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.

      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.

  •   We went to visit David for our engagement and wedding bands and both my husband and I are blown away with the professionalism and quality with David and Mimi's. My fiancé had my engagement band custom made and it was exactly what I wanted.  I cannot recommend Mimi's enough and can't wait to go back for more jewelry.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      My fiancé and I decided we are for sure getting our wedding bands here and replacing my current engagement ring setting here. The customer service and personalization is second to none. David and all the staff here are incredible people with a heart to serve. I'm so grateful we found him and this jewelry store because I know we are in good hands. Thank you for everything. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

  •   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.

      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.
