Engagement Rings in Orange County California
Finding the Perfect Engagement Ring To Buy
If you are in California and have recently decided it’s time to get engaged to your significant other, congratulations! Now it’s time to go buy the perfect engagement ring! With Mimi’s Jewelry, we’ll be helping you out with your engagement ring shopping.
From choosing the right type of engagement ring from the diamond shape, type of metals, ring settings, or a custom engagement ring.
Diamond Engagement Rings
The next thing you will want to do is decide on a diamond shape that your significant other favors. If you have an idea or are getting confused with all the diamonds available, let us know the preferences and we can help you decide and will greatly narrow down the rings to view as the potential ones.
Gold Or White Gold Engagement Rings?
Engagement rings can be selected with a metal band made of yellow, white or rose gold, or platinum for a few extra dollars. If you prefer the silvery color but don’t want to shell out a lot more money for a ring with a platinum band, white gold is a great alternative. Rose gold has also grown very popular due to its uniqueness and flashy color.
If you already know your significant other’s preference for metal jewelry, you’re in good shape. Does she wear a lot of silver? Or is she more interested in yellow gold? If you already know the answer to those questions, you should immediately know what metal to select for the band of her engagement ring.
Go With A Certified Diamond
One of the most critical aspects of an engagement ring is to ensure that the diamond is certified. Certified means that the stone comes from an accredited laboratory like the American Gem Society or the Gemological Institute of America. These are diamonds that have the highest quality grades.
Here at Mimi’s Jewelry, we are committed to giving you the best diamond engagement rings here in Orange County.

It's such a nice shop and the service/people are excellent! I was referred by a friend and thankful I found this place. Will be back for sure!
I am super pleased with the level of customer service this shop provided. They went out of their way to take care of my needs. I highly recommend them. Thanks Mimi's!
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.

Recently, my sister and I wanted to have my late mother's wedding ring appraised. We took it to several jewelers to be certain we got a fair and honest price. Like most people, we know very little about the jewelry business and were afraid of being ripped-off especially since it was our mother's ring. After a thorough inspection, not only did David at Mimi's Jewelers offer us the highest price but he invited us to be involved in every step of the process. The diamond was extremely old (maybe a century) and he needed to see how much of it was salvageable since there were numerous cracks. In the end, we received more than we expected (he offered 3X more than another jeweler) and we were more than satisfied. On top of this, he was patient and knowledgable. Thanks to David, Mimi's is our new favorite jewelry store!
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.
Well, 203 reviews, all 5 star. Honestly I don't even know why I am writing this LOL! I have been trusting Mimi's for some odd small resizing and repairs for the last ten years or so. I love that this is a family run family owned business and the team is still here for so long. That kind of employee tenure says a lot. The storefront is beautiful and easily accessible, and the store is well-lit and inviting with a dazzling display of items which range from the dainty to the majestic. So there's something for everyone. But I moved out of California to Idaho and I found my way back to California and commissioned the technicians at Mimi's to remake my engagement ring setting. I was given a very reasonable fee and turnover time, along with overnight fedex service to my home. The CAD/CAM draft sent to me was spot on accurate and proportional, and they even sent me some stunning photography of their finished work I can include in the updated insurance paperwork. I think buying their jewelry is a wonderful experience, but coming to them for a custom job requires special attention and expertise. I wanted to merge a wedding band and engagement ring made with all princess cut stones and I had a really beautiful, really quite unique, result that I am so happy with and that I love to look at on my hand. It is also very comfortable and effortless to wear now whereas the former set up not as much, and that was really one of my top priorities. If I am willing to travel over 2,000 miles to visit family and wait to schedule this work done here, then this review is legit!! If you love jewelry, if you have legacy jewelry, or want to create custom pieces, repair or modify anything, you can trust Mimi's team to help your vision come true. I actually have two people who I have only ever entrusted with my jewelry, and one was a patient of mine whose family I treated - and once I believe she retired, Mimi's. Having a personal relationship with a jeweler is important, I think, because so often jewelry has significant sentimental value.
I found David via Instagram and asked him to help me create a unique engagement ring for my (now) fiancée. I didn't have a ton of specifics for him, other than telling him she loved sapphires (and sharing a few rings that had caught her eye).
David was absolutely incredible to work with; he found a sapphire that was EXACTLY what I was searching for and designed an amazing and unique setting. As soon as I saw it, I could picture it on her finger.
He kept me updated regularly via email, and had it out to me even sooner than his original estimate. The end product was nothing short of stunning. I live in the SF Bay Area and couldn't be happier with my experience. Whether you're right around the corner or across the country, you can't ask for better service than David and team. He's warm, funny, responsive, and absolutely brilliant in his craft. Thanks again for everything!
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.
What an amazing experience! I brought my original engagement ring with an idea to reset my diamond. After listening to my idea, David and his team brought it to life. I couldn't be happier with my amazing new ring. Thank you!
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!!
