Orange County Jewelry Repairs, Restorations & Ring Resizing

Keeping Our Precious Jewelry Precious

Jewelry is often the most meaningful and valuable of your personal items. Whether it is a wedding ring commemorating your love for your sweetie, a pair of earrings handed from one generation to the next, or that hard-earned anniversary watch you received from your employer, jewelry is a continual symbol of your love and admiration.

Naturally, you want to protect, maintain, and repair these precious items that you will likely wear for a good part of your lifetime. It is worth finding a solid jeweler to establish a relationship for all your jewelry care needs. Jewelry restoration Orange County can provide these benefits for your beloved items.

Maintaining Your Jewelry

A diamond ring, pendant, or bracelet is brilliant when it is first acquired and cherished. It will seem to stay shiny for a while, but all that hand- and dishwashing, lotion, and everyday dust and dirt will make it look dingy – almost faded. But if you take it to a jeweler, they can:

  • Do their ultrasonic and steam magic
  • Inspect the settings of your jewelry. To the naked eye, it may look like your ring is in perfect shape and those prongs are holding the gems in place, but a jeweler can use specialized magnifying equipment to see each prong and setting.
  • If any prongs or parts are bent or damaged, the jeweler can restore the parts to ensure your setting is secure. Jewelers highly recommend that you have your ring inspected by a jeweler on a regular basis.

From the caring and capable hands of your jeweler, you’ll be amazed at how sparkly and shiny your jewelry looks.

Be sure to have damaged items repaired

Necklaces, bracelets and other jewelry can easily be damaged by:

  • Everyday wear and tear such as scrapes against walls and furniture
  • Getting caught in your hair or sweater
  • A small child yanking on it

It’s so disconcerting to feel a chain being pulled apart while you’re wearing it. Fortunately, jewelry repair Orange County can easily fix or solder a chain clasp and its mechanisms – so if you bring it in quickly, you will be admiring it in the mirror again before you know it.

 

Restoring That Treasured Item

If your piece is damaged or is missing gems, or you have antique jewelry, you may feel that piece is too worn or not fixable. But instead of having it sit in your drawer or jewelry box, your Orange County jeweler can rescue and revitalize that piece. Or they can repurpose a piece for you – for example, taking a gem from a ring and transforming it into a pendant. An on-site master jeweler will take special care to bring that piece to a wearable state so you can admire it again, or pass it on to a loved one, rather than having it sit in limbo.

The Size Of Your Ring Is Important

When you are given that ring from your grandmother to give to your intended, the ring will most likely not be the correct size. Whether too large or too small, a jeweler can adjust the size of your ring to fit perfectly – ring resizing Orange County. Having the correct size ring will prevent your ring from sliding around or having to resort to using butter or soap if it won’t come off. But a proper fit will also help prevent the wear and tear caused by an incorrect size.

Watch Repair Orange County

Jewelers also work with watches – you can have them adjusted for size, replace the battery, or replace damaged parts. They can also buff out scratches on a watch face or even add a different band if you are ready for a change.

Mimi’s Jewelry in Orange County has a long-standing reputation of doing repair & fine jewelry restoration.

All work is done onsite by master jewelers & gemologists ensuring the same attention to detail that we use when creating our award-winning custom designs. Nothing is ever truly lost or broken. We can fix it!

Ring Sizing
Have a ring that is too small or too big? This is a very common problem that can usually be easily remedied.

Not all types of metals can be resized, but we’ll work with you to find the best solution.

  •   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 was in to fix three chains and to add magnet clasps to them.  Such a lovely experience with Kat.  She took such good care of me and treated me like I was spending a lot of money (I wasn't).   However, when I do purchase it will definitely be at Mimi's and hopefully with Kat!

  •   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.

      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.

      I have a 20 year old Tag Heuer SEL that needed a battery change and one of the links was broken.

    However, I live in Georgia. Quite a ways from California. However I had heard of his care and attentiveness to customers' property and no matter what it is, treats it as his own.

    I sent him the watch with my spare link I had, he replaced the battery, seal, repaired the link and then polished the watch to where it looked BRAND NEW once again!

    Within days it arrived to my surprise better than I sent it to him!

    5 stars Mr. Truong! You earned it!

  •   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!

      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!

      David was absolutely amazing to work with. I was very nervous about sending someone my engagement ring, but he was able to custom fit a wedding band..and it looks stunning. He was able to take an idea from a photo and make it even better. We also sent David a diamond that was my grandmothers and had him make a pendant for me. It turned out absolutely stunning. Excellant communication. Amazing quality.

      Really excellent jeweler! I would say jewelry store but that does not do justice to the artistry provide by David in redesigning my wife's engagement ring. Exemplary service and the result tools her breath away and brought on tears (might have been the 18 years with me? Hmmmm). Highly recommend for any jewelry needs,  fair pricing and great people.
