What Is Jewelry Appraisal?

A jewelry appraisal is more than the monetary value of the jewelry. Many people often get mixed up, trying to understand how jewelry appraisal works. Appraisal involves determining jewelry’s value after that comparing its value with insurances. Determining the cost of jewelry is paramount before proceeding with the appraisal process. Appraisal also requires a detailed report about jewelry’s attributes.

Application of Appraisals

While appraisals primarily provide insurance for jewels, they also enable our customers to find out the value of wealth meant for:

  • Divorce purposes
  • Value of estates
  • Resale purpose
  • Liquidation purposes

Divorce Cases

Finding the real value of wealth meant for division during divorce cases may be difficult. However, with Mimi’s Jewelry, customers can comfortably figure out how much property or assets each party can get. Moreover, state laws play significant roles during division.

 

Value of Estates

Appraisals enable us to figure out the value of the estate tax. State or Federal Codes apply while ascertaining the estate tax. Tax issues are crucial; this means that careful determination done by skillful experts is key to evading sanctions by authorities. Mimi’s Jewelry assures experienced evaluation of estate value tax.

Resale

Resale appraisals allow you to sell your jewelry, thereby providing more information about market value, liquidation value, or the replacement value.

 

Liquidation Purpose

Liquidation enhances the quick sale of your jewelry. It also gives you the opportunity of dictating the amount you wish and can be in written or verbal form. 

As mentioned earlier, ascertaining jewelry enables you to appraise the jewelry quickly. The method of figuring out the value of jewelry is referred to us jewelry grading. However, it is not the way of concluding the exact qualities of the jewelry.

Jewel Grading

Jewel grading requires knowledge of gemologists. It also requires state-of-art equipment such as laboratories, and Orange County provides everything you need. From the AGS, GSI, IGI to GIA, these laboratories have licensed personnel and equipment to evaluate your jewelry value. Mimi’s Jewelry also prides itself as home to experienced gemologists ready to work on your jewel.

 

Grading Report

The appraisal process needs a good grading report. It enables our customers to make better choices about how the value of their jewelry coincides with the cost of insurances, estate properties, or divorce agreements. Mimi’s Jewelry strives to offer the best grading services to enable our esteemed customers to reap highly from the jewelry industry.

Importance of Having Your Jewelry Appraised by Mimi’s Jewelry

Doing a jewelry appraisal is as vital as coming up with an investment. If you possess a piece of expensive jewelry, Mimi’s Jewelry suggests that you appraise it to experience the benefits. A jewelry appraisal is a step towards insuring your precious jewelry. Insuring your treasure protects its value in case of theft, misplacement, or damage. Additionally, the appraisal should be done as soon as possible.

 

 

Benefits of Appraising your Jewel Early

Failure to appraise your jewelry early enough puts you at risk of reduced insurance benefits. Jewelry prices vary from time to time, and as years go by, this leads to decreased insurance benefits after estimating your jewel’s value. Be sure to appraise your jewelry not later than five years. We encourage you to visit us as soon as possible for faster appraisal services.

Integrity in Appraising

Getting the most trusted appraiser is one of the most crucial processes in the jewelry industry. An honest jewelry appraiser guarantees you huge benefits. Mimi’s Jewelry aims at giving our customers candid reports about their jewelry to enable them to harvest bountifully.

 

 

Diamond Appraisals

Diamond is one of the most valuable jewelry in the world. Possessing a diamond gives you the opportunity of getting the most benefits when you insure it. In the jewelry industry, the treatment of diamonds as separate jewels is an everyday norm. 

Diamonds receive the most authentic grading. At Mimi’s Jewelry, we use the 4C’s, which include color, clarity, cut, and carat to grade diamonds, revealing its exact, precise, and real attributes. If your diamond’s 4C’s rank highly, the market value will similarly be high. Our company highly ranks diamonds, and we strive to offer the best diamond appraisal in orange county.

Our Client’s Love Us!

