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!

Jewelry restoration requires several technical steps in order to bring each piece as close as possible to its original condition.

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.

  •   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.

      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.

      We were looking for a trusted local jeweler and everyone in the community recommended Mimi's. Sure enough, the service was fantastic. They have a good selection of diamond and gemstone pieces in the store, but they also design their own custom pieces.

  •   I have a 20 year old Tag Heuer SEL that needed a battery change and one of the links was broken.

    However, I live in Georgia. Quite a ways from California. However I had heard of his care and attentiveness to customers' property and no matter what it is, treats it as his own.

    I sent him the watch with my spare link I had, he replaced the battery, seal, repaired the link and then polished the watch to where it looked BRAND NEW once again!

    Within days it arrived to my surprise better than I sent it to him!

    5 stars Mr. Truong! You earned it!

      I was referred to Mimi's from a family member and I am so thankful for the referral. First time in I was greeted and treated with so much respect. David was amazing and I requested a custom piece. He took the time to go over what I wanted and he worked up a rendering. The piece would take about a month to make. I received constant updates through out the process. When I got the piece, I was blown away. Great work. Great quality. Great prices. Great customer service. Great place that I will be going from now on for any jewelry needs.

      This is my number one, go-to place for getting my jewelry fixed or resized. I found them through yelp because of the great reviews, and have never been disappointed, they've done an amazing job every time I've gone to them, even with my most delicate pieces.

    They also very honest about any limitations. I brought in a ring once long ago that had a silver finishing to it that was particular to the jeweler who made it, and told me they wouldn't be able to replicate that finish and therefore wouldn't be able to resize it for me. They are also super knowledgeable about different styles and can even give you know more information about vintage jewelry.

    This jewelry store is my favorite in OC and I'll definitely continue to go to them for all of my jewelry needs! Thank you, David and staff!!

  •   I have been going to MiMi's jewelry for over 2 decades. On my latest visit, I turned in old gold I was no longer wearing, so easy.  I also had the prongs of my wedding ring upgraded. When I picked up my ring, it was dazzling! It looked like the first day it was given to my 27 years ago. They are always helpful and knowledgeable. They do an excellent job at Mimi's jewelry!

      I got married in February and the stone in my ring has been loose since March and i haven't been able to wear it!! I looked around and inquired to a few places about getting my stone tightened. Some places were worried to even touch my ring since its a morganite stone. Mimi's was confident they could tighten my stone and was very fair in price since i was a first time customer. In less than 1 week my ring was finished and they did an amazing job!! I will absolutely be using Mimi's as my go to jeweler! The staff is passionate about their work and their customer service is amazing too! I'd personally give more stars but yelp only allows 5.

      THE BEST!

    David and team are the best in the biz. Needed a ring resized, and it was the easiest process. Super communicative over both email and text, and the work was completed very quickly. I'm now in the process of designing another ring for my wife, and the process is a breeze. I don't want to work with anyone else!

  •   David is truly the best jeweler ever! My (now) fiance and had been looking around at rings for awhile and I had gotten some inspiration but didn't find anything that was perfect for me.. After searching for months around the area (we live in Lake Tahoe), my parents told us to take a trip down to see David.

    In the meantime, we were gifted a vintage ring that belonged to my fiances grandmother. The ring had a lot going on with several diamonds of different sizes so I wasn't sure how we would be able to build my dream ring.... But David came to the rescue!

    He's incredible. He spent time getting to know us and our lifestyle before even diving into the design (I think that is his secret). He was able to mock up my dream ring by understanding us as a couple and incorporated every design aspect I could have dreamed of. His attention to detail is impeccable and the final product is out of this world.

    He is unique and so knowledgeable, not to mention the best jeweler in the game... Every girl dreams of their wedding ring from a young age but David was able to design a ring that blew my "dream ring" out of the water. It is everything I could've imagined and more.

    Being in Tahoe, we were still involved in every step of the process of designing. As we got closer to the final product, David kept me out of the equation and worked with my fiance to add the finishing touches. When the time came.. I was ecstatic and blown away!!

    Every element of surprise was there and I am still in awe of the ring on my finger.. It is the most beautiful piece of jewelry I have ever seen and it embodied every part of Scott and I as a couple. The vintage design elements put the ring over the top and really plays into the vintage diamonds we used. PERFECT doesn't even begin to describe it. We will be going to David for every single jewelry need from now on.

      I'm so thrilled with my custom ring from Mimi's. David took so much time and effort to listen to exactly what I wanted. He was able to capture a timeless piece by incorporating my late Mom's wedding band and diamonds into a brand new piece. Thank you so much David and Mimi's...I can't wait to visit again soon.
