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.

I brought in two rings and asked David to resize one and reset the other and also engrave both. David did a wonderful job, both rings looked gorgeous when I got them back! I got a text message notification when they were done, which was a nice touch.
Well, 203 reviews, all 5 star. Honestly I don't even know why I am writing this LOL! I have been trusting Mimi's for some odd small resizing and repairs for the last ten years or so. I love that this is a family run family owned business and the team is still here for so long. That kind of employee tenure says a lot. The storefront is beautiful and easily accessible, and the store is well-lit and inviting with a dazzling display of items which range from the dainty to the majestic. So there's something for everyone. But I moved out of California to Idaho and I found my way back to California and commissioned the technicians at Mimi's to remake my engagement ring setting. I was given a very reasonable fee and turnover time, along with overnight fedex service to my home. The CAD/CAM draft sent to me was spot on accurate and proportional, and they even sent me some stunning photography of their finished work I can include in the updated insurance paperwork. I think buying their jewelry is a wonderful experience, but coming to them for a custom job requires special attention and expertise. I wanted to merge a wedding band and engagement ring made with all princess cut stones and I had a really beautiful, really quite unique, result that I am so happy with and that I love to look at on my hand. It is also very comfortable and effortless to wear now whereas the former set up not as much, and that was really one of my top priorities. If I am willing to travel over 2,000 miles to visit family and wait to schedule this work done here, then this review is legit!! If you love jewelry, if you have legacy jewelry, or want to create custom pieces, repair or modify anything, you can trust Mimi's team to help your vision come true. I actually have two people who I have only ever entrusted with my jewelry, and one was a patient of mine whose family I treated - and once I believe she retired, Mimi's. Having a personal relationship with a jeweler is important, I think, because so often jewelry has significant sentimental value.
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.
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!
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.
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.
My girlfriend Liesel recommended this jeweler . I am so glad I checked Mimi's out normally I don't go anywhere except to my jeweler but I didn't want to drive down south so since she highly recommended him I figured I would go check him out and I'm so glad I did. I will definitely go back .
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.
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 am super pleased with the level of customer service this shop provided. They went out of their way to take care of my needs. I highly recommend them. Thanks Mimi's!
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.