  •   David at Mimi's was super honest, he quoted me the highest on buying my ex wife's wedding ring back. I went to the original builder of the ring and he offered less and wasn't as honest and upfront as David was. Will for sure be coming back for life and have earned my business for the future.

    Highly recommend

      I purchased my engagement ring from NK Jewelers in Fountain Valley but when one of the diamonds fell off, I brought it back to them. Instead of trying to help me get the stone replaced, they tried to sell me a new setting for $1200. They  told me it probably wouldn't be possible to replace because they don't make this style anymore and it would cost too much to replace so it would be easier to buy another ring. I wanted time to consider my options so after leaving NK, I went to Mimi's. Mimi's sent it in for a quote and it came back at $280. They replaced the diamond in less than 2 weeks! Mimi's provided great service, honesty, and reasonably priced. I'm buying my jewelry from Mimi's from now on.

      I don't even know how to start off this review.  I'm so happy I found this local family owned jeweler.  I was looking for a place to sell my gold coins and also to resize my wedding band.  I sent Dave an email and he responded very fast.  Dave greeted me, and was friendly and was straight down to business.  Dave gave me the most competitive price out of all the other jewelry buyers in the area.  

    Just ultimately beyond happy with their services. This is a true family business that makes you feel more like a long time friend than just a customer. They've got a great rating for a reason. 5 stars all the way!  1000% recommending this place to friends and family and anyone that will listen.  Thank you Mimi's Jewelry for all the help and I'll definitely be back in the future.

  •   I am not a jewelry person. I begrudgingly wear a fitness tracker ring because it's less cumbersome than the sort that goes on your wrist. But I found myself going to Mimi's because while traveling through the area for a wedding, my mother said she needed to replace a watch battery. I made some calls.

    At first, I was a bit put off that when I inquired about a battery replacement, i was told I'd have to leave the watch over night. But the price was right and Mimi's location was next to where I'd be so I decided to go in to hand off the watch. Once in the store, my mom resisted handing off her watch and asked if someone could just take the time to replace the battery on the spot. We were told all battery replacements take place at the end of the day when the person does them all at once. Fine. We could pick up the watch the next day.
    The woman who was on duty was very nice.

    The next day, we came in to pick up the watch on our way to the wedding. The woman working (different than the day before) asked for my mom's receipt. She didn't have it handy so the woman looked for it by her name. All in all, it was a short, pleasant transaction.

    We were charged $15 for the battery and labor, but given a $1.50 discount as new customers. That was a nice surprise.

    In the car, my mom said to me, "I really liked the person who served us." I laughed, saying, "All she did was hand you your watch, mom." But my mom said, "Yes, but she was kind and she smiled with even with her eyes. Her voice was confident and respectful. She made you feel attended to." I couldn't disagree.

    And for that kind service with a smile, I offer five stars.

      I have had the pleasure of customizing three pieces of jewelry with David at Mimi's over the past few years.  Each time, the staff of Mimi's has provided exceptional service.  The store atmosphere is very warm and inviting, I have always felt welcomed.  The staff makes your experience so special and were interested in hearing the reason behind the pieces I wanted designed.  Each piece of jewelry came out exactly as I wanted designed, with some minor tweaks to one piece that David was very happy to accommodate.  I have recommended this store to several people who have already been very happy with the outcome of their final jewelry pieces as well.  I highly recommend Mimi's Jewelry.

      I highly recommend Mimi's Jewelry.  Not only was the customer service superb, the craftsmanship phenomenal. David really went out of his way to help me restore my Grandmothers wedding ring.   Having recently passed, there was a lot of sentimental attachment to a very old ring that needed a lot of work. But David and team were up to the challenge!  I couldn't be more pleased with the work; I look at the ring and smile very time! Thank you, the results really speak for themselves.

  •   I recently worked with David and he gave a very fair and honest price for my mother-in-laws Rolex.  The process is always straight forward and easy.  David is a consultant professional and is upfront about the realistic value for such pieces.  I live in Illinois, but quickly became comfortable doing business with Mimi's Jewelry.  I highly recommend this business!
