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.

Our Client’s Love Us!
David crafted the most beautiful engagement ring for me! I appreciate his expert work and friendly service. I will definitely be returning for future jewelry.
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.
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.
Nicest people! Very professional and helpful. Will definitely come back!!
They have a large selection on all kids of jewelry!!
quiet good, hard in communicating is the problem. not all are cheap. don't know where is the best price. size also the problem
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.
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.
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!
We live 3,000 miles away but Mimi's is the only place we purchase our jewelry. David and his staff are the best without a doubt.
Dropped off one pearl earring just to get a simple back replacement. Good thing I kept the other pearl earring in my possession. I trusted this jewelry place and did not throughly micro inspect my pearl. When I got home I noticed that it was a completely different pearl than the one I gave them plus it had scratches and dents on it. Please inspect your jewelry. This people keep yours and give you back a shitty replacement. Now I need to make the drive and go back to that shop.
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.
