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.

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

  •   I took the necklace my wife wore on our wedding day to have it repaired for our 5 year anniversary and to upgrade it. David and his team did excellent work on the piece but more importantly, even though their schedule was fully booked, they managed to have it ready on the date of our anniversary. Thank you David and team for making our anniversary extra special.

      I highly recommend Mimi's Jewelry.  Not only was the customer service superb, the craftsmanship phenomenal. David really went out of his way to help me restore my Grandmothers wedding ring.   Having recently passed, there was a lot of sentimental attachment to a very old ring that needed a lot of work. But David and team were up to the challenge!  I couldn't be more pleased with the work; I look at the ring and smile very time! Thank you, the results really speak for themselves.

      Great local jewelry store in Fountain Valley near Albertsons. I cane in for a strap change for my watch. Not only did they do it with no issues , they didn't charge me. Most shops would have charged at least $10-15. Customer service is second to none in the area. Will now be my primary local jeweler.

      We loved our entire experience at Mimi's jewelry! David did an amazing job incorporating the diamonds from my grandmas' jewelry into an engagement ring that is not only beautiful but full of memories. He listened to what we wanted and the ring turned out even better than what we imagined.

      David at Mimi's was super honest, he quoted me the highest on buying my ex wife's wedding ring back. I went to the original builder of the ring and he offered less and wasn't as honest and upfront as David was. Will for sure be coming back for life and have earned my business for the future.

    Highly recommend

      Mimi's Jewelry is truly the best jewelry store with the most sweetest and knowledgeable employees and owner. They will forever be my go-to for anything jewelry.

    And you might see their perfect reviews and be skeptical because believe me, I'm the type to be skeptical when a place/service has too many 5 star reviews, seeming too good to be true. But trust me, Mimi's Jewelry has truly and sincerely earned every 5 star review they have.

    I first heard about them through my fiancés mother who raved about the place and told me she's been going to them for nearly a decade. I bought my first piece of jewelry from them years ago and suggested them to my mom who was looking for a new wedding band. They took wonderful care of my mom and she is now devoted to them as her go-to jewelry store. My fiancé bought my engagement ring from them and he said it was the smoothest and enjoyable experience working with the employees and owner, David, picking the perfect ring for me. They make custom, quality jewelry at such a good, fair price. They're even so great that I found out my bestfriend's grandma has been going there for nearly a decade too and it's her go-to jewelry store as well.

    I can't say enough great things about Mimi's! They are loved by so many people I know and it's for good reason!

  •   From beginning to end, David and his staff provided exceptional service. Not only is he a certified gemologist which is very important when investing in jewelry, but David listens, pays attention and finds commonality with each of his customers. He communicated along each step of the process and held to his time commitment. The ring he created for me is nothing short of spectacular!! I have giggled the whole way home and feel incredibly beautiful when wearing my new wedding ring re-designed after 35 years!! My husband and I feel like we have gained a friend and I will never purchase jewelry anywhere else. You can trust them knowing that they will fiercely protect your valuables. I would give them a 6 star rating if I could.
