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 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!
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 .

I reached out to Mimi's via Yelp. I needed my girlfriends ring repaired and cleaned. I was hoping for it to be done before the 14th knowing well that it was highly unlikely. However, they achieved this and more by having it fixed and cleaned incredibly well on the 13th.
I really appreciate the effort and care put into the ring.
They were informative and professional with a welcoming atmosphere. I will definitely be returning for all my jewelry needs.
Pictures are before and after.
They did a beautiful job taking 3 very different rings and combining into one beautiful, delicate ring. Wonderful service, absolutely worked with us until we found the design we liked.
I picked up my ring today and WOW- I was completely blown away and speechless! I can't stop looking at my ring. It is absolutely perfect. I went to David to "upgrade" the center diamond on my wedding ring for our 25th anniversary. He exceeded all of my expectations. First, we scheduled a meeting so I could tell him exactly what I was looking for. David is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and he is also friendly and easy to talk to. His communication was excellent throughout the process. He is accessible through phone, email and text. I felt very safe and trusted him with my wedding ring. On the day of pick up, I was emailed an appraisal with all the proper certifications which I was able to send to our insurance for immediate coverage. Everything was seamless throughout this whole process and I could not be happier!!

I'm so thankful I found Mimi's over 14yrs ago. I was so nervous to have anyone mess with my engagement ring but the center stone needed a different placement & David was highly recommended. Not only did he fix & secure the center diamond he made the new layout better than anything I could of imagined. I thought I loved my ring before but he made it the ring of my dreams. Now 14yrs & 3 kids later I needed to resize the band. I don't live in CA anymore but there's no way I would trust anyone else, so I brought my ring on our trip to CA & David took care of it before going back home. My band has detailed engraving all over it, he added more gold & matched the existing engraved work, you can't even tell anything was done it's flawless. Now I can finally wear my wedding ring again & it fits perfectly. Thank you David & staff for fitting us in & taking such good care of something so dear & important to my heart.
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.
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!!
