Jewelry appraisals require the application of apt professionalism to realize the benefits. We at Mimi’s Jewelry consider expertise as one of the foremost essential aspects of the appraisal process. Equipped with top gemologists for the evaluation process, accessing jewelry appraisal is now easier than ever.

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.

Mimi’s Jewelry, Inc – Orange County’s Finest Jeweler

Our Client’s Love Us!

  •   David is truly the best jeweler ever! My (now) fiance and had been looking around at rings for awhile and I had gotten some inspiration but didn't find anything that was perfect for me.. After searching for months around the area (we live in Lake Tahoe), my parents told us to take a trip down to see David.

    In the meantime, we were gifted a vintage ring that belonged to my fiances grandmother. The ring had a lot going on with several diamonds of different sizes so I wasn't sure how we would be able to build my dream ring.... But David came to the rescue!

    He's incredible. He spent time getting to know us and our lifestyle before even diving into the design (I think that is his secret). He was able to mock up my dream ring by understanding us as a couple and incorporated every design aspect I could have dreamed of. His attention to detail is impeccable and the final product is out of this world.

    He is unique and so knowledgeable, not to mention the best jeweler in the game... Every girl dreams of their wedding ring from a young age but David was able to design a ring that blew my "dream ring" out of the water. It is everything I could've imagined and more.

    Being in Tahoe, we were still involved in every step of the process of designing. As we got closer to the final product, David kept me out of the equation and worked with my fiance to add the finishing touches. When the time came.. I was ecstatic and blown away!!

    Every element of surprise was there and I am still in awe of the ring on my finger.. It is the most beautiful piece of jewelry I have ever seen and it embodied every part of Scott and I as a couple. The vintage design elements put the ring over the top and really plays into the vintage diamonds we used. PERFECT doesn't even begin to describe it. We will be going to David for every single jewelry need from now on.

      Had a gold ring I never wear, and rather sell it than have it sit around.  I originally took it to one of those buy gold shops, and didn't feel comfortable with their evaluation, and also felt they were low balling me.  I spoke with David at Mimi's and can tell he knew what he was talking about, and gave me a very fair deal.  He's a super nice guy, and honest.  Thanks!

      This review is long overdue, but better late than never! Mimi's Jewelry sincerely deserves every bit of praise and 5 stars given to them! I've known David at Mimi's Jewelry for 5 years now from when a friend of mine was proposed to with a gorgeous engagement ring designed by the amazing David. Since then, I've commissioned David to create jewelry for myself and have even referred other friends to him over the years. The first time I collaborated with David, I brought him images that I found online and asked if he could bring the designs and my ideas to life - he exceeded all expectations! The dainty ring and delicate diamond necklace he created for me were absolutely stunning, but his professionalism and genuine kindness turned me into a loyal client. The second time I met with David, I sold jewelry to him and it was such an easy and comfortable transaction. Last year, my girlfriends and I collaborated with David to turn an old sentimental diamond bracelet into matching friendship anklets for us girls, and the whole process was such a breeze from start to finish. We were thrilled with our new matching friendship anklets, but even happier with the overall experience. I recently needed to have a watch resized in time for new job interviews and sent David a quick message requesting to come by after work; he responded swiftly and even remembered the usual time I'm off of work!! If that doesn't show how impressive David's attention to detail AND commitment to client service is, I don't know what else to tell you! David's professionalism, warm personality, and beautiful designs are impeccable - he will wow you with his creations and keep you coming back with his outstanding service. The effort he puts into his work on top of maintaining relationships with his clients are truly unmatched; I don't know how many other ways I can emphasize this. Thank you for being your awesome self all these years, David! I can't wait for you to design my engagement ring one day (when I'm ready LOL)!

      I have been going to MiMi's jewelry for over 2 decades. On my latest visit, I turned in old gold I was no longer wearing, so easy.  I also had the prongs of my wedding ring upgraded. When I picked up my ring, it was dazzling! It looked like the first day it was given to my 27 years ago. They are always helpful and knowledgeable. They do an excellent job at Mimi's jewelry!

      I got married in February and the stone in my ring has been loose since March and i haven't been able to wear it!! I looked around and inquired to a few places about getting my stone tightened. Some places were worried to even touch my ring since its a morganite stone. Mimi's was confident they could tighten my stone and was very fair in price since i was a first time customer. In less than 1 week my ring was finished and they did an amazing job!! I will absolutely be using Mimi's as my go to jeweler! The staff is passionate about their work and their customer service is amazing too! I'd personally give more stars but yelp only allows 5.

      Great jewelry store! I came in for a resizing. It was done in about a week and the work was great. They texted me with updates on my order, nice added service. Good selection from what I saw in there. Will definitely check it next time I'm shopping for jewelry!

      I reached out to Mimi's via Yelp. I needed my girlfriends ring repaired and cleaned. I was hoping for it to be done before the 14th knowing well that it was highly unlikely. However, they achieved this and more by having it fixed and cleaned incredibly well on the 13th.
    I really appreciate the effort and care put into the ring.
    They were informative and professional with a welcoming atmosphere. I will definitely be returning for all my jewelry needs.

    Pictures are before and after.

  •   This is my number one, go-to place for getting my jewelry fixed or resized. I found them through yelp because of the great reviews, and have never been disappointed, they've done an amazing job every time I've gone to them, even with my most delicate pieces.

    They also very honest about any limitations. I brought in a ring once long ago that had a silver finishing to it that was particular to the jeweler who made it, and told me they wouldn't be able to replicate that finish and therefore wouldn't be able to resize it for me. They are also super knowledgeable about different styles and can even give you know more information about vintage jewelry.

    This jewelry store is my favorite in OC and I'll definitely continue to go to them for all of my jewelry needs! Thank you, David and staff!!

      I'm so thankful I found Mimi's over 14yrs ago. I was so nervous to have anyone mess with my engagement ring but the center stone needed a different placement & David was highly recommended. Not only did he fix & secure the center diamond he made the new layout better than anything I could of imagined. I thought I loved my ring before but he made it the ring of my dreams. Now 14yrs & 3 kids later I needed to resize the band. I don't live in CA anymore but there's no way I would trust anyone else, so I brought my ring on our trip to CA & David took care of it before going back home. My band has detailed engraving all over it, he added more gold & matched the existing engraved work, you can't even tell anything was done it's flawless. Now I can finally wear my wedding ring again & it fits perfectly. Thank you David & staff for fitting us in & taking such good care of something so dear & important to my heart.

      David at Mimi's worked closely with my fiancé to design and make the most beautiful emerald-cut engagement ring for me. I love its elegance and receive compliments on it all of the time.  I love it so much that when I decided to have a ring made for my fiancé, the first thing I did was call David.  He was wonderful and patient throughout the whole process. He designed and crafted an exquisitely masculine ring.  All of this is even more amazing as we live in Reno, NV and he is in Southern California.  We will continue to collaborate with David on any future customs designed jeweler.  His staff were very helpful and facilitated all of the shipping and paperwork, including insurance documents.  David is an brilliant designer and craftsman.  I give Mimi's a perfect score for exceeding all expectations!!
