especially not at this price)! We plan to use and recommend Daniel for years to come! Thanks again 🙂
I got married seven years ago, and I wish I knew about this place before. I bought my wife’s ring at the retail store in the mall, and after visiting Orion Fine Jewelry, I knew I overpaid for a small inferior diamond. At Orion, I was able to buy my wife a bigger sized diamond she had always wanted, at a fraction of the price I would have paid at those retail stores. I can honestly say I will never buy jewelry, especially diamonds, from a retail store again.
Many thanks to Daniel for helping us create the perfect engagement ring. His expertise with custom ring design and diamond selection was top notch! The ring he created was exactly what my fiancé (now wife) had envisioned. Orion will be my exclusive jeweler in the years to come. Thanks again! Jason B.
Dealing with Orion Jewelry is a pleasure. It is a Father-Son type of operation, and you can see the difference between Orion, and typical big name National Jewelers. Orion is definitely tops in service, knowledge, and of course very importantly, in price. They are the best even among the wholesalers. In dealing with Daniel, I could tell the difference between dealing with an employee and an owner. So far I’ve only had a few small dealings and repairs with Orion. But I’ve referred some friends for larger purchases, and everyone of them has thanked me. For a great price, wonderful service, and really helpful knowledge, I would highly recommend Orion to anyone. Try them out and you will see.
Dan, Thanks for all your help. I was pressed for time and you made my engagement ring shopping ideal. There was a relaxed and educational atmosphere. Thanks for the crash course in the various characteristics of diamonds and the great one on one customer care. My fiance and I couldn’t be happier!
Daniel, I just wanted to say thanks for helping me pick out the perfect ring for my fiancé. She loves it and told me it is exactly what she wanted. The proposal could not have gone better. You made the process easy and enjoyable. Thanks again for everything!
I worked with Daniel to create a custom pendant using a diamond my mother had given me as a wedding gift. He replicated a pendant that I found on the internet and customized it to fit the stone. He was extremely responsive via e-mail and phone. It is very clear that customer satisfaction is their top priority. In the end, the pendant was created on-time, within my budget, and was exactly what I envisioned. I wore the necklace on my wedding day. Now I have a family heirloom that I can’t wait to pass onto my daughter one day.
I had been searching high and low around Houston and on the internet for a diamond bezel for my wife’s rolex for our 10th wedding anniversary. I stumbled across Orion Jewelry and told Daniel what I was looking for in a bezel. He overwhelmed me with options (in a good way) and helped me through the process. I settled on Orion because of their expertise, quality jewelry, and customer service. I brought my wife’s watch in and within 10 minutes the watch was cleaned and the new bezel was installed. Needless to say my wife was surprised and absolutely loves her new bezel. I will be using Orion from now on for all of my jewelry needs.
I found Orion Fine Jewelry by cluelessly wandering the giant jewelry complex where it resides near the Galleria. I was looking for a pearl engagement ring (white gold band, with minor diamond ornamentation) for my now fiancee but really had no idea how to go about doing that. After narrowing down the shops to those willing to do custom work that had expertise in pearls, I decided on Orion. It was the combination of my sales person’s (Daniel) helpful and friendly demeanor and the wide variety of options that won me over. He explained my options to me, and he eventually let me take a beautiful ring he had in stock, promising that I could switch it out for whatever my special lady wanted. We ended up taking him up on that offer (for reasons that had nothing at all to do with the quality of the in-stock ring) and had him design a beautiful and slightly unconventional pearl ring. We both love the design, and Daniel worked with us every step of the way to make our experience pleasant. It could have been a great deal more stressful to design a ring having never done it before, but the result was a shining success.
Working with Daniel, from out of state I might add, has not only been professional and personal, he has made the entire experience pain free and simple. I contacted Daniel, through the recommendation of a friend that recently purchased through Orion, about a month ago with a very short notice of my time frame, and he literally has done all of the work for me to build the perfect ring for my budget, with not only the largest stone, but the best quality stone for my needs. He has taken personal ownership of my project and ran with it, never sacrificing quality, or customer service and satisfaction. To top all of this, he has been the best and most reasonably priced diamond vender I have dealt with hands down! Thank you Daniel and Orion Fine Jewelry.
Let me first start out by thanking you, Daniel! I took my girlfriend (now fiance) to Daniel’s shop with what I would label as high anxiety. This was foreign turf to me and I had no idea what to expect. Right from the first moment when we entered the shop I felt a release on the anxiety meter due to the privacy factor. You could tell Daniel was willing to spend however long was necessary for my fiance to find the setting and stone that felt right. Stephanie had a few ideas in mind before we arrived that day, but nothing at all concrete. It didn’t seem to take that long before we were deep in the process of designing something very unique and special. I catch Stephanie looking at her ring every day as it turned out simply perfect! Thank you!
I ventured into the large signless building on Richmond for an appointment with one of Orion’s competitors. It was then that I discovered there are many diamond retailers & wholesalers in this bldg. I just walked into Orion and explained I was looking for a princess cut stone around 1 ct, and Daniel immediately showed me several nice stones that were appropriate. One in particular caught my eye, and having done my research and price comparisson in the building, I knew Daniel was giving me a good deal. The ring sits on my fiancee’s finger now, and she loved it! Thanks for a good deal and a pleasant experience Daniel!
Daniel, Thank you so much for the superb job you did on my engagement ring. It is absolutely breathtaking! Even after designing it ourselves and seeing a computer-generated graphic picture of it, the ring is so much more gorgeous in person. The intensity at which it sparkles is absolutely remarkable! Even on cloudy days and in the darkness, it still shines. I have gotten many compliments, not just in its beauty and also its uniqueness 🙂 Thank you again for all your help on this. We are very glad to have found you, a jeweler that we can trust in the long-term and someone we can go to regarding this purchase as well as future ones we will make 🙂 Looking forward to seeing you when we place our orders for the wedding ring!
Hi Daniel – I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you so much for helping Jared and I design and create the most beautiful engagement ring! Jared proposed on my birthday Thursday night and the ring turned out perfectly. The setting was exactly what I had imaged and the center stone is absolutely breathtaking. Thank you for handling my neurotic attention to detail in stride and with great professionalism throughout the whole process. We truly appreciate you being part of this special occasion. You’ll be our jeweler for life!
Jared and Krae
