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.

  •   Professional, kind and quick. They purchased some gold jewelry from me. It was an easy and fair process. They also cleaned a necklace of mine for free.

      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.

      I have debated for years about posting a review about this. It still bothers me to this day. I bought a men's gold ring from the original owner, Mimi. She was very kind and personable with my kid. I later noticed an imperfection in one of the diamonds to which she simply said well its not that high of a quality. I came back and got an ok deal on an 18k yellow gold band, then I met Her son, David. He was very polite and professional. We then started talking about watches and he observed my Tudor watch I was wearing. Still Unsatisfied with my diamond quality, He mentioned that he also buys watches and would make it up to me. After a brief discussion he agrees to buy my Tudor watch for $2000 (it was worth 3800 at the time). I drive 30 mins home to get him the box and papers and 30 mins back to finish our deal. After I return Out of nowhere, He says he can't buy my Tudor watch. I asked him why and he simply said, it's not what we're looking for right now. I was appalled at the lack of integrity and cavalier attitude of not honoring his word. He then said "well it's not worth the risk, it won't sell well." I told him I couldn't believe he was going back on his word to which he said "sorry, you want gas money?" This is simply not good business. I spoke to Mimi later and she told me how sorry she was but that she has to support her son even when he's wrong. Even she was shocked he went back on his word. To this day I'm stuck with that ring with the bad diamond. Hopefully everyone else has better luck with them.

      David is truly an artist!! I went to him because my wedding rings were starting to change shape due to the bands being platinum, which is very soft and malleable. He immediately came up with a design and drew it out right in front of me. I fell in love with it immediately!! He estimated 4-6 weeks to get it back due to how busy he has been, and he got it back to me almost 4 weeks to the day!! The diamonds sparkled as if they were brand new, and I have been married for 11 years!! He is so honest and knowledgeable, he is a master of his craft! I highly recommend Mimi's as it is a local family owned business and David will not disappoint!!

  •   The first time I visited this establishment I noticed how personable the owner and staff were to the customers who came in. The owner actually addressed each customer by name. He actually knew each person's name as they walked in. Aside from doing fabulous work in terms of design, making and cleaning my jewelry, which would be expected, their customer service goes beyond what I'd ever expect. I am now one of those customers who walks in and is addressed by my name. It feels like home. Thank you to all of your staff who has created an environment that makes me want to come back and refer others to your business. Keep up the great work.

      David was super helpful with resizing my fiancée's ring. Contacted him on yelp and responded very quick, had an appointment, and finished the ring within 3 hours (usually people ask for a couple of days) with his very reasonable pricing. Before leaving, I asked if I could check the stone under the microscope and he let me. Thank you, David! I highly recommend this Jewelry.

      I picked up my ring today and WOW- I was completely blown away and speechless!  I can't stop looking at my ring. It is absolutely perfect. I went to David to "upgrade" the center diamond on my wedding ring for our 25th anniversary. He exceeded all of my expectations.  First, we scheduled a meeting so I could tell him exactly what I was looking for. David is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and he is also friendly and easy to talk to. His communication was excellent throughout the process. He is accessible through phone, email and text. I felt very safe and trusted him with my wedding ring. On the day of pick up, I was emailed an appraisal with all the proper certifications which I was able to send to our insurance for immediate coverage. Everything was seamless throughout this whole process and I could not be happier!!

  •   I was referred to Mimi's from a family member and I am so thankful for the referral. First time in I was greeted and treated with so much respect. David was amazing and I requested a custom piece. He took the time to go over what I wanted and he worked up a rendering. The piece would take about a month to make. I received constant updates through out the process. When I got the piece, I was blown away. Great work. Great quality. Great prices. Great customer service. Great place that I will be going from now on for any jewelry needs.

      This place is just awesome.  I went last Saturday and talked to Mimi about making a ring for my husband and doing some work on my wedding ring.  They did an amazing job on both rings.  Prices were very reasonable and the quality of the work was outstanding.  Everyone who works there is helpful and nice.

      I'm so pleased with the customer service and overall results from Mimi's Jewelry! I was referred to Mimi's by my jeweler out in PA; my husband got my wedding set from her but we live in Orange County. I needed to get my wedding set professionally cleaned and I hoped Jen could point me in the right direction. I'm so happy she did! David and his team are absolutely wonderful! They were kind, patient, and so helpful! My wedding set looks brand new again!

    I am also interested in making a jewelry purchase soon and Mimi's will be my first (and hopefully only) stop. Thank you so much!
