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.

      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!

  •   We needed to fix a diamond wedding ring and thought this would be the perfect time to update it, we had a few ideas we wanted to incorporate to the ring.  David worked with us and helped recreate a beautiful ring.  He went above and beyond our vision.  The final result is a timeless everlasting work of art, a custom piece that my husband and I very much appreciate.
    Thank you Mimi's Jewelry!

      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!

      We were looking for a trusted local jeweler and everyone in the community recommended Mimi's. Sure enough, the service was fantastic. They have a good selection of diamond and gemstone pieces in the store, but they also design their own custom pieces.

  •   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.

      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!
