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!

  •   Came to Mini's Jewelry looking for a specific style of ring to propose to my girlfriend. Mimi designed the ring in Solidworks/CAD before even starting the ring which I thought was really cool as we could make design iterations before finalizing what the ring could look like. Mimi delivered a beautiful ring in a super reasonable time and for a good price. I was very happy with my decision to go through this shop and especially with Mimi. Even though this isnt the biggest or priciest ring, I felt like she gave me all the time and attention in the world to get the details right. Thank you so much for the wonderful ring and experience!

      Excellent service. I'll be honest when I see a place that only has 5 star reviews it's hard not to wonder if they are all real reviews. From my experience Mimis has some excellent service. I had a ring sized and a bracelet sized. Both were done beautifully and in a timely manner and for a great price.

      Great 1st experience at Mimi's and it will not be my last. Don't let other places tell you they can't resize a diamond eternity band. The owner, David, worked his magic and was able to size up my band.  Top notch work, great price, and friendly service.
    Thank you!

  •   Can't say enough about David and his staff.  They've been my go-to for many years because of their customer care and quality service.  I had my wife's engagement ring custom designed by them which was an amazing project using material from my Grandmother's old ring and collaboration with her two close friends.  David was very patient during this process and his professional guidance was priceless.

    Recently, we had an "accident" with the ring while a friend was trying it on.  It got stuck to the point that we had to cut it off.  The ring, not the finger.  I shipped it to David (we now live in Nor Cal) and it was fixed in less than a week.  Wife said it looks even better than before and was so happy.  I highly recommend Mimi's Jewelry!

      I'm giving Mimi's a 5 star rating, only because they don't have an option for 10 stars.  I could not have been more pleased with the work they did for me!  I wanted to have a ring re-set, and I had very specific ideas in mind.  David listened to me, understood what I wanted, and gave me some very good design advice.  The result is, in my opinion, absolutely stunning.  It is EXACTLY what I wanted.  I'm so happy I went to Mimi's Jewelry, and plan to have more work done there in the future.  Can't say enough about their work and customer service!

  •   Super place to do business. I purchased a mens wedding ring and David was very helpful and gave me a great price. Service was outstanding and you won't meet a nicer guy.

    I will be back when it is time for my wifes anniversary ring.

      Many thanks to Mimi, David and the team at Mimi's Jewelry.  They have seen my vision for heirloom pieces on three occasions . David and Mimi created beautiful, quality pieces for all four of our children, daughters-in-love and me.  Special memories are priceless and the team at Mimi's gets that.

      If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. I'm in awe with the work that David and the Mimi's Jewelry team just did on my rings and earrings. For years I've been told by other jewelers that the work I needed done on my wedding ring couldn't be done because of how the diamonds were set in the band. Even a simple resizing couldn't be done. I finally took my beloved ring to David because I knew he's an expert craftsman and well-known in our community for quality work. He's the only person I would trust with my band. The ring came back gorgeous, sparkly, polished, and properly resized. The work done on my beat-up (well-loved) ring was so beautiful that it moved me to tears. I was stunned. It looked brand new!! David was also able to give me some information on another ring I brought in to be re-sized that I found in an antique shop in New Zealand. Again, that sapphire ring came back even more beautiful. The high quality work was equally impressive on the repair of pearl earrings I've had since my honeymoon years ago. YELP people, this jewelry store is the real deal. They're professional and friendly, and best of all, they truly know the art of high-end jewelry craftsmanship. Thanks, David!

  •   Very accommodating and offered to size my watch free of charge due to a glitch from the manufacturer.  Also, offered to find the exact Breitling I was in the market to purchase at a discount.  Very pleased and they will be my jewelry store in the future

      Have bought several items from Mimi's, all have exceeded expectations. Also had David make a couple new pieces from some estate and inherited gems - his creativity, attention to detail and results are amazing. Even more importantly the service at Mimi's is just incredible. It's like having a jeweler in the family!

      Mimi's Jewelry is a first rate business. I had my wife's engagement ring and wedding bands made here and was treated beyond fairly. I got a beautiful custom ring  that took into account the very specific qualities of the diamond I had and my wife's very small hands. It came out stunning and my wife gets comments all the time on the ring.

    Dave, the owner, kept me apprised of the progress of the ring throughout the entire process and finished my ring well ahead of my deadline. He's also got impeccable taste so it was safe to leave most of the decisions up to him...no way I could have designed a ring better myself.
