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!

Fine Restoration
Loose diamonds, details lost their luster, missing part of a set? Nothing is ever truly lost of broken. We’ll fix and restore your precious pieces. Jewelry restoration requires several technical steps in order to bring each piece as close as possible to its original condition. Antique jewelry needs special care and Mimi’s Jewelry is your source for full service restorations.

Mimi’s has decades of experience repairing jewelry for our clients. We offer a high level of expertise and our master goldsmiths are able to perform even the most intricate repairs with ease.

Ring Sizing
Have a ring that is too small or too big? This is a very common problem that can usually be easily remedied. Stretching or adding a bridge allows us to size rings up, while simply cutting a small piece and rejoining allows us to size them down. Not all types of metals can be resized, but we’ll work with you to find the best solution.

  •   Great jewelry store! I came in for a resizing. It was done in about a week and the work was great. They texted me with updates on my order, nice added service. Good selection from what I saw in there. Will definitely check it next time I'm shopping for jewelry!

      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!!

      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 got our ring appraised here and David was not only professional but also personal and knowledgeable.  Appears to be really honest which is critical in any business but especially in the jewelry business when things and value could be more subjective.  

    He also does a lot for the community.  I always see him volunteer or involved with school events.  If you have any jewelry needs then this is your place.

      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.

  •   My sister's boyfriend and I were referred to this local shop by my mother after feeling a little lost and overwhelmed after a couple trips to DTLA's jewelry district. David was so helpful reassuring us that he could find a diamond with the specifications we wanted within our budget instead of settling. He also recommended the hidden halo and prongs that would make the stone stand out the most. He can make the same styles that you find on any popular Instagram site here in the OC, and you don't need to drive all the way to LA. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a custom designed ring to come here for the best quality and price, and you get to support a local family owned business! 🙂

      Wow! What a gem of a place to find right around the corner from us. They got us exactly what we wanted and didn't price gouge us at all. I'm in love with the ring. They got me the exact setting I wanted and set the moissanite stone so perfectly it sparkles even in the worst light. It honestly feels magical and I find myself staring at it all the time! Not only that but they got the ring to us in record time so we could have it for the engagement AND offered to help my fiance by faking that it "wasn't going to be ready on time" so I could be surprised. This business cares about you as a customer and I'd give this place 10 stars if I could.

      Mimi's Jewelry is an amazing place of business. The staff is courteous and provide excellent customer service. I went in to sell my diamond rings. David gave me a very fair price for my jewelery. He walked me through the entire process and gave me a realistic estimate for what I could sell my diamonds. He was consistent with everything I read online and he offered me a cash payout that was more than fair. I would definitely do business here again and would go back to purchase jewelery. Their display cases had pieces that anyone would be pleased to own.

  •   Wonderful customer service. Had my wedding ring repaired. My 33 year old ring looks brand sparkling new-can't stop looking at it! Mimis also re created my moms wedding ring after melting it down & using her original diamonds-more beautiful than I could ever have imagined! Highly recommend them. Will bring all my jewelry needs to Mimis.

      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!

      Had a gold ring I never wear, and rather sell it than have it sit around.  I originally took it to one of those buy gold shops, and didn't feel comfortable with their evaluation, and also felt they were low balling me.  I spoke with David at Mimi's and can tell he knew what he was talking about, and gave me a very fair deal.  He's a super nice guy, and honest.  Thanks!
