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.

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.

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.

 

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.

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.

  •   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.

      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

  •   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!

  •   I was planning on proposing to my girlfriend and knew exactly what kind of ring I wanted. I had the center stone but needed someone to create the setting I had in mind. He was willing to work with my very accelerated timeline - I needed the ring quickly because of a sudden opportunity to travel in Europe, and I wanted to use that opportunity to propose to my girlfriend while traveling there together in April. I needed the ring quickly and he made it happen! He was very receptive to my questions and was able to perfectly create what I wanted, with great communication and updates along the way.

    My now-fiancée and I truly love the ring and we are both so happy with David's work. It's better than we imagined and the work is clearly very high quality. Notably, his French pavé cut is superior to the ones we had looked at online and in other stores. The side stones are beautifully brilliant. Even a couple months later my fiancée can't stop staring at the ring, and she always gets compliments on it. We will recommend Mimi's Jewelry to our friends and will certainly return to him in the future for any other jewelry work, including our wedding bands.

      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'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!

      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!

      Wonderful place to get that individual attention. My husband bought me a 25th wedding anniversary ring. I literally tried on every ring in the store. Friendly service.  They also fixed some other jewelry for me. So happy with everything. Thanks I love my ring
